Intraatrial Septum documentation for complete TEE

Date: Jan 26, 2023


TEE with no specific documentation of Right Atria (All other required elements are documented -LV, MV, TV, AV, PV all were imaged and findings documented)

My question is they documented:

Intraatrial septum:

The left atrial appendage is normal in appearance with no evidence of thrombus

Pulsed wave doppler of the left atrial appendage demonstrates normal emptying velocity

No interatrial septum shunt visualized by color doppler.

Is that sufficient to show that they are viewing both the left and right atria to report a complete study?
