Views of Heart

The 4 views of the heart can be interpreted from different perspectives based on the individual patient’s body habitus and position.

The parasternal views are obtained with the probe positioned just left of the sternum at the intercostal. The apical 4-chamber view of the heart is obtained by placing the probe just below the nipple line at the point of the maximal impulse of the heart.

The subxiphoid 4-chamber view is obtained with the probe aimed up toward the left shoulder from a position just below the subxiphoid tip of the sternum.
