Dr. Mark Stern

Rarely & only a part: Rarely on a very good echo you can see a small part of the beginning of the left coronary artery, but this test should not be used to assess the coronary arteries.
Dr. Mark Gujer md fasa
Anesthesiology 26 years experience
Only: For a very short distance as they leave the aorta and usually seen best during a tee ( transesophageal echo).
