A beautiful heart

I started my day this morning in a darkened room while someone I love dearly underwent transthoracic echocardiography (TTE). The literature describes it as the primary noninvasive imaging modality for quantitative and qualitative evaluation of cardiac anatomy and function.

When the technician completed the 40-minute procedure, he shared his perspective: "A beautiful heart."

I could have told him that at the outset if he had only asked.
