ECHO - Echocardiogram :


An echocardiogram (echo) is a graphic outline of the heart's movement. During an echo test, ultrasound (high-frequency sound waves) from a hand-held wand placed on your chest provides pictures of the heart's valves and chambers and helps the sonographer evaluate the pumping action of the heart. Echo is often combined with Doppler ultrasound and colour Doppler to evaluate blood flow across the heart's valves

Why is an echocardiogram performed?

The test is used to:

Assess the overall function of your heart

Determine the presence of many types of heart disease, such as valve disease, myocardial disease, pericardial disease, infective endocarditis, cardiac masses and congenital heart disease

Follow the progress of valve disease over time

Evaluate the effectiveness of your medical or surgical treatments
