Echocardiography

 

Transthoracic

 

An echocardiogram, or “echo” as it is commonly referred to, is an ultrasound of your heart.  Sound waves are used to produce an image of your heart.  From these images, the size, function and structure of your heart muscle and valves can be assessed.  We can also provide information about the pressures within your heart and lungs.

 

A Cardiologist will review your scan and it will generally be reported on that day.  The results of your test will be sent to your referring doctor for discussion.
