Echo Cardiography

A test called echocardiography creates real-time images of your heart using sound waves. The photograph is known as an echocardiography. Your doctor can use this test to keep an eye on the health of your heart and its valves.

The images can help them get information about:

  • The size of the heart, for instance, if there is any change in the chamber size, dilation, or thickening
  • Blood clots in the heart chambers
  • Fluid in the sac around the heart
  • Problems with the aorta, which is the main artery connected to the heart
  • Problems with the pumping function or relaxing function of the heart
  • Problems with the function of heart valves
  • Pressure in the heart

Understanding the condition of the heart muscle, particularly following a heart attack, requires an echocardiography. Additionally, it can identify heart abnormalities or problems in unborn children.

An echocardiography is a painless procedure. Only very seldom and only when contrast is utilised during particular types of echocardiograms are there hazards.

Your doctor might want to examine your heart's chambers or valves if there is an irregular heartbeat, as well as test your heart's pumping power. Additionally, if you exhibit heart-related symptoms like shortness of breath or chest pain, or if your ECG is abnormal, they might order one for you.
