An echocardiogram is key in determining the health of the heart muscle, especially after a heart attack. It can also reveal heart defects in unborn babies (Fetal Echocardiography).
Patient can drink, eat & take routine medications. No special preparation is necessary.
Cardiologist will give detailed report of the test & discuss treatment plan with you.
Transthoracic echoacrdiogram is most commonly performed. It is done to determine the size of your heart, to evaluate functioning or pumping of the heart and to assess the structure and function of the valves within the heart. It gives cross-sectional “slice” of the beating heart, including the chambers, valves and the major blood vessels that exit from the left and right ventricle.
A Doppler echocardiogram measures the speed and direction of the blood flow within the heart. It also screens the four valves for leaks and other abnormalities. By assigning color to the direction of blood flow, (Color Flow Mapping), large areas of blood flow may be studied. These color flow mappings allow abnormal blood flow characteristics to be interpreted by the cardiologist.
