Echocardiography

An echocardiogram (ECHO) uses ultrasound to capture images of your heart while it beats. This is the same non-invasive ultrasound technology used to check the health of a baby during pregnancy.

An echocardiogram is used to assess the anatomical function of your heart; valves, chambers, size and shape of the heart, pumping capacity, how the heart relaxes, blood flow in the heart (Eg. leaky valves) location and extent of cardiac disease.
