An echocardiogram, or echo, is a medical test that uses ultrasound technology to create images of the heart. It provides valuable information about the heart’s structure, function, and blood flow.
Our doctors recommend an echocardiogram to assess the health of your heart, diagnose heart conditions, monitor heart disease treatment, or evaluate heart murmurs.
In most cases, there’s no special preparation required. You can usually eat and drink as usual. However, you may be advised to wear comfortable clothing and refrain from applying lotions or oils to your chest on the day of the test.
You will lie on an examination table, and a technician will apply gel to your chest. A transducer will be moved across your chest to obtain images of your heart. It’s a painless and non-invasive procedure.
