Echocardiogram 1

An echocardiogram, often called an “echo,” is a medical imaging test that employs ultrasound technology to create images of the heart. It is a non-invasive and widely used procedure for evaluating the heart’s structure and function. During an echocardiogram, a transducer emits high-frequency sound waves and captures the echoes bouncing off the heart. These echoes are then processed to generate images of the heart’s chambers, valves, and blood flow. The test provides valuable information about the heart’s size, shape, and how effectively it pumps blood.

Echocardiograms play a critical role in diagnosing various heart issues, including valve problems, congenital heart defects, cardiomyopathy, and pericardial diseases. They are also used to measure the heart’s pumping function, known as ejection fraction, and to evaluate the direction and speed of blood flow within the heart. Cardiologists and healthcare professionals rely on echocardiography to assess and manage heart disease, making it an indispensable tool for cardiac care.
