Frequently Asked Questions:

An echocardiogram is a non-invasive ultrasound test that uses sound waves to create images of the heart. It is a painless and safe procedure that can be used to diagnose a variety of heart conditions, including:

  • Heart valve problems
  • Heart muscle disease
  • Heart rhythm problems
  • Congenital heart defects
  • Heart failure
  • Pericarditis (inflammation of the lining around the heart)
  • Cardiomyopathy (disease of the heart muscle)

An echocardiogram is performed by a healthcare professional called a sonographer. The sonographer will apply a small amount of gel to your chest and then place a transducer on your skin. The transducer sends out sound waves and receives the echoes that bounce back. These echoes are used to create images of your heart.

The echocardiogram can be performed in a variety of positions, including lying on your back, your side, or sitting up. The procedure usually takes about 30 minutes.

There are no known risks associated with an echocardiogram.

You should tell your doctor about any medications you are taking, including over-the-counter medications.

You can go about your normal activities after an echocardiogram. There are no special restrictions.

The possible findings of an echocardiogram include:

  1. Normal heart structure and function
  2. Abnormalities in the heart structure or function, such as heart valve problems, heart muscle disease, or heart rhythm problems
  3. Signs of heart disease, such as coronary artery disease or heart failure
