Echocardiography (2D ECHO)

Expert diagnosticians use echocardiography to perform non-invasive diagnostic testing of the heart using high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to produce a moving image of the heart in action. This procedure allows the physician to evaluate the heart’s structure and function. It can show how the valves are working, provide information about the thickness of the valves and how they are moving, and how blood is flowing through the heart, as well as provide information about the arteries.
