An echocardiogram is a non-invasive imaging technique that uses sound waves to create detailed images of the heart's structure and function.
During an echocardiogram, a transducer is used to capture images of the heart from different angles. The procedure is painless and does not require any incisions or radiation exposure.
An echocardiogram provides information about the size, shape, and movement of the heart's chambers, valves, and blood vessels. It helps assess heart health, detect abnormalities, and diagnose cardiovascular conditions.
Echocardiograms are commonly used to evaluate heart valve disorders, congenital heart defects, heart failure, abnormal heart rhythms, and overall heart function.
