What Is An Echocardiogram?

A heart echocardiogram, also known as an echo, is a non-invasive ultrasound scan that uses sound waves to create images of the heart. It provides detailed information about the structure, function and overall health of the heart.

Echocardiograms are commonly used to diagnose and monitor heart conditions such as heart valve problems, heart muscle disorders, congenital heart defects and heart disease.

The importance of a heart echocardiogram lies in its ability to provide valuable information for accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.

Echocardiograms also help in detecting any abnormalities in the heart and provide crucial insights into the overall function and health of the heart.

Although it has a very similar name, an echocardiogram is not the same as an electrocardiogram (ECG). An ECG is a test used to record the heart’s rate, rhythm and electrical activity.

What Does An Echocardiogram Show?

An echocardiogram uses high-frequency sound waves to create detailed images of the heart’s structure and function. It can provide detailed information about the heart’s size, shape, chambers, valves and blood vessels, as well as the blood flow through the heart.

Echocardiograms are commonly used to diagnose and monitor a wide range of heart conditions, including:

How Long Does An Echocardiogram Take?

The duration of an echocardiogram can vary depending on several factors, including the complexity of the test and your circumstances. On average, an echocardiogram takes about 15–30 minutes to complete. Once the echocardiogram is complete, you can usually go home right away, as it is a non-invasive procedure that needs no recovery time.

Echocardiogram Results

After the echocardiogram, Dr Karagiannis will review the results and interpret the findings accurately. In some cases, you may receive the results immediately after the test; in others, you may need to wait for a follow-up appointment to discuss the findings in detail.

Depending on your results, you may receive a diagnosis, a personalised treatment plan or a request for further testing.
