 About Echo

Cardiac echocardiography is one of the most common diagnostic techniques which are used to evaluate the heart, its valves and the beginning of large arteries by the cardiologist. Echocardiography is a non-invasive technique such as ECG but is more advanced. No radiation or a dangerous wave is transmitted to the patient during echocardiography. High-frequency sound waves are guided to the heart and echoes are recorded by a specific receiver.

  • Transthoracic echocardiography: This is the most common type of echocardiography. It’s painless and noninvasive. A device called a transducer will be placed on the chest over the heart.
  • Transesophageal echocardiography: If a transthoracic echocardiogram doesn’t produce definitive images, the doctor may recommend a transesophageal echocardiogram. In this procedure, the doctor guides a much smaller transducer down the throat through a thin, flexible tube in the mouth.
  • Stress echocardiogram: A stress echocardiogram uses traditional transthoracic echocardiography. However, the procedure is done after exercise or taken medication to make the heart beat faster.
  • Three-dimensional echocardiography: A three-dimensional (3-D) echocardiogram uses either transesophageal or transthoracic echocardiography to create a 3-D image of the heart.
  • Fetal echocardiography: Fetal echocardiography is used on expectant mothers sometime during weeks 18 to 22 of pregnancy. The transducer is placed over the woman’s belly to check for heart problems in the fetus.
  • Patients who have a serious heart condition, such as uncontrolled heart failure, irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias), or significant valve disease
  • Patients who have symptoms of heart disease, such as chest pain or shortness of breath
  • Patients who get tired or out of breath more quickly than they did in the past
  • Patients who have an abnormal chest X-ray or electrocardiogram that points to heart problems.

Patients should tell a complete medical history to the doctor. Also, they need to let him know about all of the medicines and supplements (vitamins, minerals and herbal medicines) taken and allergies.

Usually, the doctor administers sedative drugs and local anaesthesia. An echocardiographic expert performs echocardiography by a special probe. The procedure takes about 15 minutes to 40 minutes. Patients should be calm during the whole procedure (except stress echocardiography). The heart movements are seen on a video page, and during the test, the patient can also watch the video. A video or photo tape can be provided, too.

The cardiologist will explain the results for the patient. Patients can leave the hospital right after the procedure.
