An echocardiogram is used to evaluate underlying causes of cardiac symptoms, such as chest pain or difficulty breathing. It’s a pain-free, risk-free way to effectively evaluate your heart health.
An echocardiogram is used to help your cardiologist determine:
The size of your heart
How effectively your heart is pumping
The function of your heart valves
The quality of your heart muscle
The flow of blood through your heart
Changes or progression of a heart condition
When your heart needs to be evaluated closely and effectively, an echocardiogram may be an important diagnostic tool. Advanced Heart and Vein Center offers multiple types of echocardiogram tests to help your cardiologist deliver the best cardiac care possible.
