Echocardiography is an investigation that uses sound waves to produce live images of your heart. The image is an echocardiogram. For the 2D ultrasound, they provide flatter, two-dimensional, black and white image. Our Centre provide 4D ultrasound which is an actual moving three-dimensional image of your heart. This investigation allows your doctor to monitor how your heart and its valves are functioning.
Your doctor may order an echocardiography for several reasons. For example, they may have discovered an abnormality from other testing or while listening to your heartbeat through astethoscope. If you have an irregular heartbeat, your doctor may want to inspect the heart valves or chambers or check your heart’s ability to pump. They may also order one if you’re showing signs of heart problems, such as chest pain or shortness of breath.
This investigation is suitable for all of you.
