An Echocardiogram is an ultrasound of the heart. Ultrasound waves are used to create a visual image of the heart which can help to diagnose and monitor certain heart conditions. The image allows the sonographer to check the structure of the heart, the heart valves and the surrounding blood vessels to analyse how blood flows through them and to assess the pumping chambers of the heart.
Echocardiograms are safe and painless and can be done from birth. Unlike other imaging techniques, such as X-Rays, they do not use radiation and there are no lasting effects.
