An echocardiogram is an ultrasound which allows consultants to look at the structures within the heart to see how well your heart functions.


What information does an echocardiogram provide?

An echocardiogram can give information about the size, shape and structure of the heart and the valves, as well as the location and extent of any tissue damage. It helps identify certain types of heart disease.

They are also useful in assessing heart function, particularly in the case of:

  • Abnormalities in heart valves
  • Atrial fibrillation
  • Congenital heart disease
  • Fluid build-up around the heart
  • Heart disease or angina
  • Heart failure
  • Heart murmurs
  • Infected heart valves
  • Pulmonary hypertension
  • Identifying a blood clot after transient ischemic attack/stroke


What happens during the test?

A gel is applied to a small transducer probe (echo recorder) which is moved around your left chest wall area. A pulse of high-frequency sound is then passed through the skin and this sound is reflected from parts of the heart to create an image of the heart on the screen.
