Echocardiography

This is a type of diagnostic medical imaging, which produces a sonogram/ultrasound of the heart.

There are two methods of performing the procedure, one involves a transducer being positioned on the chest of a patient (transthoracic) - similar to pregnancy scans but on the chest - and another which produces a clearer image, requiring a probe/transducer being passed into the patient’s oesophagus (transoesophageal).

Echocardiograms are used to help identify and diagnose a range of cardiac conditions, providing visual images of the shape and size of the heart, stroke volume, atrioventricular valves, anatomical and/or congenital abnormalities and tissue damage (such as that associated with ischaemia and coronary heart disease).
