An echocardiogram (ECHO) uses sound waves (ultrasound) to create a picture of your heart. The recorded waves show the shape, texture and movement of heart valves, as well as the size of your heart chambers and how well they are working.
An ECHO may be done to assess a variety of heart conditions, such as heart murmurs, damage to heart muscle in those who have had a heart attack, and infections in the heart.
It is recommended too if someone is experiencing abnormal heart sounds, shortness of breath, palpitations, chest pain or have a history of stroke. It is very useful in diagnosing heart valve problems.
