Heart Ultrasound (Echocardiogram)

Heart Ultrasound provides your doctor with moving pictures of your heart and takes excellent pictures that will help your doctor to evaluate your heart’s health. This ultrasound uses the same technology that allows doctors to see an unborn baby inside a pregnant mother. A specially trained technician called a sonographer moves a microphone-like device called a transducer over the chest. This device allows the sonographer to capture images of the heart while it is beating. Sometimes, the Sonographer will add color to the screen to highlight the direction of the blood flowing in and out of your heart. This may help your doctor when he is analyzing the images of your heart.
