A 3D heart ultrasound, also known as a 3D echocardiogram, is a diagnostic test that creates 3D videos of the heart.
This simple, painless test uses an ultrasound probe and gel on the skin of the chest. The probe sends and receives ultrasound waves to create videos of the heart. This is the same technology that is used to monitor babies during pregnancy.
Ultrasound can reveal the size and function of the heart’s chambers and valves. This test can also detect damage to heart tissue and gather information about irregular beats or arrhythmias.
