By virtue of modern technology, cardiologists have the ability to gather a wealth of invaluable insights and data from diagnostic procedures like echocardiograms.
What is an Echocardiogram?
An echocardiogram is, in short, an ultrasound of the heart. Ultrasounds use sound waves to create images that give the doctor a literal picture of the patient’s health. In the case of an echocardiogram, the doctor will be able to see whether the heart is structurally and functionally healthy. The images will show how blood moves through the valves and chambers of the heart. There are various types of echocardiograms, and which you have depends on what Dr. Sharma is looking for.
