Echocardiogram

An echocardiogram (‘echo’) is an ultrasound study used to evaluate cardiac structure and
function.

The test is performed by a cardiac technician using a probe and jelly on the chest wall to obtain images, which are subsequently interpreted by a cardiologist. It is not necessary to be admitted to the hospital for this procedure, which takes about 30 minutes. The result of the test is then sent to your Consultant.
