Echocardiography

An echocardiogram (echo) is an imaging test. It helps your doctor evaluate your heart.

The Test

  • Is safe and painless.
  • Can be done in a hospital, test center, or doctor’s office.
  • Bounces harmless sound waves (ultrasound) off the heart. A transducer (device that looks like a microphone) is used.
  • Helps show the size of your heart. It also helps show the health of the heart’s chambers and valves.
