2D - Echo

An Echocardiogram is an ultrasound scan of the heart. It is sometimes just called an ECHO. The scan can give accurate pictures of the heart muscle, the heart chambers, structures within the heart such as valves and also the pressures and volumes in the heart chambers.  
   
In Aditya hospital concern person will use the measurements to determine how your heart is working and whether or not any abnormalities are present. A Doppler echo is often done at the same time in order to determine how the blood flows in your heart. The swishing sounds you hear during the test indicate blood flowing through the valves and chambers.  
   

What It Detects?

 
   
Echocardiography is a significant tool in providing the physician important information about heart on the following :
 
  • Size of the chambers, volume and the thickness of the walls
  • Pumping function, if it is normal or reduced to a mild/severe degree
  • Valve function – structure, thickness and movement of heart’s valves
  • Volume status as low blood pressure may occur as a result of poor heart function
  • Pericardial effusion (fluid in the pericardium and the sac that surrounds the heart), congenital heart disease, blood clots or tumours, abnormal elevation of pressure within the lungs etc.
