Echo- Echocardiography

What is Echo?

This technology uses sound waves to create images and helps to diagnose heart problems. It helps heart specialist diagnose your heart condition. This test is just to examine how the heart valves and chambers are pumping blood or moving blood through the heart.

Echocardiography is an imaging technique which produces live images of the heart. It is a very safe diagnostic technique as it uses sound waves to produce images which are termed as “Echocardiogram”.

This diagnostic test helps cardiologists to monitor the health of a patient’s heart. They can examine the working of arteries and valves. This technique is helpful in getting information about the heart:

  1. This test helps doctors in spotting any blood clot in the heart vessels.

  2. It also helps in detecting the presence of any kind of fluid in the sac that is present around the heart.

  3. It helps in detecting any issues with the aorta.

Furthermore, it is very safe and effective diagnostic technique to determine heart health. This test also used in examining the heart health of an unborn baby. Another great thing about this technique is that it is a painless and non-invasive diagnostic technique.

Our expert cardiologists prescribe this test to patients if they find something suspicious in some other test reports or while examining the patient through a stethoscope.

Types of Echocardiography test


1.Transthoracic echocardiography

This is one of the most widely prescribed Non-invasive and painless forms of echocardiography. It uses a device called a transducer. This device is kept on the patient’s chest, exactly above the heart. This device connected to a computer.

Once placed above the heart, this device starts emitting sound waves that travel through the chest, hit the heart and bounce back and reach the transducer. A computer then interprets these sound waves and creates images. Therefore, it helps in producing live images of the heart to views on a computer monitor.

2. Transesophageal echocardiography

By this technique, we get accurate information about the functioning of the heart, in the form of images. When cardiologists do not get the satisfactory information from Transthoracic echocardiography, they suggest the patient go for Transthoracic echocardiography.

In this technique, the transducer is set much closer to the patient’s heart. This is achieved by installing the tiny transducer at the tip of a thin tube and then inserting that tube into the patient’s mouth. This tube travels through the esophagus(food pipe) and is inserted to the point where the transducer reaches just behind the patient’s heart. Now the transducer is very close to the heart. And, that is why it results in producing better images.

The thorax of the patient is made numb in order to avoid the tickling sensation by which process easier for the patient and technician as well.

3. Stress Echocardiography

This process is similar to Transthoracic echocardiography but the difference is that it conducts after a patient does some exercise. Mostly, It examines the performance of the heart while a patient under stress.

4. 3D Echocardiography

This technique is implemented for both Transthoracic and Transesophageal echocardiography. In this process, the images are taken from more than one angle to generate a 3-D image of the heart. It is very much useful before conducting any sort of heart surgery.

5. Fetal Echocardiography

This is the same as Transthoracic echocardiography. However, the difference lies in the fact that it diagnoses any sort of heart issues in the fetus. So, the transducer is put over the belly of the pregnant woman to produce images of an unborn child. Mostly, It conducts after the 18th week of pregnancy

Hence, this technique is completely safe for the unborn child as it does not use any radiations.
