An echocardiogram is a scan which gives detailed view of your heart structures (chambers and valves), and can show how well your heart is working.
At Harley Street Physicians you can have an echocardiogram in Harley Street, during which a pulse of high frequency (inaudible) sound will be transmitted through the skin of the chest by placing a recorder (probe) on the chest wall. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart to form an image of it.
This test can help detect:
- Damage from a heart attack
- Heart failure
- Congenital heart disease
- Problems with the heart valves
At Harley Street Physicians we can offer same day appointments for your echocardiogram in Harley Street.
A full report will be provided at the end of the test. Should you like to discuss your results with a specialist, we can organise a consultation promptly.
