An echocardiogram or ‘echo’ is a valuable ultrasound scan that produces a detailed view of your heart and nearby vessels. The echocardiogram can show how your heart is working, and enable doctors to diagnose and monitor cardiac abnormalities such as heart failure or congenital heart diseases.
How does it work?
A small probe is used to produce to send out ultrasound waves that bounce back and create an image of your heart on the screen.
The test is carried out by a specialist cardiac physiologist, and the results will be reviewed by an experienced doctor. Our echocardiogram in Harley Street can help detect conditions such as:
- 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 test. Your test result will be provided to you by email, and should you like to discuss your results with a doctor, we can organise a consultation immediately.
