Echocardiography

  • An echo is an ultrasound that is used to take pictures of your heart. 
     

  • It gives important information about the size, shape, and function of your heart. 
     

  • It looks at your valves to make sure they are working properly.
     

  • It also assesses the hearts ejection fraction, or how well it is pumping and squeezing.
