What is an Echocardiogram?

echocardiograms are available at square one health group in mississauga .An echocardiogram (echo) uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image of your heart’s movement. During an echo test, your healthcare provider will place a hand-held wand on your chest to take pictures of your heart’s valves and chambers. This helps to visualize the pumping action of your heart to show the blood flow through the heart and valves.
There is no form of radiation used in an echocardiogram therefore, it will differ from tests like X-rays and CT scans. Other names for this test are heart ultrasound and heart sonogram.

What is a Stress Echocardiogram?

In order to check how the heart responds to physical activity, a stress echocardiogram may be done before and after exercise. This type of test will be ordered if your provider suspects that you have coronary artery disease. If physical activity is not an option, medication can be used to induce a faster heart rate.

What is an Electrocardiogram?
