Echocardiography

Echocardiography is an ultrasound study of the heart. High-frequency sound waves are used to form real-time images of the heart, heart chambers and structures as they work. A Doppler echocardiogram allows our radiologists to see how blood flows through your heart and observe valve function. Echocardiography is painless, does not use X-rays and is not invasive.
