What We Do

An Echocardiogram uses sound waves (ultrasound) to record moving images and is useful for assessing the size of the heart chambers and walls, heart muscle function, heart v​​alve function, blood clots or masses in the heart, fluid around the heart, presence of holes or defects between the heart chambers, and abnormalities of blood flow within the heart. It can play an important role in managing the medical care of cardiac patients and timing cardiac surgery.
