Echocardiogram (ECHO)

An echocardiogram (also called an ECHO) is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart. The doctor could see how your heart is beating and pumping blood. The doctor can use the images from an echocardiogram to identify various abnormalities in the heart muscle and valves.
