Echocardiography

This test is an ultrasound evaluation of the structure of the heart. It is useful to assess the contraction of the heart and to detect heart valve disease. It is performed over 30 to 60 minutes and involves placing lubricating jelly on the chest and the scanning with an ultrasound probe. More detailed images can be obtained with a separate test which involves swallowing a tube, a Trans-oesophageal Echocardiogram.
