Echocardiography or echo, is a painless test that uses sound waves to create moving pictures of your heart. The pictures show the size and shape of your heart. They also show how well your heart's chambers and valves are working. This test is done on a Colour Doppler Machine. At EHL Diagnostics we have the most advanced machine for Echocardiography manufactured by GE Medical USA. This machine gives very accurate measurements of the various cardiac parameters. Our Cardiologist Dr Jagmeet S Soin has a long experience of 45 years in the field of Preventive Cardiology. A graduate of AIIMS and post graduate of the prestigious John Hopkins University, Dr Soin specializes in interpreting the results of Echocardiography and the health of your Heart.
Echo also can pinpoint areas of heart muscle that aren't contracting well because of poor blood flow or injury from a previous heart attack. A type of echo called Doppler ultrasound shows how well blood flows through your heart's chambers and valves. A healthy heart must have an Ejection Fraction of 60% which means that each time your heart contracts it pumps 60% of the blood from the Left Ventricle to the Aorta. If the ejection fraction is low it means that heart will have to work more to pump the same amount of blood and this may slowly lead to heart failure. So getting an echocardiography regularly is a cheap and effective way of finding about the health of your heart.
Uses of Echocardiography
Echoccardiography can detect many heart problems. Some might be minor and pose no risk to you. Others can be signs of serious heart disease or other heart conditions. We at EHL Diagnostics may use echo to learn about:
The size of your heart. An enlarged heart might be the result of high blood pressure, leaky heart valves, or heart failure. Echo also can detect increased thickness of the ventricles (the heart's lower chambers). Increased thickness may be due to high blood pressure, heart valve disease, or congenital heart defects.
Heart muscles that are weak and aren't pumping well. Damage from a heart attack may cause weak areas of heart muscle. Weakening also might mean that the area isn't getting enough blood supply, a sign of coronary heart disease.
Heart valve problems. Echo can show whether any of your heart valves don't open normally or close tightly.
Problems with your heart's structure. Echo can detect congenital heart defects, such as holes in the heart. Congenital heart defects are structural problems present at birth. Infants and children may have echo to detect these heart defects.
Blood clots or tumors. If you've had a stroke, you may have echo to check for blood clots or tumors that could have caused the stroke.
