Frequently Asked Questions

 

What is an Echocardiogram (Echo)?

An Echo is an Ultrasound of the heart used to assess the function of the heart muscle, valvular function and blood flow within the heart. Images are acquired by placing an ultrasound transducer over the chest wall.

What is a Stress Echocardiogram (Stress Echo)?

A full ECG is recorded during the test. Echo images are taken of the heart while you are in a resting, supine position and also immediately after exercise on a treadmill. This test is done primarily to determine if there is any significant coronary artery disease or heart rhythm abnormalities.

What is an Electrocardiogram (ECG)?

12 electrodes are placed on the chest to record the heart’s electrical rhythm.

What is a 24 hour holter ECG?

5 ECG leads are worn by the patient for 24 hours during which the heart’s electrical rhythm is recorded.  This is to assess for palpitations or heart rhythm abnormalities.
