An echocardiogram is an ultrasound of your heart - a detailed and non-invasive assessment of your heart to look at its structure and function.
What we do
Over a period of 45 minutes, we perform a detailed examination of your heart, using an ultrasound probe on your chest to take pictures of your heart from different angles. The test is non-invasive and doesn't involve radiation.
