Echocardiography or sonogram of the heart is the imaging test of the heart, which provides important information about heat size, structure and pumping function. Sonogram of the heart allows congenital heart disorders, structural heart diseases and valvular diseases of the heart to be identified. This non-invasive test is fast to administer, safe for the patient and easily reproduced. The patient lies down relaxed, and the doctor is moving the sensor on the chest surface, watching the image on the screen, i.e. “watches the heart by means of ultrasound”.
Echocardiography lasts for about 15 minutes, but the time the test takes can be longer depending on the patient. Results are printed out and given to the patient.
