Echocardiography is an ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer; it is commonly used for diagnosis of heart diseases and can create images of heart by using standard two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and Doppler ultrasound.
It is a simple and painless procedure that uses sound waves to take “pictures” of our heart and shows the heart rhythms. Echocardiography can detect possible blood clots inside the heart, fluid buildup in the pericardium (the sac around the heart), and problems with the aorta.
Echocardiography tests are performed by trained sonographers in which ultra-high-frequency sound waves will pick up images of the heart and valves. Echocardiography test doesnot use X-rays.
