Echocardiogram (Cardiac Ultrasound)


The Echocardiogram is an ultrasound of the heart. We can investigate the heart pump and relaxation function and look into the chambers and valves.

There might be valvular leakage ( regurgitation) or abnormal pumping function of the heart.

In some cases, we will recommend you have a relevant blood test.

  • Take your relevant medical history
  • Investigate your  Heart muscle, valves, and  surround layers  with an Ultrasound
  • Explain all findings during and after your  scan
  • Write an official scan report after or within 24 hrs, with appropriate images included in the report
  • Recommend a follow-up echocardiogram if necessary
  • Offer GP or specialist referral and a Blood Test if needed

There is no preparation for echocardiogram.

You will receive your results verbally during your scan. Besides, the practitioner will examine the relevant images and prepare a written report after your scan or within 24 hours with any recommended actions so you can discuss the findings with your doctor if required.

Our doctor will explain the procedure before your scan. You will be guided to lie down on your left on the examination couch. A small amount of water-based gel will be applied to your chest. Our specialist will move the probe on your skin to produce diagnostic images. You will not feel any discomfort during your scan. An echocardiogram is regularly completed within 30 minutes.

There are no risks, side effects, or radiation associated with an echocardiogram. It is pretty safe during pregnancy.
