An echocardiogram is an instrument that uses ultrasound waves in the body to produce images of the heart and to measure the direction and speed of blood flow. Echocardiograms have a transducer that turns electrical energy into sound waves. These bounce off the tissues in the heart and produce a recording either onto a videotape or computer for later analysis.
Your Jackson Heights vascular doctor may order an echocardiography for a number of reasons. These include:
Our trained sonographers perform the echocardiogram as an outpatient procedure. The procedure lasts between 30-60 minutes.
There are various types of echocardiography techniques available. Your Jackson Heights Cardiologist will determine which is the most suitable one for you. Depending upon the type of echocardiogram you need, you will get different specific pre-test directions.
Echocardiography is a safe procedure, although patients undergoing a TEE may experience minor throat discomfort for a few days following the procedure.
