An echocardiogram is a painless non-invasive scan that produces images of the structures within your heart. It can show how your heart is working, enabling consultants to diagnose abnormalities or cardiac conditions.
How does it work?
A pulse of high-frequency inaudible sound is transmitted through your chest by placing a recorder (probe) on the chest wall. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves produced by the machine as they bounce off the different parts of your heart to form an image of it. The test is carried out by a specialist cardiac physiologist, and the results are reviewed by a cardiologist. Our echocardiogram in Harley Street can help diagnose conditions such as:
- Damage from a heart attack.
- Heart failure.
- Congenital heart disease.
- Problems with the heart valves.
At 58 Harley Street, we can offer same-day appointments for your echocardiogram. A full report is provided to you at the end of the screening, signed off by a cardiologist, and if you need to discuss your results further, we can organise a consultation promptly.
