BREAKING DOWN – Echocardiogram

If your doctor thinks there may be a problem with your heart, they may recommend an echocardiogram. An echocardiogram can diagnose damaged heart valves, pumping strength issues, heart tissue damage, leaky valves, and more.

Different types of echocardiograms include transthoracic and transesophageal. A transthoracic echocardiogram is the least invasive. It consists of the spreading of gel on the chest with the device pressed against your skin to view the heart. A transesophageal echocardiogram allows doctors to view your heart valves better. In this scenario, a tube is guided down your throat to get a clearer image.
