Echocardiogram

Echocardiography is the mainstay of cardiovascular diagnostics, and is the most commonly performed test for the evaluation of cardiac function. Echocardiography provides a wealth of information such as internal chamber size quantification, pumping capacity as well as location and extent of myocardial tissue damage. Not only can it create images of the heart structures, but it can also produce accurate assessment of blood flow through the cardiac system using pulsed or continuous wave Doppler. Colour Doppler can also be used to visualise the blood flow through the valves and cardiac system.

At Express Diagnostics we offer full a Transthoracic Echocardiogram analysis service using all the afore mentioned imaging techniques. All examinations are performed by our British Society of Echocardiography accredited Cardiac Physiologists and 25% of all Echocardiograms performed are reviewed by our Consultant Cardiologist. This guarantees the quality control standards expected in the national governance and compliancy guidelines.
