what is an echo test?

An echo test is an ultrasound scan that helps board-certified cardiologist Dr. John K. Terzian study the heart’s structure and function. High-frequency sound waves echo from an ultrasound wand directed on the outside of your chest to create an outline of the heart’s valves and chambers. This image allows Dr. Terzian to analyze blood flow throughout the heart and evaluate its pumping chambers. If you’re experiencing any distress or discomfort, you can take an active role in your diagnosis and treatment. Schedule an appointment with our cardiac testing team at Bridgewater Primary Care & Cardiology in West Bridgewater, MA to learn more about the echo test and the different techniques we use to get details about your heart.

What Does an Echo Test Detect?

An echo test can help diagnose certain heart conditions, monitoring and checking the heart’s structure and function as it circulates and pumps blood. This test can help Dr. Terzian decide on the best treatment by detecting the following:

  • Cardiomyopathy: Thickened or enlarged walls of the heart
  • Endocarditis: Heart valve infection
  • Heart failure: Lack of blood pumping in the body at the right pressure
  • Heart damage: Sudden blockage of blood supply to the heart
  • Congenital heart disease: Defects from birth that may affect how the heart works
  • Heart valve problems: Difficulties with heart valves that control circulation within the heart

This test can also exhibit other changes in your heart that could lead to a blood clot, tumor, or aortic aneurysm.
