How does echocardiography work?
Consultant Cardiologist Navtej Chahal explains how echocardiography works.
Echocardiography works by using ultrasound, which we frequently use to image other parts of the body. It transmits ultrasound impulses from a probe, which is lightly held against your chest. The ultrasounds are transmitted into the body and reflected by the heart, and the probe then processes the returning signals. A digital moving real-time image is displayed on the screen, enabling us to get high-resolution images of the heart in real-time.
I invite you to book a consultation with Many Beats if you have any concerns about your heart health or if you’re concerned about your risk going forward. We will see you in a timely fashion in a location in London, and we’ll provide you with a very streamlined service.
