2D Echo

A 2D Echocardiogram is a non-invasive procedural method that provides excellent and clear images of the heart and vessels in the center using high-frequency sound waves. During the procedure, a transducer sends out ultrasonic sound waves at a frequency too high to be registered at the normal hearing level. When the sensor is placed on the chest at specific locations and angles, the ultrasonic waves travel through the skin and other body tissues to the heart structures. These sound waves are sent to a computer to create moving images of the heart walls and valves.

An Echocardiogram can be performed to evaluate the signs or symptoms that may indicate:

  • Valvular heart disease
  • Aneurysm
  • Cardiomyopathy
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Congenital heart disease
  • Atherosclerosis
  • Pericarditis

Benefits of a 2D Echo Test

  • It helps in identifying blood clots in the heart.
  • It can spot the presence of any fluid in the sac around the heart.
  • It helps in the identification of problems with the aorta, which is the main artery.
  • It helps to determine the presence of blockages in the artery which is formed due to fat accumulation.
