Echocardiography

Track 13: Echocardiography

Echocardiography is a painless test that uses sound waves to create moving pictures of your heart. The pictures show the size and shape of your heart. They also show how well your heart's chambers and valves are working. It pin point areas of heart muscle that aren't contracting well because of poor blood flow or injury from a previous heart attack. It also detects possible blood clots inside the heart, fluid buildup in the pericardium and problems with the aorta. The American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) is a professional organization made up of physicians, sonographers, nurses, and scientists involved in the field of echocardiography. Echocardiography is performed by cardiac sonographers, cardiac physiologists (UK) or trained doctors in echocardiography. Echocardiography was invented by Milton R. Hejtmancik, MD, from which he was awarded the AMA Billings Gold Medal in 1972.
