What is an echocardiography (EHO, Echocardiogram) scan?

Echocardiography is an ultrasound examination of the heart. The method is based on the registration of ultrasound signals reflected by the heart structures. Echocardiography provides information on the functional state and structure of the heart – atria and ventricles (heart cavities), their dimensions, walls and valves, as well as the presence of accessory structures, the condition of the heart muscle (localisation and extent of myocardial tissue damage; signs of inflammation) and contractility.

It can diagnose acquired and congenital heart disease, determine the systolic and diastolic function of the heart, assess the condition of the heart valves, muscles and large blood vessels, and determine the likelihood of cardiomyopathy.
