Echocardiography or as frequently called just ECHO is ultrasound of the heart. Today Echo has literally replaced the old conventional stethoscope for a cardiologist. With Echo, Cardiologist can see all the chambers of the heart, all the valves, all the layers of the heart and pumping action of all the chambers in real time. Even the the blood flow through all the valves and in chambers can be easily seen in Echo with Colour Doppler. Today every cardiologist is helpless without Echo. This is very important tool to diagnose all sorts of heart disease including the pumping capacity of the heart chambers, conditions of all the valves (narrowing or leakage of valve), size of the chambers, congenital (birth-defects) heart conditions and many more.
