An echocardiogram is a type of ultrasound test that checks the structure and function of your heart.

It is a graphic outline of your heart’s movement.

During the exam, high-frequency sound waves from a hand-held wand placed on your chest are used to take pictures of your heart.. It shows the flow of blood through the heart’s valves and chambers. This helps your healthcare provider evaluate the pumping action of your heart.

An echocardiogram does not use any radiation. This is how it differentiates itself from other tests like X-rays and CT scans that use small amounts of radiation.
