Echocardiogram Test for Heart Health
Echocardiograms are a definitive measure of the structure & function of the heart. Using sound waves to produce moving images, the physiologist can detect abnormalities of the muscle & valves whilst measuring performance.
You may already have a heart disease diagnosis or other heart-related health conditions such as heart failure, heart attack, heart murmur, or valve disease. All of these require regular monitoring, so you may be more than familiar with the long waits between visits to your cardiologist or between cardiac assessments.
Our private cardiologists are glad to provide a quick, easy, and stress-free alternative, offering regular consultations with minimal wait times and reliable echocardiogram procedures in order to stay on top of your heart condition and required treatment. Whatever your health concerns, our private echocardiogram service can help you maintain your heart’s health and avoid significant or unexpected deterioration.
The main purpose of an echocardiogram test is to detect changes or deterioration in the heart early on, before you begin to experience symptoms or miss the ideal window to begin treatment. Regular echocardiogram procedures also allow your cardiologist to monitor change, be it positive or negative.
If you have symptoms of breathlessness on exertion, dizziness, chest pain, palpitations, chronic or progressive fatigue, problems with your breathing at night, fluid retention; if you have had long term or particularly high blood pressure or been diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation; if you value your health & feel like taking stock – an echocardiogram can be a useful investigation for these and many other symptoms.
