Echocardiographyis a non-invasive and non-painful technique in which the echoes of sound waves are captured by means of a transducer, allowing the recording of heartbeats and the movement of blood through the heart. In this way, diseases in the structure and function of the heart and its valves can be diagnosed and monitored without emitting radiation. This test lasts between 10-15 minutes in which the patient should not move. The electrodes that are placed on the torso, allow a record of the heart and its structures.
There are three types of echocardiography:
Transthoracic echocardiography,transesophageal echocardiography and 3D echocardiography. Echocardiography is performed to diagnose when a person has suffered a heart attack, has heart failure, has damaged valves, has an implanted artificial valve, or has had a heart transplant.
