2D Echocardiography
This is also known variously as Echocardiogram, Trans-thoracic echocardiogram, 2DE, 2D echo or just Echo. It is an ultrasound examination of the heart. This is also a very common examination done by the cardiologist. It enables the function of the heart muscle to be assessed. It also examines the valves of the heart and measures some internal pressures of the heart.

Essentially, you will lie on your left side for about 15 to 20 minutes while this test is being performed. A probe is placed on your chest to obtain a view of the heart from different angles. This is totally painless process.

In Cardiac Specialist Centre, all echoes are reviewed by specialists who have undergone advance training in echocardiography, and are accredited echo-cardiologists. This ensures that the quality of the examination is of high standard.
