Types of Echocardiogram

Cardiac Catheterization
Cardiac Catheterization

Stress echocardiogram: This is an echocardiogram that is performed while the person exercises on a treadmill or stationary bicycle. This test can be used to visualize the motion of the heart's walls and pumping action when the heart is stressed.

Cardiac Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan
Cardiac Computerized Tomography (CT) Scan

CT is a noninvasive test that uses X-rays to make pictures of your heart. Modern CT scanners (multidetector CT, or MDCT) work very fast and detailed. They can take images of the beating heart, and show calcium and blockages in your heart arteries. Quick facts. MDCT is a very fast type of computed tomography (CT) scan.

Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

Cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (CMR), also known as cardiac MRI, is a medical imaging technology for non-invasive assessment of the function and structure of the cardiovascular system. Conventional MRI sequences are adapted for cardiac imaging by using ECG gating and high temporal resolution protocols.

Electrocardiogram (ECG)
Electrocardiogram (ECG)

Your doctor may suggest you get an electrocardiogram -- also called an EKG or ECG -- to check for signs of heart disease. It's a test that records the electrical activity of your ticker through small electrode patches that a technician attaches to the skin of your chest, arms, and legs.

Fetal Echocardiography
Fetal Echocardiography

Fetal echocardiography is a test similar to an ultrasound. This exam allows your doctor to better see the structure and function of your unborn child’s heart. It’s typically done in the second trimester, between weeks 18 to 24. The exam uses sound waves that “echo” off of the structures of the fetus’ heart.

Holter Monitoring
Holter Monitoring

A Holter monitor is a small, battery-powered medical device that measures your heart’s activity, such as rate and rhythm. Your doctor may ask you to use one if they need more information about how your heart functions than a routine electrocardiogram (EKG) can give them.

Stress Echocardiogram
Stress Echocardiogram

A stress echocardiography, also called an echocardiography stress test or stress echo, is a procedure that determines how well your heart and blood vessels are working. During a stress echocardiography, you’ll exercise on a treadmill or stationary bike while your doctor monitors your blood pressure and heart rhythm.

Three-Dimensional Echocardiography
Three-Dimensional Echocardiography

An echocardiogram, often referred to as a cardiac echo or simply an echo, is a sonogram of the heart. (It is not abbreviated as ECG, because that is an abbreviation for an electrocardiogram.) Echocardiography uses standard two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and Doppler ultrasound to create images of the heart.

Transesophageal Echocardiography
Transesophageal Echocardiography

Transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) is a test that produces pictures of your heart. TEE uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to make detailed pictures of your heart and the arteries that lead to and from it.

Transthoracic Echocardiography
Transthoracic Echocardiography

A transthoracic echocardiogram (TTE) is a procedure used to check for problems with your heart. It will also show any problems in the blood vessels near your heart. Sound waves are sent through a handheld device placed on your chest.
