Echocardiography is a medical imaging technique that uses ultrasound waves to create images of the heart. It is a non-invasive, painless procedure that can provide information about the structure and function of the heart. During an echocardiogram, a small device called a transducer is placed on the chest or abdomen and sends high-frequency sound waves into the body. These sound waves bounce off the heart and other structures in the chest and create images that can be viewed on a monitor. Echocardiography is commonly used to diagnose and monitor heart disease, evaluate heart function, and assess the effectiveness of treatments.
