Echocardiogram is a medical imaging technique that allows the study of the anatomy and the functioning of the heart using ultrasounds. Echocardiography is the fundamental method used to visualize the shape and size of the heart chambers and the structural integrity (muscular walls and cardiac valves).

Echocardiogram is a non-invasive and painless exam, which can be performed at any age and repeated as necessary. This exam takes about 30 minutes.

Echocardiogram uses two modes: one-dimensional view (to measure the size of the main structures of the heart) and two-dimensional view (to see the heart as well as its movements in 2D).

Echocardiogram is associated with cardiac Doppler allowing the analysis of blood flow within the heart and the circulation of blood in the large vessels (aorta, vena cava, pulmonary arteries and veins).
