A Wellington Echocardiogram is one of many top quality, reliable exams that we give at our medical facility at Medical Diagnostic Scans. Dr. Pevsner, and his board certified staff administer all of the examinations. About an Echocardiogram: An image is taken of the heart using an ultrasound or sonar. This is done by placing the probe over the heart, which allows the technician to see both the size and shape of heart. The heart is also seen moving throughout the examination. An ultrasound uses high-frequency sounds during the scan, but we are not able to hear it. Special equipment, on the other hand, is able to detect the sound waves. This allows us to see if your heart has any blocked valves, which would then alert us about the possibility of a heart attach in the near future.
A Wellington Echocardiogram is a painless and quick procedure that takes approximately 20-40 minutes in all. This particular test gives a detailed analysis of the blood flow in the valves and heart. We can also see the pressures in the heart and how well your heart contracts and moves. Our board certified staff, under the supervision of Dr. Pevsner, has the right training necessary to provide you with an adequate diagnosis. Using our technologically advanced equipment, we are able to properly test you. We are determined to help you get the assistance you need to become healthier. We will work with your physician to determine the best course of action. Call us today to speak to our dedicated staff.
