What is a private echocardiogram?

A private echocardiogram – also known as an echo or heart scan – uses sound waves to build up a detailed picture of your heart. It is similar an ultrasound scan used in pregnancy, but with a special probe related to the heart, meeting the latest, highest standards. 


It is safe and provides a more accurate picture of your heart than ECGs.


The test is painless and without side effects. It does not use radioactivity.


Why do I need an echocardiogram?

Do you suffer from breathlessness, palpitations, atrial fibrillation, chest pain or a valve problem? An echocardiogram gives your Doctor, in this case your cardiologist, information about how well the heart pumps and whether your heart valves are working properly.


What does an echocardiogram involve?

In order to scan your heart, you will be taken into a darkened room. The person performing the cardiac  test is called a Sonographer, who will be an Accredited Expert in Echocardiogram.


You will be asked by the heart specialist to undress to the waist and put on a gown that should be left open on the front. You will also be asked to lie on a couch on your left hand side (in order to bring your heart closer to your chest). If you require a chaperone, you may bring a friend or relative. Alternatively, the Clinic may provide a chaperone at your request.


An ultrasound probe covered by a small amount of gel is placed gently on the centre of your chest and will be moved to different positions – around the Left side of your Chest. This provides images of your heart from a number of different angles which are then recorded.


During the echocardiogram you will hear sounds coming from the machine, which represent blood flow through the heart.


The echocardiogram will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete.  If abnormal pathology is detected, additional views and measurements can increase the time needed.


Are there any special precautions that I need to take before the echocardiogram?

No. You can take all your medication as normal. You can eat and drink as normal.


At the end of your echocardiogram

Once the echocardiogram is complete, you can get dressed and leave. There are no limitations to what you can do after the heart scan. For example, you may drive.
