An echocardiogram (echo) is a graphic outline of the heart’s movement. A procedure that uses high-energy sound waves (ultrasound) to look at tissues and organs inside the chest. Echocardiograms also provide highly accurate information on heart valve function. They can be used to identify leaky or tight heart valves.
An electrocardiogram (ECG) records the electrical signals in the heart. It’s a common and painless test used to quickly detect heart problems and monitor the heart’s health.
