Echocardiography is a test that uses sound waves to produce live images of your heart. This test allows your doctor to monitor how your heart and its valves are functioning without involving ionizing radiation.
The images can help them spot
Narrowing, degeneration, thickening and calcification of the valves
Blood clots in the heart
Fluid in the sac around the heart
Problems with the aorta, which is the main artery connected to the heart
