An echocardiogram is a scan which gives a detailed view of your heart structures (chambers and valves) and that can show how well your heart is working.
A pulse of high frequency (inaudible) sound is transmitted through the skin of the chest by placing a recorder (probe) on the chest wall. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart to form an image of it.
It can help detect:
- Damage from a heart attack
- Heart failure
- Congenital heart disease
- Problems with the heart valves
The echocardiogram cost in London is £420 and is conducted at our Harley Street clinic. At the London Centre for Advanced Cardiology, we can offer same day appointments for your test.
A full report will be provided to you at the end of your echocardiogram in London, and should you like to discuss your results with a specialist, we can organise a consultation promptly.
