Preparation for the 2D echo
A 3-D echocardiogram creates a three-dimensional image of your heart using either the transoesophageal or transthoracic route. Multiple images are taken from different angles. Echocardiography is performed in children to diagnose or rule out heart disease.
Benefits of 3D echo
Importance of this test
An echocardiogram test can be performed to evaluate signs and symptoms of heart disease such as:
Atherosclerosis – A gradual obstruction of the arteries by fatty materials or other substances in the bloodstream over a period of years that causes an abnormality of the wall motion or pumping of the heart.
Cardiomyopathy – Thickening or weakening of the heart muscle causes enlargement of the heart.
Congenital heart disease – Heart structural defects that affect the foetus during its development, including a ventricular septal defect (hole in the center of the heart).
Congestive heart failure – Heart failure occurs when the heart muscle has weakened to the point that it cannot pump blood efficiently, causing fluid to accumulate in the blood vessels and lungs, and swelling in the feet, ankles, and other parts of the body.
Valvular heart disease – An abnormality in the flow of blood within the heart due to a malfunction of one or more of the heart valves.
Cardiac tumour – A tumour that may develop on the outer surface of the heart, in one or more chambers of the heart (intravaginal), or within the muscular tissue of the heart (myocardium).
Pericarditis- Inflammation, infection, or swelling of the sac surrounding the heart.
At Dr.Muthus Multispeciality Hospital, we are equipped with world-class technology to perform echocardiogram tests in Coimbatore and other centres with the aim to provide excellent care and services to the patients, ensuring the best possible outcomes.
3D echo has advantages over 2D echo. 3D echo provides images from different angles and planes and better visulisation of heart structures when compared to 2D.
It generally takes 30 to 60 minutes to perform a 2D Echo test. The duration could be extended if the patient has health issues.
Echocardiogram uses sound waves to evaluate the function of the heart and there is no use of radiation. Hence, it is considered to be safe even for pregnant women. CARE Hospitals has taken extra safety measures and follows all protocols to keep you safe during the Echocardiogram Test. You are welcome to make an appointment before your visit. In order to make your checkup experience as pleasant and safe as possible, our staff will assist you at every step.
The 2D echo test provides information to your doctor about how your heart functions, diagnose any abnormalities and aids in treatment planning if diagnosed with heart disease.
