Diagnostic Ultrasound and Echocardiographic

Ultrasound or Sonography uses sound waves to detect abnormalities in many parts the body. Internal organs and structures reflect the sound waves. Special instruments create an image of the desired area then interpret the reflections. Echocardiographic testing uses sound waves to create an image of the heart. This non-invasive test is particularly useful in detecting and managing heart disease and is one of the standard tools applied by cardiologists.
