Ultrasound of heart (echocardiography)

The echocardiography or the ultrasound of the heart is the safe and precise examination, allowing the doctor to study the condition of the heart muscle. By using the ultrasound, the doctor can observe the heart functioning on a real time basis: assess the thickness of the walls, condition of the valves, blood flow velocity etc.

WHEN IS ULTRASOUND OF HEART NEEDED?

In most cases, the echocardiography is ordered by the cardiologist; however, you can undergo the examination independently, if you have:

  • pain in the heart area;
  • rapid heartbeat;
  • feeling of heartbeat interruptions;
  • shortness of breath;
  • problems with blood pressure;
  • dizziness and loss of consciousness;
  • numbness of arms and legs;
  • skin lividity;
  • general weakness.

By using the ultrasound of the heart, the cardiologist can quickly and precisely exclude heart defects, myocarditis, heart failure, aneurisms, ischemic heart disease, heartbeat arrhythmia etc. In addition, the ultrasound of the heart is used for assessing the results of performed heart surgeries.

 

The conclusion, received after the examination, contains many indicators, the independent studying of which will not give any understanding of the essence of the problem. That is why if you even made appointment for examination, it is better to consult the doctor as per results of echocardiography. During the visit, the cardiologist will listen to your complaints, study the examination data, explain its results to you, will say if there are any reasons for worrying.

WHAT DOES ULTRASOUND OF HEART SHOW?

The echocardiography is mixed with the electrocardiogram (ECG), which registers the electrical fields, coming from the heart, frequency and regularity of its contractions.

 

The ultrasound of the heart allows the doctor to study the heart condition in detail as per more parameters than ECG. During the echocardiography, the doctor assesses:

  • size of the heart;
  • volume of the atriums and ventricles;
  • heart rate;
  • thickness of the wall of the heart;
  • main vessels;
  • myocardia and pericardia;
  • mitral valve etc.

In addition, the echocardiography allows detecting the clots, cicatrices and cholesterol plaques.

19-02-2018 Дважды проходила обследование УЗИ у доктора Нестеренко Е.Ю. и оба раза очень довольна и приемом, и диагностикой. Диагноз поставлен правильно, лечение оказано своевременно. Доктор очень приятный в общении. Через год обязательно приеду на плановый осмотр.
15-12-2014 В клинике Oxford Medical мы оказались впервые. Была необходимость проведения УЗД внутренних органов. Обслуживание было высококачественным. Мы получили все необходимые рекомендации. Хотим продолжить наблюдение в этой клинике. Более того, будем рекомендовать её нашим знакомым. Здесь можно провести комплексное обследование всего организма. Причём быстро и качественно.С уважением, Тамара Григорьевна
24-05-2013 Я считаю так: когда комфортно, тогда и хорошо. В клинике «Оксфорд Медикал» мне всегда комфортно. Дальше додумайте сами.
24-05-2013 Клиника оставляет приятное впечатление. Зная, как работает отечественная система здравоохранения, был приятно удивлен. Конечно, клиника веропейского образца. Но люди-то наши работают. И тем не менее, уровню соответствую. Был приятно удивлен, когда, как говорится, «без сучка и задоринки» был принят по срочной записи в тот же день. В поликлинике получил плохие анализы и не решился довериться нашим врачам. Обратился в Оксфорд Медикал. Они провели диагностику, сделали узи и оно показало серьезную проблему с почками. Теперь вот определяемся с лечением. Пока все внушает доверие, останусь тут.
