Our machines are capable of performing 2D echocardiograms and Echocardiograms with Doppler. These procedures are done by Board-certified Cardiologists and Sonologists and are assisted by our well-trained imaging staff. Our machines undergo periodic preventive maintenance to ensure their optimum performance.
A 2-D (or two-dimensional) echocardiogram is capable of displaying a cross-sectional "slice" of the beating heart, including the chambers, valves and the major blood vessels that exit from the left and right ventricle.
A Doppler echocardiogram measures the speed and direction of the blood flow within the heart. It screens the four valves for leaks and other abnormalities.
