What is an echocardiogram?

An echocardiogram, or also known as an echo, is an ultrasound of your heart. An echo is done to check on the valves or chambers in your heart. If you have had chest pain or shortness of breath, your doctor may order an echo to check on your heart’s health.

Why is it important to my health?

Your doctor may order an echocardiogram to:
• Look for heart disease
• Monitor heart valve disease over time
• See how well medical or surgical treatments are working

What to expect:

An echocardiogram is an ultrasound of the heart. This exam is used to evaluate the size, function and valves of the heart.

How to prepare:

No special preparations are required for this exam. To get directions to our El Paso location or for questions, feel free to contact us!

What is Strain Imaging and why is it used with an Echocardiogram?

Our office is the only Ultrasound office in El Paso offering Strain Imaging.

What is Strain Imaging?

Strain Imaging is a special tissue tracking technology that is used to evaluate subtle changes in the function of the myocardium, which is the muscular tissue of the heart. Strain imaging is useful in the evaluation of cardiac function for cardiotoxicity, damage to the heart caused by cancer drugs and treatment, in patients receiving potentially cardiotoxic chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Strain imaging is also useful in evaluating cardiomyopathies or heart failure.
