Echocardiography (or Echo) is another name for Non-Invasive Cardiovascular Sonography (NICVS), a diagnostic technique used to image or visualize the heart and blood vessels. It is a powerful yet authentic tool that has the ability to provide a wealth of information regarding the human heart and also peripheral blood vessels. Using a highly specialized scanner known as a transducer (or probe), which is connected to the echo machine, echocardiography (a cardiac ultrasound) is carried out. The transducer transmits high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) into the human body after attaching to the chest’s skin. The heart and blood vessels reflect these ultrasound waves back to the transducer. The echo machine’s screen displays the images created from the sound waves from the transducer. With the assistance of these cardiovascular images, a variety of heart and blood vessel diseases can be able to diagnose and effectively treat. As a result, cardiovascular sonography has grown to be the most popular imaging technique in modern medicine and will continue to expand. Echocardiography program provides a comprehensive explanation of how Non-Invasive Cardiovascular Sonography works.
