Ask your Doctor: Echocardiogram is an ultrasound exam of your heart. it looks at the heart valves, heart muscles, blood vessels, and how they function. The exam is used when the doctor things there may be a problem with your heart muscle, valves, or blood vessels. There are too many indications to list, but your doctor or a cardiologist can determine if you should get one.
