Ultrasound: Conventionally, "heart defects" refers to an abnormality in the heart that is congenital, or present at birth. Almost all congenital heart defects can be diagnosed successfully by echocardiography (heart ultrasound) particularly if the ultrasound lab and interpreting cardiologist have experience in congenital heart disease (pediatric cardiologist.).
