Would an echo show blockages in arteries? Also would minor regurgitation of 3 separate valves be cause for concern ?

Cardiologist: Echo will not show blockages in coronary arteries. Minor regurgitation in multiple valves needs to be followed regularly by serial echoes and cardiologist exam and recommendations

No: No, it can't. In fact with mild mitral regurgitation you may be able to go longer before a repeat echo.
