2d Echocardiogram With Doppler
Echo refers to reflections of sound waves, typically 0.5-10mhz, sent through a body structure, all variants of water density. Cardio refers to heart. Gram refers to a picture or graphical representation of the data. A form of us, these help see certain aspects of our hearts behavior/function, real-time in motion picture video. Quality & usefulness varies widely as ...Read more
Yes: Routine transthoracic 2decho uses colour-doppler.Get a more detailed answer ›
I recently had a doppler echocardiogram. How do I know if it was a pulsed wave or continuous wave? Or would they use both?
Both: Both pulse and continuous wave doppler are used during a study. ...Read more
Would an (partial or full) fatrioventicular septal defect have shown up on ekg, and doppler echocardiogram if it was present in an adult? Likely?
On echocardiogram spectral doppler shows pseudonormal (moderate) of left ventricular diastolic. Dangerous? I do have pericardial effusion.
The context matters.: pseudo-normal diastolic function also known as stage 2 diastolic dysfunction implies that the heart muscle is stiff and although it squeezes with adequate force, it does not relax efficiently and quickly to accommodate filling of the heart. It will result in increased pressure inside the chambers of the heart which can cause a pericardial effusion. You need to see your doctor to address this problem ...Read more
Does the mitral and tricuspid regurgitation that is caused my a atrioventicular septal defect show up on doppler echocardiogram reliably?
I recently underwent a echocardiogram what does these results mean spectral doppler velocity of mitral valve inflow abnormal with reversal of the e and a wave amplitude ratio tissue doppler velocity of mitral valve annulus abnormal with reversal of the
Need more infomation: This is a method of looking at function during the part of the heart cycle know as diastole (when the ventricle relaxes). The information provided needs to be taken in context with other information such as pulmonary venous inflow to detemine whether there is diastolic dysfunction. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had doppler echocardiogram. Report says "mild aortic insufficiency andtrace tricuspid insufficiency". Doc says this is normal findings. Any worries?
Probably: For a woman of 49 years old, your results are probably not "clinically" significant . This means that although your results are not entirely normal, they (the mild aortic and trace tricuspid insufficiency) do not contribute to any of your symptoms in a significant way. ...Read more
Cardiac echo is a somewhat redundant term for "echocardiogram." during this painless procedure, harmless sound waves are passed into the chest and reflected back, providing a detailed image of the heart, measures of the flow of blood within it, and information about certain structures which surround ...Read more
