Echocardiogram
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.

Dr. Gary Roach answered:

Would an (partial or full) fatrioventicular septal defect have shown up on EKG,and Doppler echocardiogram if it was present in an adult? likely?

Yes

Electrocardiogram
An atrioventricular septal defect is a serious issue which should be detected by echocardiography. It would not necessarily be detected by an EKG.

Dr. Gary Roach answered:

How does an echocardiogram function?

Doppler effect

Echocardiogram
The echocardiogram utilizes ultrasound and a principle called the doppler effect. Doppler effect means sound waves are reflected at different velocities and this information is electronically transformed to allow visualization of structural details and provide information about blood flow velocities.

Dr. Barton B. Cook answered:

I am due for an echocardiogram test in 2 days. How accurate are they in comparison to ECGs and Chest X Rays? What conditions can they detect?

Echocardiogram

Open-uri20130116-27421-in2rcw
An echocardiogram uses sound waves to produce images of your heart. It is used in the diagnosis and management of patients with any suspected or known heart diseases. It creates ultrasound images of heart structures including the heart muscle itself as well as valves. Doppler waves evaluate blood flow throughout the heart. This is additional information CXR and ECGs do not provide.

How do doctors interpret an echocardiogram?

See below

Cardiac
We look at the heart muscle, the valves, the other blood vessels. We look at the structures themselves to see if they are normal or not. Valves for instance can be thickened or have calcium in them. The heart muscle can be too thick or may not contract normally. The doppler part involves looking at the direction and speed of flow of the blood. It might tell us that a valve is leaking or blocked.

What is the definition or description of: Echocardiogram?

Echo+Cardio+Picture

Echocardiogram
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 a function of situation/reader.
