Many : Many things can alter some aspects of echocardiogram result including hemodynamic status, cardiac ischemia, and drugs to name a few but there are many more. Understand that the echocardiogram result is a picture of the heart function/structure at a given time, namely at the time the test is conducted. Although there is the capability to acquire 3 d images now, mostly the images are 2 dimensional and can capture misleading results if a thorough exam is not performed to get a complete picture. There are no "false" results per se just perhaps incomplete and at one point in time which may change at another time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
On echocardiogram results it says normal echo. But i saw lvpw 0.7 and ivs 0.8. Is the ratio ok for these? 25 yr female..
Echo: You were probably referred for an echo upon your physician hearing the murmur - if echo demonstrates normal cardiac structure and function, the murmur is what we refer to as an "innocent murmur" - this means it is being caused just by hearing the normal sound of blood going through the heart. Discuss your concerns/questions with your cardiologist. ...Read more

For palpitations, If my echocardiogram results were normal, can I completely rule out mitral valve diseases?
I am 27 and have just been diagnosed with trivial mitral regurgitation but no mention of mvp on my echocardiogram results. Is this likely progress?
Don't worry: Trivial mitral regurgitation is just that - trivial. Do not worry too much about this very common finding. Just file the knowledge away, and if you ever have another echo (which you just might never need) you and your doctor can see if there has been any change. In all likelihood there won't be. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had a echocardiogram. results say mitral valve demonstrates sclerosis of the leaflets and trace regurgitation. And trace tricuspid regurgitation.
Findings. Symptoms?: These are findings on the echocardiogram in the view of the Cardiologist who was looking at the pictures. The real question is why the echocardiogram was ordered to begin with. Were you having symptoms? What problem was the test trying to identify? Generally, trace valve regurgitation is "physiologic" - that is, common & symptom-less. Sclerosis means thickening - so the mitral valve could be stiff ...Read more

Inspite of normal echo their blood test called naturetic peptides are elevated suggesting their heart is in stress. ...Read more
