Doctor insights on:
An echocardiogram (also called an echo) is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart. These echoes are turned into moving pictures of your heart that can be seen ...Read more
Echocardiogram results. Mildly thick mitral valve. Tricuspid valve structurally normal but, shows trace of regurgitation. ?
The abd ultrasound show everything normal, liver normal size but minimal heterogeneity in echo texture and midly prominent veins in splenic hilum. ?
Ultrasound report: There will always be variability in looking at abdominal ultrasounds from one person to another. The detail you provided was just language used to describe subtle differences in what was being seen in your case compared to someone else's. There was nothing in that description that was alarming. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dyspnea on exertion , normal stress echo, normal pulmonary function test, abn ekg-s-t wave , o-2 sat 100 percent, normal cxr , not fat?
Out of shape?: If you have had your full cardiopulmonary system checked out and everything is 100%, then this may just be a matter of getting into shape. I would recommend restarting an exercise program very slowly and then gradually increasing. If it's not just an exercise thing, then you need to go onto the next step of testing: anemia, thyroid, blood chemistries, asthma eval, etc. Keep looking for the answer! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ekg left atrial enlargement, nonspecific t wave abnormality, echo done trace mitral regurg, tricuspid regurg. Pericardial effusion global.Is my heart ok?
More info needed: I am assuming echo is showing pericardial effusion and global? Or maybe global hypohypokinesia? Any wall motion abnormalities? Ejection fraction? Do u have any symptoms? At rest or with activities? Any other risk factors? Smoker, overweight, dm, htn, high chol, family history heart attacks, sedentary life etc. Any prior heart attacks? Stress test done. Any recent viral infection? Pericarditis? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Took an echo that showed normal lv size with concentric remodeling. Normal functioning valves. However my ecg shows potential lvh?
Congruent findings: If ECG mentions possible or potential LVH and then echocardiogram shows "concentric remodeling", probably "concentric LVH", these findings make sense. ECG is not the modality to diagnose LVH, echocardiogram is. Last if these are your findings, treat the underlying cause which is high blood pressure, to prevent long term risk of hypertensive heart disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Tsh @ 6.85, ft4 normal ultrasound: normal size, extremity heterogeneous, normal vascularity but irregular heterogeneous nodule 1.1x0.7x0.7cm. Cancer?
Not Likely: Thyroid nodules are very common. About 70% of the population has a nodule (many don't know it). About 5% of nodules are cancerous, which is why we care. If there were concerning characteristics on the ultrasound like microcalcifications, taller than wide, >1cm or increased blood flow or you have a family history or radiation exposure we like to perform an fna biopsy to check for cancer. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Son, 32, has palpitations on exertion. Ecg =left bbb, normal cholesterol level and echocardiogram normal.Awaiting CT cardio angiogram.How bad? Thanks.
Stay fit: I'm simply glad he's exercising & hope he keeps it up. Many people have a left bundle branch block for no reason -- i think it's a minor developmental variant. I'm also going to assume that these are common palpitations and there's no reason to think it's a channelopathy or v-tach. Trusting he's not overdoing caffeine. I'm betting no cause will be found and that these will not be a problem. ...Read more
Diagnosed grossly hypothyroid /hashimoto, feeling worse as weeks go by, ultrasound scan reads thyroid demonstrates a heterogenous nodular echo texture?
Need more info?: Why did you have your Thyroid checked in the first place? We advise people not to do a test unless it is clearly indicated, i.e you are looking for a cause for a symptom or medical complaint. otherwise we end up finding things(like your report) which may not matter, yet provoke much unnecessary anxiety. Your Thyroid gland is fine....it is normal report. Your doctor should have already told you so. ...Read more
ECHO: Normal Left ventricular size + wall thickness and wall motion, Normal biventricular systolic function, Mild MVP w/ trace regurgitation, EF 67%, RV systolic pressure 16mmHg, mild heart murmur. No symptoms. Help! Is this normal?
MVP: Your echocardiogram is not perfectly normal as it shows mild mitral valve prolapse. All other parameters are normal. MVP is very common and very often causes no problems. Nevertheless I recommend periodic follow-up by a cardiologist as the mvp can worsen, cause atrial arrhythmias and atypical chest discomfort. Very often a click can be heard on stethoscope examination of the heart. ...Read more
Pvcs, ECHO results shows: good LV and RV systolic function, sinus rhythm, but it shows I have mild mitral regurgitation?? Is that a Normal, I'm 23.
Depends: depends on how mild it is. Trivial or even mild MR is frequently seen in an echo and usually is a benign finding if no other abnormalities rare present. Would be curious to know what prompted ur getting an echo. Your best bet is to discuss the finding with your doctor. It is difficult for me to answer your question more completely without talking to you, examining u and seeing your echo myself. ...Read more
The abd ultras show everything normal, liver normal size but minimal heterogeneity in echo texture and a few prominent blood vessels in splenic hives?
Probably normal: Ultrasound findings. Ask the doctor who ordered the test to review the ultrasound results with you in relation to your medical history, physical exam ; blood tests. ...Read more
Cardiologist says very reassuringEcho?
Trans V gradient 8mmHg LV Dimensionally Normal preserved Systolic Doppler Mild LV Diastolic dysfunction. Agree?
Echocardiogram: The findings are not normal but have to be judged in context of your mitral valve repair. The abnormalities described are not hemodynamically significant and won't impact your performance status. I can understand why your cardiologist is reassured by your echocardiogram. ...Read more
Ct angio 64 slice, stress echo, 3d echo, cardiac MRI/MRA.. None of these fan detect soft plaque correct? What non invasive test can?
Echo 2 mos ago, results = LA dilated, mild functional mr and trivial functional tr.holter result sinus rhythm, PVC seen 32.7%. Now discomfort jawline?
See your doctor: To assess whether the pain in your jaw line is related to your heart you will need a stress test. This is especially the case if that jaw discomfit occurs with exertion. The echo cardio gram will not necessarily give you information about your arteries, especially if these new symptoms. Good luck to you! ...Read more
Echo: Ejection >55%, transmitral doppler suggest pseudonormalization. No wall abnorm. No stenosis seen. Mild mitral annular calc. Need clarification.
Stiff heart: Pseudonormalization refers to a pattern of flow across the mitral valve as the left ventricle fills with blood when the left ventricle is "stiff" and does not relax properly. As the term suggests it appears normal but isnt when there is elevation of pressure in the left atrium. This is known as diastolic dysfunction and commonly seen in hypertension. Especially when poorly controlled. ...Read more
Sinus tachycardia~t wave abnormality, consider inferior ischemia~abnormal ecg~when compared with ECG of 10-aug-2013 11:38, ~questionable change in qrs?
Non-specific: You need a stress test. It appears that you've had one. If it's been >1 year, it should be repeated now and done with an imaging modality such as echo or nuclear perfusion imaging. A resting ekg is a notoriously inaccurate test, especially in middle-aged women. (that's not sexism, it's science). There are many (most) false positives. ...Read more
