Echocardiogram Fetal Limited
Adult and fetal: A fetal "echo" means a fetal echocardiogram. This is a detailed ultrasound of the fetus' heart, and it is done through the mother's abdomen. An adult can have an echocardiogram as well. It is either done through the chest wall, or with a special transducer that goes down the adult's esophagus ("transesophageal") to get closer pictures of the person's heart. ...Read more
Babies tell us a lot: Monitoring a fetus by fetal hr, ultrasound or the expectant woman's perception of activity is important. No one test can tell us everything we need to know, but together they can tell us which babies might be better off delivered. If a baby is near term and the testing is worrisome then obstetric specialists or subspecialists might deliver. But conditions can change. Plus every case is different. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is a cardiac doppler echo/ tte accurate if performed correctly for finding physical malformations that cause murmur?
High accuracy: For investigation of the possible causes of a heart murmur, a properly performed transthoracic echocardiogram will have high accuracy as long as the imaging windows are good. If the echocardiogram is normal and the quality of images obtained is good, no further investigation is required. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Echocardiography report, left ventricle, prominent septal bulge 1.2cm without tract obstruction, also resting wall motion abnormalities were present, spectral doppler shows impaired lv diastolic filli?
Complicated : To understand a report one needs to talk with one's physician. Resting wall motion abnormalities means areas of the heart are damaged and not contracting or squeezing normally. That is the heart "walls" are not moving correctly. Sometimes this can cause the wall inside the heart that separates the right and left side to "bulge". Impaired filling means the heart does not "relax" normally. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Echocardiogram normal except for minimal mitral regurgitation. Ejection Fraction 64. EKG/X-rays normal. is any treatment or more testing needed?
Sounds pretty normal: but not knowing what your symptoms are (if any) and why the tests were ordered in the first place makes it impossible to advise about additional testing being necessary. Consider a consultation so that all of the clinical information can be assessed or discuss this with your health care provider. ...Read more
Echocardiogram: evidence of left ventricular diastolic relaxation abnormality. Mildly decreased systolic function. Wall motion abnormalities. Means?
Ultrasound showed a gestational sac of 9 wks. Fetal pole not clearly visualized corresponding to 8wks 3 days, unable to detect fetal heart motion. ?
Is Cardiac MRI, Cardiac CT, or ECHO... better for diagnosing structural heart diseases such as arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia?
Suspected problems: If you ob/gyn doctor or maternal fetal medicine specialist recommend a fetal echocardiogram, it is usually because they suspect some sort of malformation in the fetuses heart, lungs, etc. It may be because they notice something on a prior ultrasound, or they just want to be safe/cautious if you are at a higher risk of having a baby with a congenital heart problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How accurate is 2D Echocardiogram likelyhood of NonSustained VT in" Normal structure heart" Mitral Valve Repair few yrs on With excellent Echo result?
There is single active intrauterine fetus with Breech presentation. Fetal body movement and cardiac activity are present.
Breech: This means your baby is in the uterus, butt first, the baby is alive and doing well. The only issue here is, if you are near your due date and the baby is breech (butt first), you will likely need a cesarean section unless you opt for an version, a procedure to flip the baby from butt to head first, then you can deliver vaginally. If you are early on the baby changes position all the time. ...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
