How Many Echo Cardiography Tests Done By Cardiologistsvs Tech
Pretty much all of: Them, with few exceptions.Get a more detailed answer ›
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
What heart tests are done before a decision for a heart cath .Ive had several . EKG, stressecho, Ct score, lexiscan, echo, 21 day monitor. All normal?
Accurate: The test is accurate and reproducible but highly dependent on effort and technique. The results are an assessment of lung function. It can detect asthma, emphysema, COPD, and some other airway conditions. It cannot detect pneumonias, tumors or pulmonary emboli or vascular conditions. As always the results need to be interpreted in the context of clinical findings. ...Read more
Bloodwork, xray, ekg, echo, stress test, 24hr holter. Had all these tests done and only benign arrhythmia. Does anxiety sound right? Or possible chd?
Not CHD: Missing information is what symptom prompted this extensive work-up in the first place. Assuming palpitations was the reason, the first thing to do is to better define this. Keep a log. Take your pulse every time. Record how fast, how often, how long it lasts and what happens when it stops (sudden or slows down). The answers to these questions will provide more information to start than the tests. ...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
Many tests ordered by cardiologist.He found "atrial tachycardia" on 48 hr holter during symptoms.All other tests good. What does this really mean?
Abn heart rhythm: Paroxysmal atrial tachycardia is an abnormal heart rhythm propagated by a variety of mechanisms. The HR typically is 170-240 but exceptions occur. It usually causes palpitations and, if prolonged, may cause shortness of breath and/or dizziness. The albuterol you take can precipitate it. It can occur in otherwise normal hearts. Meds or ablation can prevent it. ...Read more
Transthoracic echocardiogram, chest x ray, renal sonogram, lots of blood work by hematologist, lupus test found nothing after splenic infarct. More test?
M37.Have low HDL/high TriG.Did tests, results ok.ABI, EKG, Chest XRay, UltraSound Carotid+whole abdomen,Echo Treadmill Stress. repeat tests how often?
Family history?: much of this hinges I feel on your family history. If you have parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or siblings with coronary artery disease under the age of 55 then I repeat testing in 5 years, otherwise probably in 10 years. There is no consensus on this: therefore this is my own opinion as interventional cardiologist. ...Read more
Transthoracic echocardiogram, chest x ray, renal sonogram, lots of blood work by hematologist, lupus test found nothing after splenic infarct. Am i ok?
Echocardiogram, cardiac stress test, Coronary CTA, chest X-Ray... Do these tests rule out structural heart disease? What can cause NSVT if all normal?
Cardiac MRI, stress echo, 3d echo and blood test CRP all done at the mayo clinic AZ would these 3 rule out a blocked artery/CAD? If normal?
Swallow tube: The transducer, which is like a camera, is passed through your mouth down into the esphagus and positioned at the back of the heart. Because the back of the heart rests agains the esophagus, there is less in the way so that the images are much clearer than if they are taken through the chest wall. The patinet is sedated just as if we were looking into the stomach or esophagus. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How many cardiac cta (computed tomography angiogram) procedures are performed annually in small hospitals?
Is nuclear stress testing or echo more accurate for calculating ejection fraction? Nuclear says 67 percent echo says 48.
Why are the following tests done preoperatively for open heart surgery? Echo...chest X-ray.....pfts.....and urinalysis?
Normal ekgs..Normal echo..Normal stress test..Normal chest xray and blood work good..Is a CT coronary angiogram needed? Or all these tests sufficient?
Probably sufficient: I assume that these tests were done for evaluation of chest pain. Unless you have extreme risk factors, the likelihood of chest pain being related to coronary artery disease in a 28 year old is very low. The key to determining the cause of your chest pain is a good history by an expert clinician, supported by a full examination. There are many non-cardiac causes of chest pain. ...Read more
