What is the yellow color mean on my echocardiogram?

Blood direction

Echocardiogram
Colors on echocardiography indicate blood direction. Red indicates flow towards the transducer, and blue indicates flow away from the transducer. Yellow (and green) idicate acceleration or turbulent flow.

I had a fetal echocardiogram and the image on the screen showed a lot of yellow, red, blue. what does that mean?

Not much

Echocardiogram
You probably saw Doppler signals - images of how sounds travel through the tissue as seen from the ultrasound probe. As long as the echocardiogram was OK, no need to worry about colors.

My EF number was 78%, higher than standard range. What does this mean? On Echocardiogram.

Not Much

Echocardiogram
The EF measurements on an echo can sometimes be a little off. As long as the number isn't low (less than 50%) you're ok. When the measurement comes back at some number like 78%, it generally only means the heart function is normal.

Ekg and a echocardiogram and the test results were normal. does this mean my heart is normal?

Not necessarily

Cardiovascular_diseases
These tests can only pick up so many of the abnormalities. It is possible that you have narrowing of the coronary arteries but the blockage is not severe enough to show up in these tests. It would be prudent to discuss the matter with your doctor to see what are the results of other tests, including lab tests and what, if any life style changes or medications may be needed.

Dr. Ajay Baddi answered:

My echocardiogram said I have anterior leaflet thickening of the mitral valve--what does that mean?

Incidental finding

Echocardiogram
Anterior leaflet thickening is not an uncommon finding and is usually seen incidentally. It is of little clinical significance if it is not associated with more than mild regurgitation or "leakage" of the mitral valve, restriction in opening of the valve, or other structural heart disease. So essentially, if the rest of the echo is normal probably nothing to worry about.
