What Do The Yellow Colors Mean On An Echocardiogram
I had a fetal echocardiogram and the image on the screen showed a lot of yellow, red, blue. What does that mean?
Ultrasound of heart: An echocardiogram is a type of ultrasound of the heart. Just like an ultrasound of a pregnant woman shows a real-time picture of the fetus, an echocardiogram shows a real-time picture of the heart. An echocardiogram can show if heart valves are abnormal, if the heart is thickened or dilated, how well the heart can pump, if there are any holes in the heart walls, and other heart problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My echocardiogram report says LVEF "reasonable to good" what does this mean Ejection fraction wise? 30% 40% 50% 60%?
Echocardiogram: "reasonable to good" is that reader's usage and you'd have to ask that reader to be sure what was meant. In my view 50-55% is reasonable to good. ...Read more
Very normal: Teich is the abbreviation of Teicholz method; scientist who came up with calculation using US to estimate left ventricle ejection fraction. Any number above 55% is typically considered normal. So this basically means your main pumping chamber in the heart is functioning normally with effective forward flow. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Incomplete RBBB can be a normal variant in 15% of the adult population and as such is a benign finding on ECG, not echocardiogram. It basically means that the message from atria to ventricle traverses just a few msec slower down the right branch of the atrio-ventricular conduction system, than the left fork. Nothing to worry about. ...Read more
On my echocardiogram they said the bubbles showed up on other side after 7 beats. What does this mean?
Bubble study: We do bubble studies to see if there is abnormal right to left flow in the heart. Ask the lab performing and interpreting the study if that's what they mean by their wording. ...Read more
Hi, just wondering what ' high volocity jet across the outflow tract' means on a echocardiogram. Thank you.
Echo: High velocity flow across an outflow tract is to be expected. If there is outflow obstruction, then the flow velocity will be even higher. The high velocity flow statement needs more information to interpret. ...Read more
Normal.: Ef >65% is generally reported as normal. ...Read more
Perfect echocardiogram, 24h ecg showed some ST Sagging, no further tests recommended, what does this mean?
Non-invasive CV eval: Non-specific EKG changes during stress testing are common. Stress imaging (ECHO, nuclear or MRI) carries more weight as it allows the doctor to assess the flow of blood into different parts of the heart muscle and also assesses the 'Ejection Fraction', which is a measure of the strength of heart contractions, above 55% being normal. Coronary calcium scores assess heart artery blockage risk. ...Read more
What does a higher than normal range ivsd, lvpwd and lvpws means in an heart echocardiogram? What does an fs% lower than normal mean too? Mine at 28%
I was diagnosed with bilateral atrial enlargement and preserved left ventrical systolic function on my recent echocardiogram. What does all this mean?
Biatrial enlargement: is an increase in the size of both the upper two chambers of the heart--the right and left atria. The preserved left ventricular systolic function means the heart muscle itself is pumping normally. Atrial enlargement can be due to a problem with the heart valves, or chronic lung disease on the right, systemic hypertension on the left. It requires an expert cardiology evaluation to clarify. ...Read more
LookItUp, Use Google: Like all areas of human activity, humans like simplicity, unique to each area, very much including the medical disease system, thus many acronyms. The good news, you are paying attention and asking question as the person primarily in charge of all your medial/life decisions. Likely TAPSE is: Tricuspid Annular Plane Systolic Excursion, a crude indicator of ventricular diastolic & systolic function. ...Read more
My echocardiogram said I have anterior leaflet thickening of the mitral valve--what does that mean?
Incidental finding: 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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
