In brief: Totally different
Those are completely different tests.
An echocardiogram is an ultrasound test of the heart in which high frequency sound waves are used to visualize the anatomy and motion of the heart. An electrocardiogram (ekg) is used to examine the electrical activity of the heart. Each test gives different information. Together, they can help reach a diagnosis.
