In brief: Yes
Tricuspid regurgitation is a systolic murmur that is usually not well heard on physical exam (unless it is of a severe degree).
An echocardiogram is an ultrasound which allows cardiologist to view your heart structures and function. It will help determine both the degree of tricuspid regurgitation and possibly why. Of note, many people have a mild degree of physiologic tr (normal).
