If I had a heart ultrasound and ECG would they show many major problems?

Data. The combination of ECG and cardiac ultrasound would give evidence for state of cardiac rhythm and cardiac anatomy and function. It is a combination of many of the things we want to know about someones heart.
Might or might not. Heart ultrasound (echocardiogram) looks primarily at the anatomy of the heart and its function. It may detect valve problems, contractility issues or other structural abnormalities. It may not be able to detect any arrhythmias (except for possible atrial fibrilation) or tell you about presence of coronary artery disease. Ecg on the other hand may not be able to give you ample info on the anatomy.

Normal ekg, chest xray and d dimer. Also had heart ultrasound come back normal about a year ago. Does this mean I have a slim chance of a heart attack?

Loaded questions. Honestly your normal results from last year are kind of like a snapshot. We need a panoramic picture - are you a healthy weight? Do you exercise regularly? Do you smoke? Do you eat a healthy diet? What is your family history in regards to cardiac disease (genetics)? What is your cholesterol panel? All I can say about your tests is that one year ago you had a normal EKG/chest X-ray/ECHO/d-dimer. Read more...

Can heart ultrasound show heart damage?

A cardiac echo. Or u/s is a dynamic study of heart function: wall motion, chamber filling and emptying, and valve motions. It can show damaged wall. It does nothing to detect coronary vessels. It also can find pericardial fluid. Read more...
Only gross damage. A cardiac ultrasound (echocardiogram) will show the size and function of the heart chambers and valves as well as the great vessels entering and exiting the heart. While the echocardiogram will detect wall motion abnormalities it will not detect small areas of damage or plaque build up in the coronary arteries (heart disease). Read more...

I feel 6-7 extrasystols daily. Some during swim or sauna, few in rest. My cardio CT shows healthy heart. Ultrasound showed mitralis prolapsus. I regularly sport. Is this serious? Need medication?

Probably not serious. Extrasystolic beats, premature atrial or ventricular contractions are beats that occur before the regular 'sinus' beats; since every heart muscles has the ability to cause a heart contraction, these are not uncommon; 7/day are very few; can occur with mitral valve prolapse, caffeine, smoking...If any question, next should do a stress test to assess if there could be any underlying heart problem.

Would the heart ultrasound and angiogram CT scan I had show if I had coroided artery disease. Blocked heart valves or structural abnormalities?

Partly yes. An echocardiogram would not show carotid or coronary arteries directly; it would show the status of your valves and help rule out structural abnormalities. A ct angiogram could show coronary artery status but might not image high enough to show the carotid arteries. Read more...
No . Need formal carotid ultrasound or cta, to correctly evaluate these vessels. See radiologyinfo.Org. Read more...
