Need to see if anything wrong with my heart so what's a heart ultrasound?

Echocardiogram. A heart ultrasound or echocardiogram is a study thereby the heart's anatomy is assessed. It also contributes to the assessment of heart's function (contractility). It usually reveals structural problems such as valvular disease, muscular abnormalities (heart failure) and presence of other anatomical diseases (tumors, fluid collections, narrowing or "holes" etc.).
