In brief: Echo, cath

Echocardiogram is the most common test for mitral stenosis, as the structure and function of the valve can be assessed visually.
Cxr can give information regarding chamber size and valve calcification. Ekg and holter monitor can reveal atrial fibrilation, a common arrhythmia associated with mitral stenosis. Heart cath would reveal the hemodynamics and the need for surgical intervention.
