In brief: Ultrasound of heart
Generally a technologist performs the echo which is an ultrasound of the heart.
They follow a methodical procedure to take images of the heart via ultrasound from the chest.The tech also takes measurements.All of these views are put together to create a file of images and the tech puts the measurements together in a report. The doctor review the images, the report and then reports on findings.

In brief: Echo
There are two ways to do echocardiogram , one is applying probe to the chest and another placing the probe into esophagus (tee), which is done under anesthesia.
Ultrasound waves reflecting from the heart produce image of cardiac cavities and walls.
