In brief: Perform cardiac echo
An echocardiographic technician performs cardiac ultrasound (echocardiogram).
This can be performed either in a hospital or in an office. The study takes 20-30 minutes and is noninvasive.

In brief: Performs the exam
The echocardiogram technician actually performs the echocardiographic exam. Most centers have a routine "complete" examination, but sometimes very specific procedures are necessary or requested by the physician.
