In brief: Stethoscope & echo
Mitral stenosis can be diagnosed by a characteristic murmur heard with a stethoscope.
This can be confirmed by an echocardiogram (an ultrasound exam) which can help assess the severity of the narrowing of the valve.

In brief: Echocardiogram
If a physician hears a specific heart sound, he/ she can order an ultrasound of the heart (echocardiogram) which will look at the valves and can detect the mitral stenosis.
