Introduction of section / unit:
The echocardiography department of Omid Hospital uses an echocardiogram to diagnose, manage and follow up patients with any suspected or known heart disease.
Echocardiography, also called cardiac echocardiography or echocardiography, is a non-invasive method that uses sound waves to image the internal structure of the heart and is actually considered the standard for diagnosing heart disease.
This method uses standard two-dimensional, three-dimensional and Doppler ultrasound to create images of the heart.
Services and specialized activities of the department / unit:
Echocardiography is usually one of the most widely used diagnostic methods in cardiovascular patients. Echocardiography can reveal useful information such as the size and shape of the heart, pumping capacity, and the location and extent of any tissue damage. Echocardiograms can also provide physicians with other estimates of heart function, such as calculating cardiac output, ejection fraction, and diastolic function.
Echocardiography is an important tool in assessing heart wall abnormalities in patients with suspected heart disease. It is a tool that helps in early detection of heart attack.
An echocardiogram not only can produce ultrasound images of heart structures, but also can use Doppler ultrasound to make an accurate assessment of the blood flowing to the heart tissue. Colored Doppler as well as spectral Doppler are used to capture any abnormal connections between the left and right sides of the heart, blood leakage through valves (valve failure), and estimation of the number of valves open (or not open).
