Echocardiogram
2013-07-29 11:11:00

An echocardiogram is a test that, much like an ultrasound, uses sound waves to create a moving image of the heart. The most common type of echocardiogram is performed transthoracic, meaning the image is taken through a probe against the chest. A TTE does not involve radiation and is a very safe procedure. A cardiac sonographer will put a gel on the patient's chest and move the transducer around different areas, including directly anterior to the breastbone, inferior and lateral to the right...

The coronary sulcus is a deep groove that runs horizontally across the...
