Echocardiogram with Digital Echo
Echocardiogram with digital echo at the hospitals of Methodist Health System, North Texas
What is it?
The cardiac digital echo allows doctors to see details of the heart’s anatomy (valves, vessels, and walls) as it beats. The test produces clearer images than traditional techniques. It also allows the heart to be viewed from two different angles at the same time.
Who needs it?
This new technology may be used for adults or children with heart problems. The superior quality of the images of a digital echo can help doctors find problems that can’t be seen with traditional echocardiograms. Digital echo may also be used to help doctors guide catheters with more precision during heart exams.
Where is this test performed?
Cardiac digital echo is available by the order of a physician and is available at:
Methodist Dallas Medical Center
Methodist Charlton Medical Center
Methodist Mansfield Medical Center
