An echocardiogram is a procedure that allows doctors to see your heart’s movement, providing valuable information about the flow of blood between chambers and its pumping action. Using this information, our cardiologists can:

  • Assess the overall strength of your heart
  • Diagnose heart disease
  • Track the progress of past treatment

We understand heart conditions can be unsettling, which is why our cardiologists and staff work hard to ensure a comfortable evaluation, and quick results after visiting our echo lab.

Tests We Perform

Here’s a look at the tests we perform at the Healient echocardiogram lab in Kansas City.  

Transthoracic echocardiogram

A device called a transducer (a hand-held wand) sends ultrasound waves through your chest toward your heart. As the waves bounce back to the transducer, our special software produces the live images that are shown on a monitor in real-time.

Transesophageal echocardiogram

An ultrasound of the heart via the esophagus that gives a clearer picture of the heart. This allows your doctor to see areas of the heart that are not visible with other tests.

Stress echocardiogram

A test that looks for indirect signs of significant blockage of the heart arteries. Using an inclined treadmill to achieve a target heart rate, a sonographer takes ultrasound pictures of your heart before and after exercise. A cardiologist interprets the ultrasound images to determine the results.







Three-dimensional echocardiogram

Using transesophageal or transthoracic echocardiography, this test creates a 3-D image of your heart. This test includes multiple images from different angles. This procedure is common prior to heart valve surgery.
