Echocardiogram (Heart Ultrasound)
It can give important clues about the cause of chest pain, breathlessness, dizzy spells or other heart symptoms.
The echocardiogram has become routinely used in the diagnosis, management, and follow-up of patients with any suspected or known heart disease. It is one of the most widely used diagnostic tests in cardiology.
Having your heart echo performed or reported by your cardiologist at the time of your heart consultation may be more helpful and often allows them to match your symptoms directly with your heart ultrasound findings. Coastal Heart has the latest high-tech cardiac ultrasound equipment and has been recognised and accredited by Medicare Australia via the Quality Innovation Performance (QIP) Ltd organisation. Echocardiography is available as an open access GP referred service and is performed in our facility at Kanwal Medical Complex.
