What is Ultrasound
We're leaders in treating as well as preventing — the most complex cardiovascular conditions. . We strive to better serve patients, to improve the health care experience.
What Is Ultrasound
Ultrasound (US) imaging, also called ultrasound scanning or sonography, is a method of obtaining images from inside the human body through the use of high frequency sound waves. The reflected sound wave echoes are recorded and displayed as a real-time visual image. Ionizing radiation (x-rays) are not involved in ultrasound imaging.
Ultrasound is a useful examination tool for many of the body's internal organs, including the heart, liver, gallbladder, spleen, pancreas, kidneys, and bladder. Because ultrasound images are captured in real-time, they can show movement of internal tissues and organs, and enable physicians to see blood flow and heart valve functions.

What is Diastolic Dysfunction
Aging and most diseases of the heart affect the ability of the heart to relax and fill properly because the muscles become stiffer. In most of these cases the basic units of the heart, the muscle cells, die and are replaced by cells that are not elastic. This loss of elasticity causes stiffening of the heart and is a progressive process.

Echocardiogram Facts - Questions & Answers
Q: What is an echocardiogram?
A: An echocardiogram is a safe, non-invasive procedure used to diagnose cardiovascular disease. By using echocardiography to visualize anatomy, structure, and function, doctors can quickly diagnose the presence and severity of heart valve problems, or determine abnormal flow within the heart which occurs with congenital heart disease. An echocardiogram provides your doctor with a non-invasive window to your heart, and enables a cardiologist along with your Doctor to diagnose a number of cardiovascular diseases and prescribe proper treatment.

Q. How does it work?
A: Echocardiograms reflect high-frequency sound waves directly off the heart tissue to create images of its structure: its four chambers, heart valves, the great blood vessels entering and leaving the heart, as well as the sac around the heart.
