Echocardiography

Definition

Echocardiography is ultrasonography of the heart. The procedure is usually performed by placing an ultrasound-emitting transducer against the chest (transthoracic echocardiography), but can also be undertaken using an ultrasound-emitting transducer on the end of a scope that is placed in the lower part of the oesophagus (transoesophageal echocardiography).
