Also, if there is a problem with the function, the test can give an indication according to the timestamps. In this test, a probe is placed which emits ultrasound frequency or waves and simultaneously captures the timestamp when it bounces back. These sound reports are collected and processed within the processor.

Finally, an image appears like the absolute in 2D or 3D. The test is taken from different angles of the heart and also the timestamps are different. The patients are asked to walk or perform some activity to elevate their heart rate. This would give an indication to the doctor about the heart activity in an agitated state.

In this test, the coronary arteries are tested closely with accuracy and precision. In some cases, few patients have thick chest walls. This is called emphysema. If the patient has emphysema, it is tough for the echo machine to report the exact shape of the heart. In such cases, another test is advised which is known as a transesophageal echocardiogram.

Techniques of Echo Test

Most of the time, slacks of reports with different timestamps are asked. In few cases, the doctor stack a number of images and help create a 3D Echo report.
