Echocardiography is an ultrasound of the heart. It produces images of the four heart chambers, the four valves and the aorta as it exits the heart.
The technique is under-utilised in the UK due to the lack of availability of skilled operators. Sloane Street Investigations has the latest GE scanner and, through working with Dr Denis Pellerin, we are able to offer this innovative service. It makes an enormous difference in the management of patients with high blood pressure and is the sine qua non in the assessment of all cardiac conditions.
