Pediatric Echocardiography

Similar to a fetal echocardiogram, a pediatric echocardiogram is simply an ultrasound of the heart. A transducer which emits sound beams is placed on your child’s chest to promote clear visualization of the heart structures.

This painless procedure typically takes between 15 and 30 minutes to complete. It is used most often to evaluate for possible structural defects of the heart, and is performed by one of our physicians or technicians in a calm atmosphere.
