Echocardiography is a safe method of obtaining ultrasound images for diagnosis of cardiac pathology in adult and pediatric patient populations. Echocardiographers perform imaging exams that include acquisition of detailed images of heart anatomy, evaluation of pathologies, and measurement/analysis of hemodynamic flow patterns within the heart and the heart’s major vessels. The Echocardiographer prepares the study images and reports pertinent findings to the interpreting cardiologist as part of the diagnostic process.
