The Berkshire Heart Clinic, in Reading, Berkshire, is made up of a group of highly trained cardiologists practicing out of Dunedin Hospital in Reading.

We offer a consultant led rapid access clinic, ensuring that patients can have all the appropriate assessments and be seen in the quickest possible time – typically within 24 hours.

An echocardiogram (also known as a cardiac ultrasound or cardiac echo), is a specialised ultrasound scan of the heart. Echocardiograms are used to diagnose cardiovascular diseases and are one of the most widely used diagnostic tests for heart disease.

What's involved in having an echocardiogram?

An echocardiogram uses standard ultrasound techniques to produce a two-dimensional image of the heart. You will be required to sit or lie down as your consultant moves the ultrasound wand over your chest.

An echocardiogram can provide a range of information including the size, function and pressures of the heart, as well as information for assessing disease of the heart valves.
