Echocardiogram:

An echocardiogram uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to generate an image of your heart. An echocardiogram will help determine the size and shape of your heart, thickness, and movement of your heart’s walls. This test will also discover how your heart moves, the heart’s pumping strength and if the valves are working correctly. Finally, the echocardiogram will let us know if blood is leaking backward through your heart valves or if there is a tumor or infectious growth around your heart valves.
