echocardiogram (ECHO)

Doppler Echocardiograms. The Doppler echo allows doctors to assess the flow of blood through the heart. You may hear a swooshing or pulsating sound with this test. This is not the actual sound of your heart, but an amplified computerized audio signal. This type of test can detect back-flow of blood or difficulty moving blood across a thickened heart valve conditions that may indicate valvular disease.
