2d Echo and Stress Test
Stress echocardiography also called an echocardiography stress test or stress echo is a procedure that determines how well your heart and blood vessels are working.
During stress echocardiography, you’ll exercise on a treadmill or stationary bike while your doctor monitors your blood pressure and heart rhythm.
When your heart rate reaches peak levels, doctor will take ultrasound images of your heart to determine whether your heart muscles are getting enough blood and oxygen while you exercise.
A 2D echocardiogram is a diagnostic test that provides excellent and clear images of the heart, the paracardiac structures and the vessels in the heart. It is a non-invasive technique that uses sonar waves in order to pass through the skin, reach the internal organs and form clear images.
Also known as the Doppler ultrasound of the heart, the 2D echo test can be used in conjunction with stress tests, in order to assess the proper functioning of the heart.
At SIMS Hospital, we realise the importance of diagnostic and monitoring tests, along with the mental stress that the patient goes through before and during such tests.
Keeping this in mind, we have designed the most comfortable, advanced, best-in-class infrastructure and machinery, along with the most experienced, warm and trained professionals in order to make the process easier, quick and more result-oriented for all our patients.
