Echocardiogram sends high-pitched sound waves to the heart. The waves reflect or bounce back and are then converted to images of the heart, to reveal how efficiently the heart is functioning. Hence, it detects problems in the human heart. Two of the multiple types of Echocardiogram are 1. Transthoracic Echocardiogram (TTE), and 2. Transesophageal Cardiogram (TEE)
Not allowed to eat or drink hours before the procedure in the case of TEE, though TTE requires no special preparation.
