Healthpointe is proud to announce that their Anaheim clinic will now be offering Echocardiography Examinations to patients with cardiovascular needs. The echocardiography examinations will be performed by renowned Qualified Medical Examiner and licensed Cardiologist, Dr. Oscar Matthews, M.D.
The echocardiography test is a non-invasive and cost-effective approach to effectively diagnosing heart conditions in patients who are critically ill or have undergone surgery. Also known as the echo test, the echocardiography examination is a painless diagnostic test that helps Healthpointe cardiologists, such as Dr. Matthews, to effectively monitor the heart via ultrasound and high-frequency sound waves.
The test examines the anatomy and functioning of the heart for cardiovascular abnormalities and diseases, along with disorders of the heart and blood vessels. Such detection of cardiovascular abnormalities and diseases include blood clots, tumors, and weak heart muscles, valve problems with the heart, poor blood flow, coronary heart disease, and more. This test is also often used on patients who have undergone a heart attack or stroke, in order for cardiologists to identify the cause of such attacks. The echo test can also be used to identify whether there are any structural problems with the heart, such as a congenital heart defect.
The echo test’s reliability in diagnosing problems related to the heart is promising as Healthpointe strives to find ways to significantly reduce the number of lives lost each year from fatal cardiovascular conditions.
