Coffs Cardiology specialist cardiac sonographer Carolyn has joined the team at Nambucca Healthcare Centre to provide a regular echocardiography service within the Nambucca Valley.
An echocardiogram is a painless procedure, which uses sound waves (ultrasound) to take moving pictures of your heart. Measurements taken from these pictures are helpful in determining how well your heart is working.
The echocardiogram is performed and recorded by a qualified specialist cardiac sonographer and the cardiologist reads the results and reports back to your GP. It may take up to an hour for the examination.
