Is there anybody who can’t have an echo?

Anybody can have an echo scan, however, there are certain medical conditions (for example scoliosis) that reduce the quality of the ultrasound images and thereby limit the amount of information we can obtain about the heart.

Please note, we currently only offer scans and ECGs to adults. Children aged 16 years old or over are entitled to book in on the condition that they are capable of providing informed consent, are accompanied by a responsible adult, and have no history of congenital heart disease.

If you have questions about your suitability for a scan, please email
