Why do I need an echo?
If you are experiencing symptoms which could be a sign of heart disease, or have been told you have a heart murmur, you should consider booking an echo scan. These symptoms include:
o Shortness of breath
o Chest pain
o Dizzy spells
Alternatively, people without symptoms who are looking for reassurance about the structure and function of their heart – such as those who engage in strenuous exercise or have a family history of cardiovascular disease – should also consider booking a scan with us. No GP referral is necessary.
