What's the difference between an ECG and an Echocardiogram?


An electrocardiogram records the heart’s electrical activity through repeated cardiac cycles, which is done using electrodes placed on top of the skin, which display a graph of voltage vs time of electrical activity of the heart.


An Echocardiogram, also known as an echo, uses painless ultrasound waves to assess the structure and function of the heart’s muscle, valves, and major blood vessels, producing a visual image of the heart.

What happens during an ECG?

When undergoing an ECG assessment at EchoMed, you will receive an industry-leading, thorough, and non-invasive test. This scan is completed using a 12-lead series of stickers and wires, which are applied across the chest to record the heart’s electrical activity and is the most useful, non-invasive assessment of the heart’s electrical wiring and rhythm. 

Undergoing ECG testing can also suggest underlying structural problems with the heart muscle, such as cardiomyopathy.

What happens during an echocardiogram?

At EchoMed, we offer an all-in-one service, meaning our scans are performed by Doctors themselves, giving our patients as comfortable and professional an experience as possible.

Our Heart Specialists have all been awarded accreditations by the British Society of Echocardiography (BSE), allowing them to perform a full echocardiogram and then provide the results straight away. All our specialists are on hand to help and have years of experience and knowledge, meaning you can have confidence that you are in the best hands possible.

What does each test show?

Each test has its own subset of advantages and uses, with both helping to identify serious heart issues and cases of heart disease. If you have been told by a Doctor that you have a heart murmur or have been experiencing symptoms associated with heart disease, you should consider booking in for an Echocardiogram. These tests are useful in patients with the following symptoms:

  • Chest pain
  • Palpitations
  • Breathlessness
  • Racing heartbeats
  • Fainting
  • Dizzy spells
  • Fatigue
  • Symptoms of a heart attack
  • Symptoms of coronary heart disease
