Three Reasons To Book In A Private Heart Scan

At EchoMed, we believe investing in cardiovascular wellbeing is immensely important. Lifestyle modifications – such as adopting a healthy diet and cardiac diagnostics (such as an echocardiogram or ECG testing) can be complementary in optimising your cardiovascular wellbeing. 

In this article, we will discuss three reasons why you might book yourself for a private heart scan and the importance of looking after your overall heart health.


Firstly, if you have any symptoms that concern you, you should check your heart health with the help of a professional. The earlier you have your check-up, the better the chances of an early diagnosis, with important ramifications on your response to any treatment.

It may seem obvious that, if experiencing chest pain, you should seek medical attention, but which other symptoms may warrant booking a private heart scan? Here are a few to keep an eye on:

  • Breathlessness
  • Tiredness or Fatigue
  • Ankle Swelling
  • Coughs, especially when they occur more frequently at night

If you experience these, don’t panic, but do make sure you get checked out if these symptoms persist.

As experts in our industry, we are always happy to discuss the necessary cardiac tests, whether you have concerning symptoms or just want a check-up. Our procedures are painless and non-invasive, and our experienced and qualified specialists endeavour to make the experience as comfortable and relaxed as possible.

Family Heart Conditions 

You do not necessarily need to show any symptoms of an unhealthy heart to apply for cardiac screening because, even though lifestyle factors – such as smoking, lack of exercise, or a suboptimal diet can accelerate the development of heart disease, unfortunately, hereditary heart conditions can affect anyone, no matter their lifestyle.

For example, if a close family member has a heart condition that can be inherited (such as cardiomyopathy), you should look into booking a private heart scan. Even if you are not experiencing any symptoms, undergoing an echocardiogram can still provide great peace of mind.

Knowledge is Power

Private heart scans are not just reserved for the elderly or those with poor general health. Heart scans can provide anybody with valuable information regarding their overall health, and as a result, we endeavour to make booking a heart scan with EchoMed as simple as possible.

At EchoMed, we encourage everyone to seek more information about their body. In many cases, the results of cardiac diagnostics can enable people to make overdue lifestyle modifications and take steps toward a healthier and happier tomorrow.

Early detection could change your life for the better. So don’t hesitate to contact our expert team for more information, or simply book your private heart scan appointment online now.


If you are experiencing any of the symptoms outlined above, such as shortness of breath or frequent coughing, you should seek medical advice regarding your heart health.

Cardiac diagnostics should not be reserved for those with poor health. At EchoMed, we like to make scans available as quickly as possible, and by booking with us online, you can receive peace of mind regarding your heart health with the guarantee of same-day results.
