Private Echocardiogram Scan
Vista Health is a leading provider of Echocardiogram services across the UK. We offer private Echocardiogram scans with reports written by specialist Cardiac Physiologists and Consultant Cardiologists within 3 working days.
An Echocardiogram, also known as an ‘ECHO’, is a specialised cardiac ultrasound scan used to assess the structure and function of the heart. It can produce images of your heart chambers, valves, and walls, as well as your heart's blood vessels (aorta, arteries, and veins).
The test determines whether your heart and valves are functioning and can be used to diagnose heart problems. The echocardiogram uses sound waves to create a picture produced by an ultrasound to check for possible damage for conditions that affect heart function.

Why would you need an Echocardiogram?
Your GP or doctor may recommend an echocardiogram to check large blood vessels, heart chambers or heart valves.
Heart valve problems
The heart fails to pump a sufficient amount of blood around the body at the correct pressure.
Heart walls that have become thickened or enlarged. This can lead to heart failure.
Heart attack damage
Damage from a heart attack, where bloody supply to the heart was blocked from the narrowing of coronary arteries.
Chest pain and an accumulation of fluid surrounding the heart caused by inflammation of the lining around your heart.
Birth defects that affect normal heart function and the way your blood flows, such as congenital heart disease.
Heart muscle thickening can cause a heart chamber to expand. This may be a result of heart muscle weakness, coronary artery disease, or irregular heart rhythms.
An infection of the heart's inner lining is caused by bacteria entering the blood and travelling to the heart.
Blood vessel problems
This can be caused by high blood pressure, a stroke, or a heart attack.
