Rapid Clinics is a leading provider of Echocardiogram services across the UK. We offer private Echocardiogram scans with reports from specialist Cardiac Physiologists and Consultant Cardiologists within 3 working days. An Echocardiogram, known as an ‘ECHO’, is an ultrasound scan of the heart to assess both its structure and function.
An Echocardiogram (ECHO) uses ultrasound waves to produce images of the heart on a screen; the same technology used for performing pregnancy scans. Your Echo Report will be produced by the Cardiac Physiologist and overseen by our Consultant Cardiologist Clinical Lead.
A private Echocardiogram can catch early signs of heart disease, identify heart abnormalities, and guide doctors in treating the condition accordingly.
Echo scans are used to detect:
- Abdominal and thoracic aortic aneurysm
- Aortic dissection
- Blood clots
- Congenital heart disease
- Heart failure
- Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
- Valvular heart disease
