Well do you have a family history of heart probs? You aren't overweight and are too young for serious problems due to inactivity. And I also hope that everything turns out alright, you'll be in my thoughts.
I was waiting for you to come give a good description....:cheers:Breifly it is an ultrasound of the heart valves and the wall thicknesses. It also looks at the pericardium to see if it can locate scaring from old infections and such. It is noninvasive and quickly gives a diagnosis of valve defects. It will not replace an angiocath to look at the blood supply to the different parts of the heart. The electrocardiogram (EKG) looks at mostly the electrical impulses and determines if a part of the heart wall is damaged from prior blood clots or electrical conduction interuptions.
