Echocardiography includes B-mode, M-mode, and Doppler assessment using right and left parasternal and subcostal windows. An integrated ECG ensures accurate timing of measurements.
The measurements obtained provide information on cardiac chamber dimensions, wall thicknesses, systolic and diastolic function, and morphology and function of cardiac valves.
If more advanced cardiac assessment is required for more complex echocardiography SWI can arrange a referral for your patient. SWI does not provide Breed associated heart testing. For more information please see www.bsava.org.uk/vcs/testing/menu.htm
