Echocardiography, also known as an echocardiogram and echo test, is a painless test that uses sound waves, ultrasound, to produce images of your heart—showing its size, structure and motion. It provides valuable information about your heart health and can determine the presence of many types of heart disease.
An electrophysiology (EP) study is a test that records the electrical activity and the electrical pathways of your heart.
