When you have shortness of breath or chest pain, your doctor may order tests to determine if you have heart disease or problems with the valves of your heart.
An echocardiogram creates images of the heart using sound waves. The images show your doctor how your heart is beating and pumping blood.
Some heart problems only occur during physical activity. During a stress echocardiogram, images are taken before and after you walk on a treadmill. If you are unable to exercise, you may have an injection of medication that can mimic what happens in your body during exercise.
