Pediatric Echocardiography and Advanced Heart Imaging

Echocardiography, a non-invasive procedure that uses sound waves to provide unparalleled images of heart function, plays a vital role in the care of patients at the Children’s Heart Center.

Echocardiograms enable cardiologists to see abnormalities in the heart, such as:

  • Atrial or ventricular septal defect “holes in the heart”
  • Blocked heart valves
  • Heart function or structural abnormalities

Imaging Specialists

Our imaging specialists are among the most experienced in South Florida and perform more than 5,000 echocardiograms each year. In addition, our echocardiologists are UHealth physicians and are able to perform all types of echocardiography, including:

  • Cutting-edge, three-dimensional studies of the heart
  • Stress echocardiograms
  • Fetal echocardiograms
  • Transesophageal studies
  • Intravascular (ICE) studies

IAC-Accredited

Demonstrating our commitment to quality and a higher level of patient care, our IAC-Accredited echocardiography laboratory maintains accreditation by The Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC).

The echo lab is child and family friendly. The rooms are designed to allow privacy and are equipped with TVs and DVD players to make the experience pleasant for our patients.

Expertise is also available for advanced cardiac MRI and CT imaging when additional information is needed for optimal care.
