In terms of the cardiac examination, a standard electrocardiogram (EKG) is not sufficient for diagnosis; only the echocardiogram can detect possible enlargement of the aorta.
Non-invasive tests include electrocardiogram (ECG ), exercise stress test, CT scan, and echocardiogram.
All patients with an audible cardiac murmur should have an echocardiogram.
A transoesophageal echocardiogram (TOE) was therefore arranged to exclude left atrial thrombus, prior to performing the ablation.
An echocardiogram can also detect inheritable conditions such as cardiomyopathy and mitral valve prolapse.
