Echocardiography is a diagnostic test that uses ultrasound waves to create an image of the heart muscle. Ultrasound waves that rebound or echo off the heart can show the size, shape, and movement of the heart’s valves and chambers as well as the flow of blood through the heart.
Echocardiography is one of the most widely used diagnostic tests for heart disease, which is why mobile echocardiograms are becoming even more valuable. Taking that diagnostic technology mobile further benefits both the patient and the physician. Some of these benefits include:
Physician and Practitioner Convenience
Mobile echos greatly benefit doctors and practitioners in small or isolated towns because it gives them access to hands-on experience in technology that aids speedy and accurate diagnosis that may not otherwise be available.
Mobile echos provide ease-of-use to patients regardless of their location. And the convenience factor helps increase patient compliance, enhancing their overall care.
Combining Mobile Echos with Web PACS
Combing the practice of mobile echocardiograms with cloud-based cardiology PACS adds even more value and benefits to your practice. For example it allows you to:
- Eliminate handwritten reports
- Instantly view prior exam results
- Obtain echo reports instantly
