An echocardiogram, or “echo”, is a scan used to look at the heart and nearby blood vessels.
Angiography is a type of X-ray used to check the blood vessels. Blood vessels don’t show up clearly on a normal X-ray, so a special dye needs to be injected into your blood first. This highlights your blood vessels, allowing your doctor to spot any problems.
Heart Heroes works with children and their families living with congenital heart disease and conditions.
