Echocardiogram, Humble TX

Among our many cardiology diagnostic tools, echocardiograms are an essential tool to review many aspects of a heart’s health, by examining its functions when diagnosing a concern, after a procedure, or to monitor a potential issue. With nearly 30 years of experience as a cardiologist, Dr. Jacob has extensive knowledge in applying tests such as echocardiograms to accurately analyze the hearts of patients throughout Humble, Texas.

An echocardiogram, commonly referred to as an “echo”, is a type of ultrasound test in which high-pitched sound waves are emitted from a device called a transducer. By using these sound waves, echoes can form a video of your heart’s movements.
