Echocardiography (Echo) Lab


If you are referred to Sunnybrook for a test to investigate how well your heart is functioning, chances are you will have an appointment in our Echocardiography Laboratory, also called the Echo Lab. Our Sonographers and Echo Lab Cardiologists will perform a diagnostic test called an echocardiogram, or echo. This painless, non-invasive procedure uses ultrasound to record moving images of your heart and investigate your blood flow within your heart. The images taken provide valuable information about your cardiac function so that your cardiologist can detect any irregularities with your heart and get you the treatment you need.

Sunnybrook's Echo Lab is accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Committee (IAC) and Accreditation Canada Diagnostics.
