The patient will lie down an exam table or bed. An echocardiogram technician will then use a transducer (device resembling a computer mouse) through the chest. The device will be maneuvered throughout the chest in order to examine different angles of the heart. A lubricant gel is applied to the chest to make it easier for the transducer to slide. The whole process lasts for 30 minutes. The echo will be read by an independent cardiologist with the results ready typically in about a week.
