Cardiac Evaluation with Echo Q & A

What is a cardiac evaluation?

A cardiac evaluation is a medical exam that evaluates the function and structure of your heart. Heart disease is common and often develops without causing any signs or symptoms until you have a devastating event like a heart attack or stroke.

A cardiac evaluation looks for signs of heart disease before you have complications so you can take action now to prevent future problems. 

The cardiac evaluation may include a physical examination along with various tests such as an electrocardiogram (EKG), stress test, and blood tests. 


An EKG is a painless test that evaluates your heart’s electrical activity at that moment in time.

Stress test

A stress test evaluates your heart when it’s pumping harder, making it easier to spot heart conditions. 

Blood tests

Blood tests measure cardiac enzymes that may show signs of heart damage.

Galenus Group is a group medical practice that offers cardiac evaluations with an echocardiogram (echo).

What is an echo?

An echo is an imaging test that uses ultrasound technology to show the structure of your heart and arteries and the movement of blood through the blood vessels and heart. An echo measures the size and shape of your heart, evaluates movement during heartbeats, and assesses pumping strength.

Galenus Group offers many in-house services including ultrasounds like the echo, making it more convenient for you to get the tests and care you need. 

Who needs a cardiac evaluation with echo?

Anyone with concerning symptoms like chest pain or shortness of breath or a history of heart disease needs a cardiac evaluation with echo. You may also benefit from the evaluation and test if you have concerns about heart health or a family history of heart disease.

A cardiac evaluation with echo can help diagnose cardiovascular conditions such as:

  • Coronary artery disease (CAD)
  • Arrhythmia
  • Heart valvular disease
  • Heart abnormalities

Your provider at Galenus Group may recommend a cardiac evaluation with echo if you have heart disease risk factors like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes. 

What happens after a cardiac evaluation with echo?

After you complete your cardiac evaluation with echo at Galenus Group, the team reviews the results from your testing and generates a report. They schedule a follow-up visit to discuss their findings and develop a proactive wellness plan. 

At Galenus Group, you get great physicians and quality care you can trust. Call today or schedule your cardiac evaluation online.
