Re: Question about Echo

Techs cannot say anything to a patient about what they see or did not see. They could lose their jobs.

I had a med called Difinity when I had my last Echo so they could see better as there is artifact sometimes that blocks the view on some patients.

My Echo's are always scheduled on the days the M.D. Echocardiogram Specialist is in the building. He views them right away while I am waiting. Sometimes, he will ask the Tech to repeat an area.. Usually I will know the EF fraction before going home but the rest of the results is a day or two later.
