Echocardiography, also known as echo, is an ultrasound examination of your heart to assess the function of the heart structures. Sound waves create a moving picture of your heart, giving us information about its size and shape, and how well your heart chambers and valves are working.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
