Pediatric Echocardiography in Norman

Trust our Caring & Experienced Norman Pediatricians

Our team of registered sonographers, equipped with years of expertise, is proud to offer premier echocardiogram (echo) services to young patients at our state-of-the-art facilities in Norman Regional HealthPlex. Pediatric echocardiograms are non-invasive heart assessments that utilize advanced ultrasound technology to create detailed images of a child's heart. Our dedicated healthcare services in Norman utilize industry-leading equipment for pediatric cardiac imaging to detect clearer results and more accurate diagnoses.

Understanding the Echocardiogram Procedure

An echocardiogram is a diagnostic tool that uses high-frequency sound waves, or ultrasound, to produce images of the heart's structure and function. This non-invasive procedure allows our pediatricians in Norman to observe a child's heart in real-time — showcasing the heart beating, the valves functioning, and blood flowing through the various chambers.

Preparing a pediatric patient for an echocardiogram revolves around making sure they are as comfortable as possible. Parents or guardians should explain the process in simple terms, reassuring the child that the test is painless and safe. It's usually not required for the child to fast or avoid drinking fluids before the procedure unless specifically instructed by their doctor for certain types of echocardiograms.

On the day of the test, we recommend dressing your child in comfortable clothing to make it easier for the sonographer to place the transducer on the chest. Bringing a favorite toy or blanket may also be beneficial to help keep the child calm and comfortable during the echocardiogram.

Committed to Patient Comfort

At Norman Regional Health System, each pediatric echocardiography session is a blend of high-quality imaging and comforting patient care. As a leading provider of healthcare services in Norman, our commitment extends beyond technology, into the dedicated hands of our specialists who always strive to create a gentle experience for our youngest patients and their families.
