echocardiogram (ECHO)

M-mode Echocardiograms. The M-mode echo produces an image that looks more like a tracing than a heart. The M-mode echo helps measure the overall size of the heart chambers. These measurements can indicate problems with the heart's pumping ability. For example, persons with congestive heart failure have thickened ventricular walls and/or weakened heart contractions.
