How Much Does an Echocardiogram Cost?

An echocardiogram, often referred to as an “echo,” is an end-product image generated through a healthcare procedure known as an echocardiography.  With the purpose of producing a graphic outline of the heart’s movement, an echocardiography utilizes the technology in an ultrasound to examine the heart and surrounding cardiovascular system for impairment and malfunctions.

In the course of the procedure, high-frequency sound waves, commonly known as ultrasounds, provide pictures of the heart’s valves and chambers.  The ultrasound images show blood circulation all throughout.

How much did you spend?

Was it worth it?  

  1. huggins hospital (wolfeboro,  New Hampshire) paid $ and said:

    $3,150.00 for a echocardiography ultrasound. I guess it is worth it if it gives you peace of mind that you don’t have a heart problem. From what I can tell from online research I was over charged.

    Was it worth it? Yes
