During your evaluation, your doctor will review your medical history, symptoms, and concerns. She will listen to your heart and lungs and observe your physical appearance. You will also need several, possibly all, of the following tests to measure your heart’s size and function:
An electrocardiogram is a procedure that records the electrical activity of the heart.
An echocardiogram (echo for short) is a cardiac ultrasound that helps assess heart conditions.
Heart function stress tests provide measurable feedback about the function of the heart.
Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (Cardiac MRI) is an MRI for your heart. It uses powerful magnets to create pictures of the heart and coronary arteries.
Genetic testing is a blood test that looks for errors, or mutations, in your DNA and genes.
