Normal echo values?
About This Forum:

CHF is a condition in which the heart can’t pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs. In some cases, the heart can’t fill with enough blood. In other cases, the heart can’t pump blood to the rest of the body with enough force. Some people have both problems. The term "heart failure" doesn’t mean that your heart has stopped or is about to stop working. Heart failure is a serious condition that requires medical care. This forum is a place to ask questions about CHF. Some examples are: How is CHF diagnosed? What treatment options are available for me?

If you have a question that requires immediate medical attention, or if you think you may have an emergency situation, please call your doctor or 911 IMMEDIATELY!

Normal echo values?

My husband went to a cardiologist office after a bout of severe tachycardia after which he does not feel well. A 2d echo was performed and was unremarkable as they told us. I would like your opinion on the echo values, given the the cardiologist admitted not checking on them well relying only on the cardiac technician criteria
Here I include the links to every page of the report even of a cardiac spect I really appreciate any help, thanks

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Without being able to see the live, moving pictures of the echo I can not comment conclusively. However, on the basis of the still pictures that you sent and the echo report, the echo looks about as normal as it can get.

And the same goes for the SPECT.

Most important thing is to find a cardiologist who you feel comfortable with and can trust.  So critical.  This will give you incredible peace of mind that when he/she tells you someting, you can believe it.

Wishing you the best.
