I know my reply is a wee bit late but yes, congestive heart failure can be seen on an Echo.  How do I know this?  Because I LITERALLY just had an Echo today to see if I had congestive heart failure.  I won't know the results until Monday...but I am crossing my fingers for good news.

I think the effects of congestive heart failure would be visible on a echocardiogram, but the term Congestive Heart Failure, at least in my case, is used as a name to cover several symptoms.  Such as:  profound swelling, shortness of breath, etc.
