Heart Imaging

The Heart Imaging Program at the Mount Sinai Health System is nationally renowned for its academic excellence and clinical achievements. We perform a full spectrum of echocardiographic services with a strong emphasis on echocardiographic research and cutting edge technology. The program is run by the leaders in the field of echocardiography and employs a highly trained technical staff including registered sonographers, nurses, and level-3 echo fellows.

We store all echocardiographic studies digitally and can review them at any of our workstations. We perform 23,000 echocardiographic studies annually, including more than 2,400 stress echocardiographic studies and approximately 1,600 transesophageal studies. We also perform sophisticated quantitative images such as strain and strain rate, echo imaging for structural heart disease including transcatheter aortic valve replacement, mitral clip and transcatheter mitral valve replacement, septal ablation, and left atrial appendage closure.
