Diagnosing Heart Valve Disease

When your doctor suspects valve disease based on a physical examination and your symptoms, he or she will use an electrocardiogram (ECG), echocardiogram and chest X-rays to diagnose the problem. Sophisticated echocardiography technology is the best tool we have today for diagnosing heart valve disease.
