The ultrasound technique of clicking pictures of the heart and its valves and surrounding structures is known as Two-dimensional echocardiography. It is the cross-sectional slice of organ and blood vessel of the heart.
Since the solid and fluid organ conducts sounds, and bone and air do not so it provides a deep dense and dark areas. Air on the other hand has this classic shimmering effect which is a mixture of echoic and hypoechoic areas. The common propositions of the two-dimensional echo tests are fanning from left to right, rotation around a perpendicular axis and angling and sliding.
This type of echocardiography with color dopler test helps in determining the flow of blood vessels through color pixeled lines, i.e. red for towards the transducer and blue indicates away from it.
