It is important that you understand the difference between the two because these are both used in order to diagnose potential heart diseases. The echocardiogram is considered to be the ultrasound of the heart. This will show actual moving pictures of the heart that can be very useful for figuring out what’s wrong. EKG is known to be an electrocardiogram.

This is a non-invasive type of testing. People who are undergoing these tests will not usually feel a thing while undergoing the test. These tests are usually ordered when there are some signs that the person is exhibiting some cardiovascular diseases or abnormalities.
