Echocardiography 
An echocardiogram uses ultrasound techniques to image two-dimensional slices of the heart. It produces accurate assessment of the velocity of blood and cardiac tissue at any arbitrary point using pulsed or continuous wave Doppler ultrasound. It also can be used with Doppler ultrasound to make flow-related measurements more accurate.
