EKG Highlights the Heart and Electrical System

By HERWriter

Cardiologists like Dr. Suzanne Sorof like to use an electrocardiagram (EKG) to determine whether or not there are any problems with your bloodstream and your heart. It takes a picture of the electrical system. If your EKG shows any irregularities a cardiologist can perform other tests.

An ultrasound helps to study the various sections of your heart. A stress test indicates whether the electrical system is faulty.

"Dr. Suzanne Sorof, M.D., is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in Cardiology and Internal Medicine.
