How long does it take to get results of an echocardiogram?
I had a bubble echo cardiograph 3 weeks ago, but not had the results. How long do they usually take?

The results of this test are usually evident at the time of the exam so this may be a delay in interpretation or in communication of the results. Follow up with your doctor who ordered the test.
