Jason visited us for Bubble Echocardiogram, a non-invasive diagnostic test to identify a hole in the heart. Unlike a standard echocardiogram (heart ultrasound), a bubble echo uses an injection of saline (mixed with your blood to form tiny bubbles) to identify a hole in the heart called a patent foramen ovale (PFO).
