Echocardiogram 93306

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. About half of all Americans (47%) have at least one of the three key risk factors for heart disease.

Common Payable ICD-10 Codes

  • R07.9 – Chest Pain
  • R94.31 – Abnormal ECG/EKG
  • I49.9 – Arrhythmia
  • R00.2 – Palpitation
  • R07.89 – Chest Discomfort
  • I10 – Hypertension
  • R06.02 – Shortness of Breath

An echocardiogram looks at the heart’s structure and function and can be used along with a stress test and ECG/EKG to show a more complete picture of the heart. 

Heart Disease risk factors include:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Smoking
  • Diabetes and prediabetes
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Being physically inactive
  • Family history of early heart disease
