Echocardiography Laboratory

The Echocardiographic Laboratory at Zuckerberg San Francisco General (ZSFG) is a state-of-the-art cardiovascular imaging center located in the new ZSFG Hospital and Trauma Center. 

The Laboratory performs an average of 5,000 inpatient and outpatient imaging studies annually including transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiograms.  The Laboratory is staffed by a dedicated group of experienced cardiac sonographers who perform image acquisition using top of the line equipment.  Studies are interpreted by nationally renowned UCSF cardiology faculty with advanced cardiovascular training and who are experts in echocardiography.  Cardiology fellows and cardiac sonographers in training rotate through the Laboratory to obtain formal education in all aspects of echocardiography.
