Prof. Dr. med. Ulrich Fischer-Rasokat Cardiology Private Practice


Echocardiography is considered the key to cardiology and is the most important method of examining the heart. This completely gentle ultrasound examination provides comprehensive information about the condition and function of the heart. The advantage: new examination techniques such as tissue Doppler and strain analysis provide information about the condition of the heart that would not be visible to the naked eye. As a result, the first functional impairments of the heart can be detected at an early stage, and thus therapeutic measures can be initiated in good time. A three-dimensional representation is particularly helpful in the assessment of heart valve defects.

As head of the echo laboratories at the Kerckhoff Clinic Bad Nauheim for many years, Prof. Fischer-Rasokat has extensive expertise in the field of echocardiography. With a great deal of understanding for your comfort, he performs echocardiography, stress echocardiography, and transesophageal echocardiography in our practice.

Special forms of echocardiography

  • Stress echocardiography: This involves stimulating the heart and putting it in a stressful situation such as during exercise. During the examination, possible functional limitations of the heart tissue or malfunctions of the heart valves under everyday stress can be assessed.
  • Transesophageal (swallow) echocardiography: The transesophageal examination can be used to detect the finest changes in the heart cavities and heart valves. Because an echo probe is inserted into the esophagus during this examination, many patients anticipate that it will be unpleasant. However, due to our relaxed examination atmosphere, general anesthesia with good monitoring, and our well-practiced routine, we make transesophageal echocardiography as pleasant as possible for you.
