You should probably have an ECG if you have risk factors for an enlarged heart such as high blood pressure or symptoms of heart disease, such as chest pain, shortness of breath, an irregular heartbeat or heavy heartbeats.
Cardiac Risk Markers Profile estimates the levels of cardiac risk markers in the body, which help in evaluating the functioning of the heart. The test also evaluates lipids in the body, abnormal levels of which can lead to heart attacks or other severe heart conditions.

An echocardiogram is a common test. It gives a picture of your heart using ultrasound, a type of X-ray. It uses a probe either on your chest or down your oesophagus (throat). It helps your doctor check if there are any problems with your heart's valves and chambers, and see how strongly your heart pumps blood.
