Hi I’m new here and I need help deciphering this echocardiogram report. Doctors do not really explain them well. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Most of it sounds good – But – I have a problem with anything that says “not well visualized” and then gives an absolute or guess about something. Example: the mitral valve “not well visualized.” “There is no mitral valve stenosis.” or about the aortic valve: “The aortic valve is not well visualized, but probably trileaflet.”
I’d probably ask to have a second echo to try to get a clearer visualization.
