Caption: Normal heart. Coloured ultrasound scan of a healthy heart. This scan passes vertically through the heart, with the heart's four chambers seen as the black areas. The central orange areas are the walls and valves separating the chambers. The top two chambers are the atria, and the bottom two chambers are the ventricles. The heart is a hollow muscular pump that contracts continuously under a steady cycle of electrical impulses, sending blood to the lungs and around the body. An electrocardiogram (ECG) trace is seen across bottom, with the peaks of electrical activity corresponding to the beating of the heart. Ultrasound scanning uses high-frequency sound waves to look at structures inside the body.
