Echocardiography is widely used to carry out non-invasive cardiac evaluation at the bedside and provides useful real-time information about hemodynamics. It can also be used to diagnose a stress-induced cardiomyopathy and its complications such as shock, heart failure and apical thrombus. Early diagnosis and management are important to prevent possible complications, and short-term follow-up by echocardiography can readily determine the improvement in these abnormalities. In this brief review, we summarize the role of echocardiography in stress-induced cardiomyopathy, with a special focus on its benefits in the era of new emerging diagnostic technology.
