Cardiology is the branch of medicne that deals with diseases and abnormalities of the heart. The field includes medical diagnosis and treatment of congential heart defects, coronary heart disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease and electrophysiology.
We specialise in the following tests:
Treadmill test (TMT) or exercise stress test is one of the commonest forms of stress tests used to induce provokable myocardial ischemia for diagnostic evaluation of coronary artery disease. In treadmill test, the subject walks on a treadmill as per the protocol of the test. The heart rate and blood pressure are monitored continuously along with 12 lead ECG with computerised ST and arrhythmia detection algorithms.
MDCT is a noninvasive test that uses X-rays to make pictures of your heart. Modern MDCT scanners work very fast and detailed. They can take images of the beating heart and show calcium and blockages in your heart arteries. With contrast dye, MDCT can also be used to check if coronary artery bypass grafts remain open, check for congenital heart defects and also check how your ventricles are working.
Cardiac MRI is a common test used to diagnose and assess many heart related diseases and conditions Cardiac MRI can help explain results from other tests, such as X-rays and computed tomography scans. Doctors sometimes use cardiac MRI instead of invasive procedures or tests that involve radiation or dyes containing iodine.
It is a test in which ultrasound is used to picture out the heart. It is capable of displaying a cross sectional “slice” of the beating heart, including the chambers, valves and the major blood vessels that exit from the left and right part of the heart.
Electrocardiography is the process of recording the electrical activity of the heart over a period of time using electrodes placed on a patient's body. These electrodes detect the tiny electrical changes on the skin that arise from the heart muscle depolarizing during each heartbeat.
