NON INTERVENTIONAL CARDIOLOGY
2D Echo & Color Doppler
Very good diagnostic modality to know about heart function, its pumping efficiency, diseases related to valves inside heart, structural hearts defects since birth (congenital heart disease).
Cardiac Treadmill Test (TMT)
We stress the heart by asking patient to walk on treadmill. During the test we monitor your blood pressure and changes in the ECG. Any significant changes in the ECG, will indirectly tell about narrowing in the coronary arteries.
It is a test that uses ultrasound imaging to demonstrate how well your heart muscle is attempting to pump blood to your body. It is primarily used to distinguish a diminishing in blood stream to the heart from narrowing in the coronary arteries.You will be asked to exercise on a treadmill or be given medications to stress your heart. Any change in the pumping of the heart muscle will tell about the narrowing in the coronary arteries.
