ELECTROCARDIOGRAM - ECG

An electrocardiogram records the electrical signals in your heart. It's a common and painless test used to quickly detect heart problems and monitor your heart's health.

ECHOCARDIOGRAM – ECHO

An echocardiogram uses sound waves to produce images of your heart. This common test allows your doctor to see your heart beating and pumping blood. Your doctor can use the images from an echocardiogram to identify heart disease

EXERCISE TREADMILL TEST – ETT

An exercise treadmill stress test, also called a stress test, shows how your heart works during physical activity. Because exercise makes your heart pump harder and faster, an exercise stress test can reveal problems with blood flow within your heart.

TRANSOESOPHAGEAL ECHO – TOE

Transοesophageal echocardiography (TΟE) is a test that produces pictures of your heart. Unlike a standard echocardiogram, the echo transducer that produces the sound waves for TOE is attached to a thin tube that passes through your mouth, down your throat and into your esophagus. Because the esophagus is so close to the upper chambers of the heart, very clear images of those heart structures and valves can be obtained.

DOBUTAMINE STRESS ECHO – DSE

A stress echocardiogram is a test done to assess how well the heart works under stress. A dobutamine stress echocardiogram (DSE) may be used if you are unable to exercise. The “stress” is triggered by a medicine called dobutamine. Dobutamine is put in a vein and causes the heart to beat faster. It mimics the effects of exercise on the heart. An echocardiogram, the ultrasound study of the heart, evaluates the heart’s size, how strongly it pumps blood, and how well the valves are working.

24 Hour Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring allows many blood pressure (BP) readings to be recorded over a 24-hour period, whether the patient is awake or asleep. At a doctor’s office or clinic, an instrument called a sphygmomanometer is used to take BP readings. Usually, only one or two readings are taken during a doctor’s visit. However, ambulatory BP monitoring yields many readings over a continuous period.

Το κυριότερο πλεονέκτημα της εξέτασης   είναι ότι μετράει τις πιέσεις του ασθενούς στο φυσικό του περιβάλλον (στο σπίτι του ή στη δουλειά του και γενικότερα στην καθημερινή του δραστηριότητα) αποφεύγοντας έτσι τον παράγοντα stress που συχνά υπεισέρχεται και επηρεάζει την μετρούμενη αρτηριακή πίεση στο ιατρείο (φαινόμενο λευκής μπλούζας του ιατρού).

Κατέχει επομένως  σημαντικό ρόλο στην εξακρίβωση των πραγματικών πιέσεων όταν υπάρχει μεγάλη διαφορά ανάμεσα στις αναφερόμενες πιέσεις στο σπίτι σε σχέση με τις μετρούμενες στο ιατρείο.

RHYTHM MONITORING – HOLTER MONITORING

A Holter monitor is a small, wearable device that keeps track of your heart rhythm. Your doctor may want you to wear a Holter monitor for one to two days. During that time, the device records all of your heartbeats.

A Holter monitor test is usually performed after a traditional test to check your heart rhythm (electrocardiogram), especially if the electrocardiogram doesn't give enough information about your heart's condition.

We offer Holter Monitoring through a waterproof device, up to 6 days. Also we have the capability of monitoring a 12 channel ECG for arrythmia localization.

Cardiac MRI

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) uses magnets and radio waves to capture images inside your body without making a surgical incision. It allows your doctor to see the soft tissues in your body, along with your bones.

An MRI can be performed on any part of your body. However, a heart or cardiac MRI looks specifically at your heart and nearby blood vessels.
Unlike a CT scan, an MRI does not use ionizing radiation.
