Our focuses are on the detection and treatment of heart disease, using external tests rather than instruments inserted into the body to evaluate and diagnose cardiac disorders. Patients with a history of heart disease, suspected valve disease, or chest pain with unknown causes may be referred to as a non-invasive evaluation.
Non-invasive cardiology identifies heart problems without using any needles, fluids, or other instruments inserted into the body. Non-invasive cardiologists utilize techniques such as:
- Echocardiography: The usage of ultrasound waves to create images of the heart and surrounding structures in order to identify how well the heart pumps blood, infections, and structural abnormalities.
- Stress tests: Stress testing usually involves exercise and is called exercise stress test(TMT) and for those people who can`t exercise because of orthopedic problems etc the dobutamine stress test (DSE) is performed which is closely monitored by the cardiologist. These exercises provide information about how a person’s heart performs under physical //dobutamine stress.
- Heart rhythm monitors: Heart rhythm monitors may also be called a Holter monitor or cardiac event recorder. Heart monitors are essentially tape recorders for your heart’s electrical activity over a set amount of time.
- CT scans: CT scans produce images of the affected area examined by the radiologist for any heart diseases and atherosclerosis.CT coronary angiography is a non-invasive alternative to conventional angiography for the diagnosis of heart blockages
- Nuclear cardiology: A non-invasive study of cardiovascular disorders by means of various types of imaging that may use radioactive elements.
- Cardiac MRI: Study and testing of the heart structural abnormality through MRI
