Cardiology is a branch of medicine that deals with the disorders of the heart as well as some parts of the circulatory system. We provide diagnosis and treatment in our center for all kinds of cardiac patients, from children to the oldest adults. They are also specialized in diagnosing and treating diseases of the cardiovascular system. Heart disease relates specifically to the heart, while cardiovascular disease affects the heart, the blood vessels, or both

WHEN WOULD YOU NEED A CARDIOLOGIST?

A person may need to see a cardiologist even without symptoms, if they have a family history of heart disease or high cholesterol, if they are or have been a smoker, if they have diabetes, or if they are starting a new exercise program.
A cardiologist will review a patient’s medical history and carry out a physical examination. A woman who has had pre-eclampsia may be at higher risk of heart problems during the menopause.

DIAGNOSIS TYPES

  • Electrocardiography (ECG):

An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) records the electrical signal from your heart to check for different heart conditions. Electrodes are placed on the chest to record the heart’s electrical signals, which cause the heart to beat. Recordings give information about the heart muscle and the neural system.

  • Cardiac Stress Test / Treadmill:

It helps detecting coronary artery disease and also to determine their extent. Diseases are diagnosed after evaluating the symptoms, which also decides for their severity

  • Holter ECG:

This method is used for the patients who need ECG recording for more than 24 hours. Rhythm and tension Holter are performed. 24-hours Blood pressure Holter is also another method that is being applied in our clinics

  • Echocardiography Test (Heart Ultrasound):

This test uses sound waves to produce live images of your heart. The image is called an echocardiogram. It also allows your doctor to monitor how your heart and its valves are functioning. The images can help them get information about blood clots in the heart chambers

  • CT Coronary Angiography:

A CT coronary angiogram or “CTCA” is a scan that records pictures of your heart. It is mainly used for patients who cannot have coronary angiography. Before the pictures are taken, dye (or contrast) is injected into a vein (usually in your arm). The dye highlights any blockages in your coronary arteries, helping to diagnose coronary artery disease

  • Doppler ultrasound (vessels)
