This is the reason why he works in prestigious medical centres and he has fast access to a wide range of top-notch medical techniques and diagnosis facilities.
Here are some of the Cardiac Diagnostic Tests he performs in London:
An ECG records the heart electrical signals and can help your doctor detect irregularities in your heart rhythm and structure.
A Holter monitor is a portable device you wear to record a continuous ECG, usually for 24 to 72 hours. Holter monitoring is used to detect heart rhythm irregularities that aren’t found during a regular ECG exam.
This non-invasive exam includes an ultrasound of your chest that shows detailed images of your heart structure and function
This test involves raising your heart rate with exercise or medicine while performing heart tests and imaging to check how your heart responds.
In this test, a short tube (sheath) is inserted into an artery in your leg (groin) or arm. A hollow, flexible and longer tube (guide catheter) is then inserted into the sheath. Aided by X-ray images on a monitor, your doctor threads the guide catheter through that artery until it reaches your heart. The pressures in your heart chambers can be measured, and dye can be injected. The dye can be seen on an X-ray, which helps your doctor see the blood flow through your heart, blood vessels and valves to check for abnormalities.
Cardiac computerized tomography (CT) scan:
An X-ray tube inside the machine rotates around your body and collects images of your heart and chest.
Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI):
For this test, you lie on a table inside a machine that produces a magnetic field. The magnetic field produces pictures to help your doctor evaluate your heart.
With his innovative mobile cardiology service, these Cardiac Tests are available in any in a location of your choosing: your home, hotel, nursing or caring home, or even in your workplace.
