An echocardiogram provides an ultrasound picture that shows the structure of the heart chambers and surrounding areas, and makes it easy to check for damages, blockages, and blood flow rate.
A 2D Echo is done to detect conditions such as:
• Any underlying heart diseases or abnormalities
• Congenital heart diseases and blood clots or tumours
• Malfunctioning of the heart valve
• Abnormality of blood flow within the heart
A Computed Tomography Angiogram (CT Angiogram) is a test that uses X-rays to provide detailed pictures of the heart and the blood vessels. A special dye (contrast material) is injected in your arm or hand to make the blood vessels easier to see on the scan.
Your doctor may recommend CT Angiography for the following reasons:
• To find an aneurysm (a blood vessel that has become enlarged and may be in danger of rupturing)
• To find blood vessels that have become narrowed by atherosclerosis (fatty material that forms plaques in the walls of arteries)
• To detect congenital (birth-related) abnormalities of the cardiovascular system, including the heart
• To identify blood vessels damaged by injury
• To find blood clots that may have formed in your leg veins and traveled into your lungs.
• To evaluate a tumor that is fed by blood vessels
Treadmill Test (TMT)
A TMT is a stress test that shows how your heart works during physical activity, which involves walking on a treadmill while your heart rhythm, blood pressure and breathing are monitored. Since exercise makes your heart pump harder and faster, a TMT stress test can reveal problems with blood flow within your heart.
Your doctor may recommend a TMT to:
• Diagnose coronary artery disease
• Diagnose heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias)
• Predict risk of dangerous heart-related conditions such as a heart attack.
• Guide treatment of heart disorders
An ECG records the electrical signals in the heart. It is a non-invasive and painless test used to quickly detect heart problems and monitor your heart’s health.
Your doctor may use an ECG to determine:
• Abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmias)
• If blocked or narrowed arteries in the heart (coronary artery disease) are causing chest pain or a heart attack
• Whether you have had a previous heart attack
• How well certain heart disease treatments, such as a pacemaker, are working
