Non Invasive Cardiac Treatment
Non-invasive cardiology identifies heart problems without using any needles, fluids, or other instruments which are inserted into the body.
Non-invasive cardiologists utilize techniques such as:
- Nuclear cardiology
: A non-invasive study of cardiovascular disorders by means of various types of imaging which may use radioactive elements.
: 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.
- Cardiac electrophysiology
: Study and testing of the electrical currents which generate heartbeats.
- Stress tests
: Stress testing usually involves exercise which is monitored by your cardiologist. These exercises provide your cardiologist information about how your heart performs under physical stress.
- Heart monitors
: Heart 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 which your cardiologist can examine for heart disease and atherosclerosis.
Once your specialist has identified risk factors or existing conditions, they may recommend medication and lifestyle changes to improve your heart’s health.
