Heart Conditions to Be Studied with Screening
Benefits of cardiac ultrasound are very wide. It enables to diagnose diseases including:
- Peripheral artery diseases of different organs (digestion, brains) and extremities
- Diagnosis of congenital heart diseases and estimation of their severity
- Infarction and post-infarction health state and stenocardia detection
- Diagnosis of disorders of endocardium
All conditions listed above are easy to detect with ultrasound scanning at the early stages. On average 90% of diagnoses using scanning prove correct. Affordable price enables to check health condition on yearly basis.
Exceptionally contemporary equipment is used for ultrasound screening using the latest achievements in medicine and electronics. It enables to get real-time image. It increases accuracy of imaging decreasing duration of the procedure making it less then a quarter of an hour. The procedure is totally safe and comfortable.
Doing ultrasound screening doctor pays special attention to the following parameters of cardiac work:
- Blood flow level in veins
- Presence and absence of different growths on cardiac valves
- Narrowing of holes and valve form change in cardiac diseases
- Cardiac muscle constriction level
Different conditions accompanied by blood circulation disorders in different part of the heart are clearly seen in ultrasound screening. This enables to diagnose myocardial infarction or stenocardia quite exactly. Highly experienced cardiologists at The Evromedika Clinic with high probability can determine what cardiac vessel is affected exactly.
