Echocardiography is an ultrasound technique which provides functional and anatomical information of the heart.
Cardiac CT is recommended as the first line investigation for low and intermediate risk patient’s presenting with new onset chest pain due to suspected coronary artery disease. Our team at Roman Catholic Hospital is well trained in obtaining diagnostic images of the coronary arteries to help referring clinicians to treat patients. Cardiac MRI is offered as a one-stop-shop multi parametric non-invasive tool for evaluation of myocardial function and accurate tissue characterisation. Functional studies include valvular assessment, myocardial viability and perfusion.
