Services offered by the Department of Cardiac Sciences

The major facilities available for patients includes:

Non-invasive Cardiac laboratory

For early diagnosis of heart problems, every cardiovascular case is assessed in detail through various highly precise tests such as 2D/3D Echo, Strain rate imaging, Holter monitoring via a portable device that can measure electrical activity for 24 hrs or long, Ambulatory BP monitoring (wherein the sphygmomanometer is used to measure the blood pressure readings for 24-hr period irrespective of whether the person is asleep or awake), Head-Up Tilt Table (HUTT) test (records heartbeats and pressure per minute while the person head is tilted onto the table at different levels), Treadmill testing (to measure the electrical activity of the heart while exercising), Ankle Brachial Index test (to check for Peripheral artery disease), Coronary Computed Tomography (CT) Angiography (computers are used to visualise the heart anatomy in high resolution), Echocardiography (transesophageal, fetal echocardiography, transthoracic, dobutamine stress electrocardiography, and three-dimensional), Non-invasive Cardiology and others.

Best World-Class Equipment

The diagnostic equipment includes 3 Tesla MRI, 128 slice CT Angiography, two treadmill machines, 2 latest 2-D Color Doppler Echocardiography machines, Holter monitoring systems, Ambulatory blood-pressure monitoring equipment, and state of the art Pulmonary Function test lab. This advanced equipment ensures that the doctor gets a true picture of the problem followed by a comprehensive treatment plan.

The diagnostic tests offered at RBH include Stress ECG, Transthoracic 2-D Echocardiography, 2-D Transesophageal Echocardiography, Exercise, and Pharmacological Stress Echocardiography, Carotid Doppler, Peripheral Doppler (arterial and venous), Renal Doppler, PFT, Holter, and Ambulatory BP monitoring.
