Advanced
Cardiac Imaging

Window to looking inside your heart
Have you ever wished you could look into your heart to see how well it functions?

We cardiologists want to look in too without having to be too invasive. That’s where cardiac imaging comes in. 

Advanced cardiac imaging modalities are a variety of non-invasive, painless diagnostic scans useful in evaluate cardiac structure and function. Cutting-edge technology allows detailed visualisation of the heart, allowing us cardiologists to detect a wide range of heart conditions, to monitor for surveillance and assess for improvement in condition with high accuracy. 

What Is Advanced Cardiac Imaging?

This group of investigations comprise of:

Transoesophageal Echocardiograms

Echo done through an oesophageal probe which provides very clear image of the heart. Especially useful to detect clots or infection inside the heart. 

 

Stress Echocardiography

Stress test for detection of blockages in the heart using ultrasound imaging combined with a treadmill stress test or medication to simulate exercise   

Computed Tomography Coronary Angiogram

CT scan of the heart and coronary arteries to detect abnormalities in how blood flows through your heart and to diagnose cardiovascular disease.

Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging

MRI uses magnetic field to produce detailed pictures of the structures within and around the heart. Especially useful to detect clots, cardiomyopathy and infiltrative heart disease.

Who Is It For?

An appropriate mode of advanced cardiac imaging will be recommended by your cardiologist when there is need for diagnostic imaging or surveillance of your heart.

When Are They Used?

Advanced cardiac imaging can be used to diagnose and follow up a variety of heart conditions, including:

Coronary Artery Disease

CT scans can be utilised to diagnose coronary artery disease and assess its severity. Stress echocardiograms can be used and allows evaluation heart muscle weakness as a consequence of lack of blood flow to the heart. 

Congenital Heart Disease

CT, MRI and advanced echocardiographic imaging are crucial in visualising complex anatomical abnormalities associated with congenital heart disease.

Heart Rhythm Disorders

Cardiac imaging is used to evaluate if structural heart abnormalities are the cause for heart rate irregularities and can aid with planning for treatment strategies and procedures.

Heart Valve
Disease

Transoesophageal echocardiograms allow highly accurate assessment of the severity of heart valve disease.

Heart
Failure

Cardiac MRI helps with the diagnosis of heart muscle disease in heart failure. CT scans and stress echocardiograms help determine if heart muscle weakness is due to blood vessel blockage to the heart.

Aortic Aneurysm
& Dissection

CT and MRI are excellent modalities used to detect and monitor abnormalities of the aorta. By detecting these conditions early and accurately, your cardiologist can provide timely and appropriate treatment.
