Echocardiography

Echocardiography has become nowadays the backbone of cardiac imaging. There are very few situations in clinical cardiology where an echocardiogram is not of significant value. The description and understanding of cardiologic problems almost always involve the echocardiographic findings. Apart from the imaging information, we can also collect, without any risk, hemodynamic data which are very useful for the right approach of the patient.

There is no other exam which can provide us with so much information about the cardiac function so quickly and with such reproducibility. Therefore virtually all physicians who care for cardiology patients have to be familiar with echocardiography. A well trained doctor as well as state of the art equipment are needed for optimal results.

The portable echocardiograph VIVID-I of our cardiology dept. in combination with our expertise and long standing training give us the opportunity to perform reliable examinations even at the patient’s home if needed.
