Cardiovascular System Functional Diagnostics Department
Cardiovascular System Functional Diagnostics Department uses the following methods of cardiovascular system examination:
- Holter ECG monitoring
- Blood Pressure monitoring
- Cardiac stress testing – Treadmill Test
- Doppler and Duplex scanning
The department provides consultation, non-invasive functional examination of cardiovascular system of the patients and prescribes outpatient treatment. In case of necessity patients can be hospitalized and receive treatment in the wards.
The department performs service for following groups:
- Persons over 18 years, with suspected disease of the cardiovascular system;
- Persons that need preventive examination (athletes, pilots and others.);
- Patients with diseases of the cardiovascular system (diagnosis and the decision to further management of patients – outpatient treatment).
The Department serves the patients with following cardiovascular system diseases:
- coronary heart disease (CHD);
- heart disease;
- myocardial disease;
- hypertonic disease;
- pulmonary heart;
- circulatory and heart failure
The department had been equipped with contemporary medical equipment from well known companies Schiller, Siemens etc.(Treadmill – Schiller CS 200; ECG – Schiller AS101, Echocardiography system - Acuson
Siemens, Holter monitoring system – Schiller MT-101 , BP monitoring system - Schiller BR– 102 etc) that provide accurate data and diagnostics.
Recently installed ACUSON SC 2000 innovative expert class ultrasound system discovers a fundamentally new approach to ultrasound studies of heart and organization of diagnostic process in complex examination of cardiovascular diseases.
Echo in a Heartbeat™ technology of Acuson SC2000 system elaborated by Siemens is a fundamentally new approach to the study of cardiovascular system – volumetric echocardiogram of the whole heart within one heartbeat in real time, during which a doctor simultaneously gets a precise picture about heart anatomy and dynamic blood flow without a necessity to synchronize with ECG and breath holding of the patient. The doctors are able to get requested information regarding patient state very quick, with total absence of artifacts of “gluing together” the shots of cardiac cycle, with the use of special cardiac sensors - all these peculiarities are directed to get the highest quality of image.
Syngo Auto Left Heart technology provides automated determination of the left ventricle and left atrium edges followed by calculation of ejection fractions, end systolic and diastolic volumes due to application of the image recognition system and database of real clinic images.
The new release of this premium class device for cardiovascular studies for the first time enables to conduct color Doppler mapping to estimate the state of valves and intracardiac blood flow with the help of the new volumetric trans-esophagеal echo-probe in real time
