Cardiac diagnostic & tests
New tests are always being developed to help the understanding of problems affecting the heart. The demonstrative tests in cardiology are techniques for determining the heart conditions connected with sound versus unfortunate, pathologic.
- Electrocardiogram (ECG). This test records the electrical activity of the heart.
- Stress test. This is also called a treadmill or exercise ECG. This test is done to monitor the heart while you walk on a treadmill
- Transthoracic echocardiogram (echo or TTE). An echo is a non-invasive test that uses sound waves to evaluate your heart's chambers and valves, and how well it pumps
- Transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE). This test is like a transthoracic echocardiogram. But it's done with medicine to help you relax (sedation).
