Cardiac Imaging

Cardiac imaging refers to medical imaging techniques used to evaluate the structure and functions of the heart. These techniques are used to diagnose a variety of heart health-related conditions and determine treatment plans. Cardiac imaging methods often include radiological and imaging technologies.

Cardiac Imaging at Liv Hospital


Liv Hospital Ulus physicians specializing in cardiac imaging, interventional cardiology and heart rhythm disorders; cardiology, catheter and observation unit nurses; It provides services in the field of cardiac imaging with its team consisting of guest relations officers.

4D Imaging with Advanced Echocardiography


All advanced echocardiography diagnostic methods such as transthoracic and trabsesophageal echocardiography, stress echocardiography, 4-dimensional echocardiography, strain tissue imaging and carotid doppler imaging; It is made by an experienced team with superior device quality. Unlike the 2-dimensional echocardiography systems used today, all transthoracic (applied over the chest) and transesophageal (through the esophagus) echocardiography applications can be performed in 4 dimensions when necessary.

The Risk of Having a Heart Attack is Determined


In determining arteriosclerosis, vascular imaging is performed in addition to existing screening tests; It provides important information about atherosclerosis of the cardiovascular vessels, even if the person appears healthy or at low risk for cardiovascular disease. Two of the methods whose reliability has been proven to be used in atherosclerosis screening through clinical studies conducted all over the world are used in the SHAPE screening system. With the SHAPE program, both the inner layer thickness of the vessel wall is measured with carotid Doppler and coronary calcium scoring is performed with CT.

Early Diagnosis of Heart Diseases with CIMT Test


CIMT test; It is an atherosclerosis diagnosis and vascular age determination test that is used for screening purposes in the diagnosis of atherosclerosis and predicting cardiovascular diseases, and is also recommended in the European and American Heart Guides. The value resulting from the test shows the person's vascular age and whether or not he has arteriosclerosis. This ultrasonographic imaging, which takes about 10 minutes and is painless, can also be performed on pregnant women as it does not contain radiation.
