4-D imaging With Advanced Echocardiography

All advanced echocardiography diagnostic methods such as transthoracic and trabsophageal echocardiography, stress echocardiography, 4-dimensional echocardiography, strain tissue imaging and carotid doppler imaging are performed by an experienced team with superior device quality. Unlike the currently available 2D echocardiography systems, all transthoracic (through the chest) and transesophageal (through the esophagus) echocardiography can be performed in four dimensions when necessary.

Determining the Risk of Having a Heart Attack

Performing blood essel imaging in addition to current screening tests for identifying atherosclerosis provides important information in terms of the hardening of cardiac vessels, even though the individual seems healthy or at low risk for cardiovascular disease. Two of the proven methods used in atherosclerosis screening in clinical trials all over the world are used in the SHAPE screening system. The SHAPE program combines both carotid doppler vessel wall thickness measurement and coronary calcium scoring with CT.

Early Diagnosis of Heart Disease With CIMT Test

The CIMT test is a diagnostic and vessel age determination test that is used for diagnosing athersclerosis and for screening purposes in predicting cardiovascular diseases, and that is recommended in European and American Heart Guidelines. The value obtained from the test indicates the vessel's age and the presence of atherosclerosis. This ultrasound imaging method that lasts about 10 minutes and is painless, can be performed on pregnant women as it does not expose the patient to radiation.
