4D ECHO & Stress Echo machine by Philips is a dedicated Cardiac ultrasound machine which can scan the heart to get comprehensive diagnostic information. This machine gives the ability to deliver size, resolution and volume rate. With the Stress applications physicians can view the ventricles under stress. High quality images enable us to use this machine for screening as well as diagnostic purposes to detect or rule out heart disease.
Treadmill test (TMT) or exercise stress test is one of the commonest forms of stress tests for diagnostic evaluation of coronary artery disease. The cardiac stress test is done with heart stimulation, by exercise on a treadmill. The level of mechanical stress is progressively increased by adjusting the difficulty (steepness of the slope) and speed. The test administrator or attending physician examines the symptoms and blood response. The TMT machine uses special algorithms and measures multiple risk factors which can be reported simultaneously, giving a comprehensive view of the risk, and also can assess the risk of Sudden Cardiac Death
ECG is a simple, test that records the heart`s electrical activity. It helps to understand how the heart works. With each heartbeat, an electrical signal spreads from the top of the heart to the bottom, causing the heart to contract and pump blood.
Instructions for Patients
We recommend you take prior appointment for ECHO and TMT to avoid waiting time at the centre.
