Doppler echocardiography is the examination of the heart with an ultrasound. This examination method is used to diagnose the degree of cardiac insufficiency, congenital and acquired heart defects, to determine systolic and diastolic heart function, to assess the condition of heart valves, as well as to determine the cause of elevated blood pressure. Echocardiography is indicated for all patients with suspected cardiological pathology.
The ultrasound devices of the newest generation enable heart examination in four dimensions. Veselības centrs 4 Ltd. regularly follows he development of the new technologies and often devices that have recently been presented at international medical technology exhibitions are purchased for the needs of Veselības centrs 4. Thus, patients have access to examinations of the highest quality.
For instance, such premium level device is Vivid E95 device by medical technology manufacturer General Electric. The device ensures excellent image quality for the patients with high body mass index and certain lung diseases (HOPS, emphysema) as well, in whom precise detection of changes in the heart and blood vessels can otherwise be unlikely.
This device enables the assessment of global longitudinal strain (GLS) of the myocardium (heart muscle), which can be done by means of newest generation technologies only. It helps in performing early diagnostics of heart muscle pathology, as well as is especially important for oncology patients, who use cardiotoxic therapy.
