We provide professional support in Echocardiography.
It is the process of examining the heart’s internal
structure and function with the help of sound waves (ultrasonography). Commonly
used, echocardiography allows the doctor to see the heart beating and the blood
pumping process easily. Heart diseases can be seen with echocardiography.
The doctor may use echocardiography in the following cases:
For problems with the valves and heart chambers of the heart,
To understand if heart problems, shortness of breath or chest pain are the cause,
It is used to detect defects in the heart before birth.
Transthoracic (superficial) Echo Cardiograph: in this
method, gel is applied to the sonography device (transducer). The sonography
device is guided by pressing the patient’s heart in different parts of the body.
In this application, x-ray lights are not used. The transducer records heart
sounds and reflects the images on the screen.
Trans esophageal echocardiography: the doctor may ask for
more detail and a clear picture. In this case, trans esophageal echocardiography
is recommended. The patient is given anesthetics to the throat and is provided
to numb and relax. A flexible tube is placed in the throat to reach the
esophagus. The converter records the sound waves in the heart, giving the image
to the screen in detail.
This method, also known as Doppler ultrasound, is used to
measure the heart’s contraction and various relaxation movements in the most
accurate and healthy way. The most sensitive and new technological method. The
images obtained in this method are colorful and detailed.
Stress echocardiography: some heart problems, especially
the muscles that supply blood to the coronary arteries, occur only in time of
physical activity. Stress echocardiography is also used for coronary artery
problems. The patient is given medication to speed up the exercise method or
heart rate. Every action of the patient’s heart is recorded by this method.
Changes in heart size are determined by this method.
Heart valves, weakened or damaged heart valves, high blood pressure or enlarged
heart chambers, can easily be seen and treated.
Eco kardiyografi which are obtained from the measurements
of blood pumped out of a filled ventricle with each heartbeat heart failure
defines the percentage by clearly showing that the disease early.
The risk of heart attack is determined by this method, it
helps to reduce the risk.
Heart valves provide adequate blood flow images are
obtained. Abnormal areas in the heart will easily be seen in the treatment rate
Most patients can return to their social life right after
echocardiography. If the Test results are normal, no treatment is needed.
