Non-Invasive Cardiology

The BLK Heart Centre is a dedicated Heart Station with a proud recognition of a leading heart care medical institution. We are always on the pathway to make heart care a risk-ridden course of treatment for our patients. We offer the best of technology along with the highly-trained and progressively responsible teams of cardiologist surgeons, cardiologist technologists, physicians, assistants, researchers, and nutritionists which are ready to offer you the peak of scientifically advanced treatment in the realm of Non-invasive Cardiology under our state-of-the-art equipped Heart Station.

What Is Non-Invasive Cardiology

The non-invasive cardiology is a specialised unit of BLK Heart Centre that focuses on the detection and treatment of heart disease, using external tests rather than using invasive ways where instruments are inserted into the body to diagnose and evaluate cardiac disorders. A non-invasive cardiologist tries to prevent and manage heart problems through medications and lifestyle changes. The two major divisions of this unit are: 

Enhanced External Counter Pulsation Therapy (EECP)- Our Heart Centre reaches out to all the cases of cardiovascular problems and exploring the potentiality of successful treatment is our responsibility. We, here at BLK Super Specialty Hospital have a dedicated unit for EECP. EECP is a lifesaving choice for patients who are suffering from Refractory Stable Angina and Heart Failure patients, who are not eligible for treatment through even the advanced forms of drug therapy or revascularization procedures. 

Our approach towards patient is extensively based on our persistent high-rated cardiac care and non-stop medical services; even for EECP, we offer the standard techniques which are fertile in building new vessels around blocked arteries and facilitating blood flow to the heart. The cost of the entire procedure will not be too hard on your pockets, we promise you that your treatment with EECP will be economical and yet successful.

Nuclear Cardiology- Primarily, we only offer safe and medically approved approaches of Nuclear Cardiology. Secondly, our reputation in this field is built with our constant maintenance of working with the principal guidelines of the highest authorities in the field. To provide a clear assessment, our heart station has a special diagnostic unit for Nuclear Cardiology which is equipped with:

  • Te99 SPECT Nuclear Cardiac Scans
  • PET Scans for Myocardial Viability Studies
  • Cardiac MRI
  • Renal Perfusion Scans 
  • MIBG Scans for Pheochromocytoma Detection

Our approach in Nuclear Cardiology is detailed with religious compliance to the safety standards, we have a team of highly trained experts who have years of on-hands experience. 

What Are The Conditions Diagnosed Under Non-Invasive Cardiology

Some of the major heart conditions that can be diagnosed under non-invasive cardiology unit are mostly related to:

  • Heart failure
  • Heart and valve disease
  • Blocked blood vessels
  • Pulmonary artery disease
  • Congenital heart conditions
  • Heart attack tissue damage

What Are The Diagnoses Services We Provide Under Non-Invasive Cardiology

Primarily, we introduce a detailed diagnostic assessment before every cardiovascular case to prompt an early diagnosis of the problem through:

  • 2D / 3D Echo, Color Doppler
  • 2D / 3D TEE (Transesophageal Echocardiography)
  • Strain Rate Imaging
  • Contrast 2D Echo / TEE
  • TMT, Exercise and Dobutamine Stress Echocardiogram
  • Dyssynchrony Assessment Echo
  • Holter Examination, Ambulatory BP Monitoring, External Loop Recorders
  •  Vascular Doppler
  • 128 Slice 
  • CT Coronary Angiography
  • HUTT

These highly precise tests are an addition to the other standard procedures such as X-rays, MRIs, and blood tests. The results are available as soon as possible and proper care throughout the diagnosis is an essential element of our cardiac care.
In addition to the 24*7 medical services and an on-duty staff for any help, we extend our expertise beyond the standard procedures of Non-invasive Cardiology for cases. Our Heart Centers offer proven professionalism in EECP and Nuclear Cardiology with a specialised team of experts for a constant monitor on each step. These non-invasive diagnostic tests are effective alternatives for patients when the usual methodologies of non-invasive cardiology do not provide the best results.

Are There Any Complications Involved

Since the unit offers non-invasive ways of performing tests, therefore, a patient doesn’t encounter any kind of risk that is associated with the diagnosis procedures. However, some of the rarest risks that a patient can experience are: 

  • Fatigue
  • Headache 
  • Dizziness (generally mild)
  • Muscle aches
  • Skin irritation (such as chafing around the cuffs)
  • Sore leg (where pressure has been applied)
  • Allergic reaction to radioactive dye during nuclear scans
  • The risk of radiation exposure in young subjects and women 
  • Allergies to iodine used in CMR and CCT testing

However, a patient must inform the doctor immediately if any of these symptoms cannot be described as mild or transitory.
