Cardiology is the study and investigation of the structure, function and diseases of the heart. Consultant cardiologists at New Victoria Hospital use investigative techniques such as electrocardiography, echocardiography and coronary angiography to treat conditions of the heart. Cardiologists may also treat coronary artery disease by using a procedure known as angioplasty which involves dilating a narrow blood vessel in the heart via a catheter inserted in the arm or groin.
The most popular cardiology specialist procedures are:
- Blood Pressure Test
- CT Coronary angiography
Non-invasive cardiology tests at New Victoria Hospital are run by our Highly Specialised Cardiac Physiologist.
The cardiology specialist service includes:
Adult Transthoracic Echocardiograms
24/48 Hour ECG recorders with complete in-house analysis
7-14 day event monitors
24-hour blood pressure monitors with in-house analysis
12 lead resting ECG with interpretation
CT Calcium Scoring
CT Coronary Angio - offering peace of mind to patients with a family history of ischaemic heart disease.
To further support this new cardiac service, New Victoria Hospital has recently purchased and installed a state of the art ECHO package on our Phillips Epic 7 machine and is also looking to purchase the Phillips reporting system Excelera.
In the near future, at New Victoria Hospital we will also be offering TOE and Stress Echo.
