Imaging Cardiology in Vellore 

Imaging cardiology, also known as cardiovascular imaging or cardiac imaging, is a specialized field within cardiology that focuses on using various imaging techniques. 

Echocardiography: Echocardiography is a non-invasive imaging technique that utilizes ultrasound waves to create real-time images of the heart.  

Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): Cardiac MRI employs radio waves and a strong magnetic field to generate detailed images of the heart.

Computed Tomography (CT) Angiography: CT angiography involves the use of X-rays and computer technology to create three-dimensional images of the heart and blood vessels.

Nuclear Cardiology: Nuclear cardiology utilizes small amounts of radioactive materials, known as radiotracers, to evaluate blood flow, heart function, and metabolism. 

Cardiac Catheterization and Angiography: Cardiac catheterization is an invasive procedure that involves inserting a thin tube (catheter) into the heart and blood vessels.  

Stress Testing: Stress testing evaluates the heart’s response to physical exercise or medications. It is often combined with imaging techniques such as echocardiography, nuclear imaging, or cardiac MRI to assess the heart’s function and detect any abnormalities under stress conditions. 

Intravascular Imaging: Intravascular imaging techniques, such as intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and optical coherence tomography (OCT), are used during cardiac catheterization procedures. 

Diagnosis and Evaluation: Our imaging cardiologist is skilled in interpreting imaging studies to accurately diagnose and evaluate cardiovascular conditions.
