Echocardiography and Color Doppler
Echocardiography and Color Doppler has become one of the primary modalities in the investigation of modern day cardiology. It demonstrates anatomical details that are required to diagnose children suffering from congenital and valvular heart diseases. It also provides physiological information which is essential in the evaluation of heart diseases in adults suffering from high blood pressure, coronary artery disease and cardiomyopathies. Also accessories to study blood flow in arteries and veins (peripheral Doppler), transoesophageal evaluation of the rear chambers of the heart (transoesophageal Echocardiography) and for diagnosing deffects in unborn infants (feotal echocardiography). N.M. Wadia Institute was the first to bring Echocardiography to the non-government sectors of Poona. Now, by acquiring a HP AGILENT SONOS 4500, we continue to keep pace with the latest in ultra sound technology.
One of the most effective and economic ways of diagnosing cardiac ischaemia is the Treadmill Stress Test. The Institute today has a Mac 5000, one of the most sophisticated stress tests machines available.
By Advanced Medical Products with a micro recorder and blood pressure recording. We offer real time Ambulatory Holter ECG and blood pressure monitoring system that assess coronary artery disease and the control of blood pressure. This combined unit was introduced for the first time in the country by the Institute.
Exercise Thallium scanning facilities are available on referral to an associate nuclear medicine center, which help to confirm the diagnoses in a variety of heart diseases.
