Diagnosis

Medical professionals at Dr.Muthus Hospitals offer a comprehensive range of diagnoses and testing. To check the structural heart failure it is important to follow a series of testing. If you were not born with a congenital heart abnormality, the doctors at Dr.Muthus Hospitals can identify it through a physical exam. They will also ask you questions about your medical history, symptoms, and general health. Given are the tests and diagnosis conducted here-

An echocardiogram is examined to measure the echo of the heart. This is the simplest technique to determine how well the heart is working. An echo test creates an image of your heart’s structure and movement using sound waves (ultrasound). It allows our physician to assess how the heart is pumping. It also looks at the size and the valves in your heart.

Treatment Tests at Dr.Muthus Hospitals

A thorough examination of the heart is also conducted by the following methods.

  • Imaging tests - They are performed with the help of X-rays and are used in a range of imaging procedures that involve injecting a particular chemical into your circulation. The graphics depict blood flow as well as the structure and movement of the heart. This allows your healthcare experts to determine how well your heart is pumping.

  • Cardiac MRI- It is a test that employs radio waves and strong magnets to create images of your heart and blood vessels while they are beating. The test creates several images that are merged to form detailed graphics or movies while you lie on an exam table with a magnet.

  • Right heart catheterisation- A long, thin tube is placed into a blood artery, generally in the neck or groyne, for this test. The catheter is inserted into the heart, where it can measure pressures in the heart and the artery that leads to the lungs. Heart output and blood oxygen levels can also be measured with the catheter.

  • Angiogram- In this procedure, a catheter is placed into a blood vessel and threaded through the vessel to the heart. Through the catheter, a dye is injected, and special x-rays are used to follow the flow of blood to your heart muscle.

  • Stress test- This test measures how your heart reacts to stress. Exercise (on a treadmill or stationary cycle) or medication can put a strain on your heart. Using an EKG and other imaging, our doctor evaluates your vital signs and monitors your heart's response during this stressful moment.
