Echocardiography, Cardiac CT and MRI

Echocardiography, Cardiac CT and MRI

Echocardiography employs ultrasound waves to create heart images, detecting deformities, valve/chamber issues, and blood flow. It aids in pediatric cases, valvular disease diagnosis, and includes foetal echocardiography. Cardiac CT uses X-rays from different angles to construct 3D heart images, assessing arteries, valves, and causes of chest pain. Cardiac MRI employs radio waves and magnets for non-invasive heart scans, revealing chambers, valves, muscles, and blood motion. This method, under continuous research, offers rapid expansion of emerging techniques for precise diagnostics.
