An echocardiogram is a test that uses sound waves to create a moving picture of the heart. The picture is much more detailed than a plain x-ray image and involves no radiation exposure.
TRANSTHORACIC ECHOCARDIOGRAM (TTE)
TTE is the type of echocardiogram that most people will have.
- A trained sonographer performs the test, and then a heart doctor interprets the results.
- An instrument called a transducer that releases high-frequency sound waves is placed on your ribs near the breast bone and directed toward the heart. Other images will be taken underneath and slightly to the left of your nipple and in the upper abdomen.
- The transducer picks up the echoes of sound waves and transmits them as electrical impulses. The echocardiography machine converts these impulses into moving pictures of the heart.
- Pictures can be two-dimensional or three-dimensional, depending on the part of the heart being evaluated and the type of machine.
- A Doppler echocardiogram uses a probe to record the motion of blood through the heart.
An echocardiogram allows doctors to see the heart beating, and to see the heart valves and other structures of the heart.
Occasionally, your lungs, ribs, or body tissue may prevent the sound waves and echoes from providing a clear picture of heart function. If so, the sonographer may inject a small amount of liquid (contrast) through an IV to better see the inside of the heart.
Very rarely, more invasive testing using special echocardiography probes may be needed.
TRANSESOPHAGEAL ECHOCARDIOGRAM (TEE)
The back of your throat is numbed and a scope is inserted down your throat.
On the end of the scope is a device that sends out sound waves. An experienced technician will guide the scope down to the lower part of the esophagus. It is used to get a clearer echocardiogram of your heart.
An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a medical test that detects cardiac (heart) abnormalities by measuring the electrical activity generated by the heart as it contracts. The machine that records the patients ECG is called an electrocardiograph.
The electrocardiograph records the electrical activity of the heart muscle and displays this data as a trace on a screen or on paper. This data is then interpreted by a medical practitioner.
ECGs from normal, healthy hearts have a characteristic shape. Any irregularity in the heart rhythm or damage to the heart muscle can change the electrical activity of the heart so that the shape of the ECG is changed. A doctor may recommend an ECG for patients who may be at risk of heart disease because there is a family history of heart disease, or because they smoke, are overweight, or have diabetes, high cholesterol or high blood pressure.
Oncology is the branch of medicine that researches, identifies, and treats tumors, which is a term for cancer. The main areas of oncology are radiation, which is concerned with radiation treatment, or radiotherapy; surgical, which is comprised of surgeons who specialize in tumor removal; medical, which deals with cancer drugs, including chemotherapy; and interventional, which involves interventional radiologists who specialize in minimally invasive image-guided tumor therapy.
Diagnosis and treatment
Oncologists must first diagnose a cancer. Diagnosis is usually carried out via biopsy, endoscopy, X-ray, CT scanning, MRI scanning, PET scanning, ultrasound or other radiological methods. Nuclear medicine can also be used to diagnose cancer, as can blood tests or tumor markers.
Palliative care is also often used by oncologists to treat pain and other symptoms of cancer.
Some of the most common areas affected by cancer include the colon and rectum, breast, prostate and lung.
Endocrinology is the medical discipline dealing with disorders of body's chemistry, hormones etc. Besides the most common endocrine disorder diabetes, medical conditions treated by endocrinologists include: Lipids: cholesterol and blood fat disorders; Obesity: weight management; Thyroid: hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, goiter, thyroid nodules, thyroid cancer; Bone: osteoporosis / osteopenia, hyperparathyroidism, hyperparathyroidism, vitamin D deficiency; Pituitary: pituitary adenoma, galactorrhea, hypopituitarism, diabetes insipid us; Adrenal: adrenal adenoma, hyperadrenalism, hypoadrenalism, steroid use; Gonadal Disease: polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), hirsuitism, hormone related infertility, hypogonadism, Turners Syndrome; others: hypoglycemia etc.
TMT stands for Tread Mill Test.
It is a screening tool to test the effect of exercise on the heart.
In this test patient is made to walk on a treadmill and electrical activity of the heart is measured with an ECG, and blood pressure recordings are taken every few minutes. As per a standard protocol patient is made to walk till target heart rate is reached, but if the patient develops chest discomfort or ECG changes the test is terminated.
- To evaluate for coronary artery disease
- To evaluate for worsening angina
- To identify rhythm changes that may occur during exercise
- To evaluate the significance of valvular stenosis
The test is usually positive when the coronary stenos is >70%.
Endoscopy is a diagnostic procedure which is used to examine the inside cavities of the human body. The Maruthi Hospital has an endoscopy department where many gastrointestinal (GI) diseases are diagnosed and treated.
A gastrointestinal endoscopy is one of the most common endoscopy procedures performed at the Maruthi Hospital, where the team of highly trained medical staff looks inside the patients digestive tract through the usage of a flexible fiber optic tube and a tiny camera.
The thought of having a long tube passed through your entire body is not a pleasant thought. However, with the advancement of technology, endoscopy procedures are becoming more comfortable, and also more effective for the diagnostic process.
