The most common type of echocardiogram is performed transthoracic, meaning the image is taken through a probe against the chest. A TTE does not involve radiation and is a very safe procedure. A cardiac sonographer will put a gel on the patient's chest and move the transducer around different areas, including directly anterior to the breastbone, inferior and lateral to the right...
A coronary angiography, also known as a coronary catheterization, is a procedure that gives both visual and tactical access to coronary circulation and blood filled chambers of the heart for both diagnostic and interventional purposes.

The top of the heart where the veins and arteries all connect is called the base. The pointed lower tip of the heart is called the apex. The coronary sulcus is a deep groove that runs horizontally across the...

How it is Performed The stress is created by increasing the workload on the cardiac system. This can be accomplished by...
