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. It is one of many diagnostic tests used in cardiology. More specifically, coronary catheterization recognizes occlusion, stenosis, thrombosis or aneurismal enlargement of the walls of the coronary arteries; heart chamber size; heart muscle contraction...
The heart is a part of the circulatory system, and is considered one of the most vital organs of the human body. It is about the size of a fist, has a mass of approximately 300 grams, and its main function is to contract and produce enough pressure to circulate blood throughout the body. 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...
