The key to preventing cardiovascular disease is to manage your risk factors, such as high blood pressure, high total cholesterol or high blood glucose. But it’s difficult to know which risk factors you have. Cardiovascular investigations can help detect risk factors in their earliest stages.
Your cardiologist may request a Cardiovascular System evaluation that will include the following investigations:
- Echocardiogram using US+/- dobutamine stress
- ECG trace
- 24 hour ECG monitoring (Holter)
- 24 hour BP monitoring
- Treadmill stress test
- Cardiac CT Scan – For more details, please click here
