Cardiac diagnostic tests
Cardiac diagnostic tests can be classified as non-invasive or invasive. A thorough medical examination should always start with non-invasive examination. This method means that by using modern contemporary medical technology, it is possible to gather precise information about the condition of the circulatory system and the heart without injuring the body surface.
In most cases non-invasive testing is sufficient for accurate diagnosis, while patient care could be managed via lifestyle counseling and medication. Nevertheless, in some rare cases invasive testing may also be necessary (cardiac catheterization, electrophysiology, etc.). Furthermore, some of the clinical conditions may require surgical procedures.
In our practice only non-invasive diagnostic tests are used. Therefore, in our medical routine all cardiac examinations are completely safe and painless. If intervention is needed, we may refer our patients to our cooperating fellow cardiologists performing the invasive tests and, if necessary, also to heart surgeons.
