Cardiac imaging

Cardiac magnetic resonance tomography and computed tomography are available methods of cardiac imaging diagnostics.

  • Echocardiography: Differentiated non-invasive diagnostics can be performed using transthoracic and transesophageal 2D and 3D echocardiography, stress echocardiography and contrast chocardiography.
  • MRI: Cardiac magnetic resonance imagining is performed together with the Department of Radiology / Nuclear Medicine. It allows the visualization of circulatory disorders and scar tissue in the heart muscle.
  • Cardiac CT: Cardiac computed tomography is performed by the Department of Radiology / Nuclear Medicine. It enables non-invasive imaging of coronary vessels.
  • Myocardial scintigraphy: Nuclear medical examinations of the heart such as myocardial scintigraphy at rest and under load are carried out by the Department of Radiology / Nuclear Medicine. Myocardial scintigraphy can be used to diagnose circulatory disorders of the heart and scars.
