The London Centre for Advanced Cardiology offers a variety of heart scan. One of the main ones is the echocardiogram, a scan which gives detailed view of the structure of the heart, and can show how well a person’s heart is working. A pulse of high frequency sound is transmitted through the skin of the chest by placing a recorder on the chest wall. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off your heart to form an image of it.
The London Centre for Advanced Cardiology offers same day appointments for your echocardiogram in Harley Street.
Having an echocardiogram in Harley Street can help detect:
- Damage from a heart attack
- Heart failure
- Congenital heart disease
- Problems with the heart valves
LCAC offers a full report at the end of the test, and can organise a consultation with a specialist immediately should any concerns be raised.
