The team of cardiac technicians and ASAR qualified echocardiogram Sonographers at NT Cardiac perform diagnostics such as ECG, Holter, BP Monitoring & Pace maker checks (Please go to diagnostics page for more information).
They perform cardiac ultrasounds using state-of-the-art equipment. These cardiac ultrasound images assist doctors with images for review, report and optimise treatment.
During a diagnosis, the echo sonographer will perform a through scan and decide if each image they create is dicarded or used for analysis and treatment. They even assist physicians interpret images as an when required and ensure proper records are kept of the procedures and results.
