Heart Care Imaging offers comprehensive solutions related to every aspect of non-invasive cardiac, vascular, and general ultrasound laboratories.  At HCI, our approach is to gauge the scope of the desired program, acquire the appropriate technologies, find the most qualified healthcare professionals, and insure the laboratory runs seamlessly for the providers and their patients.

 

Echocardiography

Echocardiography has become routinely used in the diagnosis, management, and follow-up of patients with suspected or known heart disease. It is one of the most widely used diagnostic tests in cardiology. It provides a wealth of helpful information, including the size and shape of the heart, pumping capacity, and the location and extent of any structural pathology.

 

Vascular Ultrasound

Vascular ultrasound is routinely used to assess patency and possible obstruction of arteries, diagnose the presence of deep vein thrombosis, and determine extent and severity of venous insufficiency.  Additionally vascular ultrasound is used to obtain and record vascular information such blood pressure, changes in limb volume, oxygen saturation, cerebral circulation, peripheral circulation, and abdominal circulation.

 

General Ultrasound

General ultrasound is used to visualize internal body structures such as tendons, muscles, joints, and organs. Its aim is to find a source of a disease or to exclude pathology.  General ultrasound provides images in real-time, is portable so it can be brought to the bedside and is substantially lower in cost.
