Cardiology exams

Arteriography
The arteriography is a radiological exam whose aim is to display the arteries. This exam requires the injection into the arteries of an impervious to X-rays product so as to really display the whole arterial network... More

Coronarography
The coronarography, literally meaning the “x-ray of the coronary arteries”, is an exam requiring to puncture an artery of a member in order to introduce a hose through which a product impervious to X-rays will be injected, directly into the coronary arteries... More

Doppler ultrasound of the arteries
The arteries are vessels bringing the blood from the heart to the organs. Their exploration with the help of the Doppler ultrasound permits to analyse their structure and the blood flow present in the arteries... More

Doppler ultrasound of the heart
The Doppler ultrasound of the heart is a completely painless exam which allows the cardiologist to give you a lot of information concerning your heart... More

Trans-oesophagus Doppler ultrasound of the heart
The trans-oesophagus Doppler ultrasound of the heart consists in placing a probe into the oesophagus and to look at the heart. This technique permits to get high quality pictures... More

Doppler ultrasound of the veins
The veins are vessels bringing back the blood from the organs to the heart. Their exploration with the help of the Doppler ultrasound permits to analyse their structure and the blood flow... More

The exercise test
An exercise test consists in recording cardiology parameters during an exercise. The measured parameters are the pulse, the B.P., and especially the electrocardiogram. This exam is very frequently carried out in cardiology, and its complications are very rare... More

Electrocardiogram
As every muscle, the heart is capable of giving out a certain quantity of electricity when it is in action. This electricity issued can be recorded by a device called an electrocardiograph... More

Electro-physiological exploration
An electro-physiological exploration aims at analysing the nervous tissue of the heart. This exploration requires to place an electric probe into the heart, which permits the recording of the different electric activities emitted in the cavities of the heart... More

Electrocardiogram Holter
The recording of the electric activity of the heart is called an electrocardiogram. The measure of the electrocardiogram can be achieved during a 24 hours period, or even more, with the help of an automatic measuring equipment called a holter... More

Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring
The blood pressure (B.P.) can be monitored for 24 hours with an automatic device. As a rule, this device takes the B.P. every 15 minutes in the day and every 30 minutes at night, knowing that these intervals can be adjusted differently... More

The implantation of a pacemaker
A cardiac pacemaker (or pacemaker) is aimed at sending an electric impulse to the heart, which provokes its contraction... More

Late ventricular potentials
The recording of the late ventricular potentials is implemented after the electrocardiogram whose signal will be amplified. This exam is aimed at assessing the risk of cardiac rhythm disorder (occurrence of a very serious tachycardia)... More

Scintigraphy of the heart
The scintigraphy of the heart permits to value the function of the cardiac muscle very well, and give information on its contraction capacities. Because of the high cost of this device, its availability is rather limited. Thus, it is often necessary to go to a big city to benefit from this exam... More
