Echocardiography uses sound waves to produce an image of the heart and to see how it is functioning. Depending on the type of echocardiography test they use, doctors can learn about the size, shape, and movement of your heart muscle. This test can also show how the heart valves are working and how blood is flowing through your heart. Echocardiography can also give doctors information about your arteries.

Hemoglobin Test

Hemoglobin test is an examination that measures the total quantity of hemoglobin in the blood. The hemoglobin is the protein that transports the oxygen to the blood and is found in the red blood cells.


An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a routine test that is used to look at the electrical activity of the heartbeat. This procedure can tell your doctor a lot about your heart and how it is functioning.

This test can help your doctor learn more about your heart rhythm, the size and function of the chambers of your heart and your heart muscle. A healthy person’s electrocardiogram has a certain pattern. When there are changes in that pattern, your doctor can tell there is a problem with your heart.


Regular Stress Test

An exercise stress test is a common test that doctors use to diagnose coronary artery disease. The test helps doctors see how the heart performs during exercise.

Nuclear Stress Test

A nuclear stress test lets doctors see pictures of your heart while you are resting and shortly after you have exercised. The test provides information about the size of the heart’s chambers, how well the heart is pumping blood and whether the heart has any damaged muscle. It can also give the doctors information about your arteries and whether they may be narrowed or blocked because of coronary artery disease.



By means of this test is possible to determine the level of protein, blood, glucose, red and white blood cells and exclude evidence of urinary tract infections.
