Our state-of-the-art echocardiography laboratory, accredited under strict IAC standards, is located in beautiful patient-friendly facilities. We offer the newest technology for a full spectrum of imaging, Doppler, transesophageal, exercise and dobutamine stress echocardiograms and contrast echocardiograms, with new programs in peripheral arterial imaging and 3-dimensional echocardiographcy. Echo guidance for mitral valvuloplasty and selected electrophysiological procedures, including use of intracardiac ultrasound, is provided as needed. On-line two-way videocables connect the cardiothoracic operating rooms and the echocardiography review room.
The laboratory has particular expertise in a number of areas including: the Marfan syndrome, valvular heart disease, cardiac disease in pregnancy, cardiac disease in stroke, cardiac disease in diabetes and adult congenital heart disease
All studies undergo meticulous assessment of the size and function of the heart and aorta, following standards established by our world-class research and contributions to international guidelines. Our detailed reports provide referring physicians and their patients with a comprehensive assessment of cardiac chamber size and remodeling; valvular and adult congenital heart disease; and systolic and diastolic function.
Our Echocardiography laboratory is one of the busiest in the nation performing over 20,000 studies a year, which include over 1,000 transesophageal echocardiograms and over 500 stress echocardiograms. Our faculty members are leading experts in the field and have been involved in numerous clinical research studies. They also teach a structured curriculum for our cardiology fellows, including a series of didactic lectures and intensive "hands-on" training in the performance and interpretation of echocardiograms.
