Echocardiography area

Echocardiography makes it possible to determine the structure and function of the human heart. We offer the patients entrusted to us a comprehensive examination of their heart, which is based on decades of experience and is carried out using the latest technology and assessed according to the latest state of knowledge.

Our team carries out over 17,000 echocardiographic examinations a year. These include transthoracic and transesophageal echoes, contrast echoes, stress echoes (dobutamine, bicycle, treadmill), and imaging support for procedures in the hybrid operating theater. We use 1-, 2- and 3-dimensional methods and determine not only the size and function but also the deformation of all cardiac cavities. We attach great importance to a comprehensive assessment by evaluating the patient’s heart in their health context.
