Cardiovascular diseases are one of the most important topics in medicine, particularly in industrialised nations, This is due on the one hand to longer life expectancy and on the other to lifestyle factors such as stress and poor nutrition.
The cardiac SPECT (Single Photon Emission Computer Tomography) provides the optimum complement to conventional diagnostic methods in this field. Stress-related circulatory disorders can be demonstrated or eliminated efficiently, cost-effectively and harmlessly.
Other fields of application include suspected coronary heart disease, diagnosis of ischaemia and scars, atypical angina pectoris, discrepancies between subjective pain symptoms and ECG results, and progress evaluation following coronary artery bypass surgery and PTCA. Consequently, the cardiac SPECT is suitable both for initial diagnosis and also for clarification of existing results.
We’re happy to explain the use of these harmless diagnostic procedures to you, and discuss your options in relation to the clinical pathology of your illness, in a personal counselling session here at the DTZ in Berlin-Friedrichshain.
