Cardiology


 

Cardiology is the science of the heart, how it works and any disorders affecting it and its normal functioning. Cardiologists may specialise in such illnesses as myocardial infarction, cardiac insufficiency, or cardiac dysrhythmia.

To determine cardiac function and heart capacity, the cardiologist may rely on a number of specialised exams including an electrocardiogram, stress test or ultrasound, radiography, as well as additional tests involving Nuclear Medicine.

The Clinique des Grangettes is equipped with state-of-the-art technologies in this field.

Its technical platform in cardiology includes all necessary equipment for testing and follow-up of any pacemaker made anywhere in the world. The department’s intervention room for cardiac catheterisation is equipped for highly-specialised interventions such as stent insertion. The department’s associated Nuclear Medicine support service completes the array of techniques required for cardiology.
