Coordination between the diagnostic imaging area and the clinical area is one of the most innovative features of the new unit, since the same team performs the tests and deals with the patient at the appointment. This allows earlier detection and early treatment of cardiovascular diseases (CVD), which are the main cause of death worldwide.

Analiza’s cardiovascular imaging unit includes not only conventional and advanced cardiovascular imaging techniques, but also monographic units in the area that contextualise test results and advance towards personalised medicine.

This unit performs an important task, which starts with prevention and post-intervention follow-up in heart disease and cardiovascular diseases through outpatient echocardiography and vascular ultrasound, and continues with the commitment to innovation and investment in state-of-the-art technology, for patients diagnosed with these diseases. An example of this is the use of Cardio-CT in planning cardiovascular surgery procedures or Cardio-MR, which is the test of choice for studying myocardial diseases and assessing damage after an acute heart attack.

Compared to other existing units in the sector, one of the distinguishing features is that it not only has all the diagnostic imaging techniques available, but that these are also linked to the valve unit and the hereditary heart disease unit focused on myocardial diseases. Coordination between these units and the cardiovascular imaging unit guarantees personalised diagnosis and treatment for patients with cardiovascular pathology. 

This will be performed by a clinical cardiologist who is also a specialist in cardiovascular imaging. In this way, they will be able to have an overall vision, allowing them to establish the best attitude in the field of cardiovascular prevention or in the diagnosis and monitoring of cardiovascular diseases.

The best way of fighting cardiovascular diseases is through prevention. At Analiza we have created a set of tests which encompasses this complete prevention study which is composed of: diagnostic cardiology consultation, ECG, echocardiogram, vascular echo and cardiological profile analysis. Carrying out this study will allow the specialist to put the result into context with the test results and progress towards personalised medicine. This study is recommended for people older than 45 years old, people with altered cholesterol levels, those with family histories of cardiological problems related to the heart’s arteries and everyone who wants to learn about the state of their cardiovascular system before starting intense physical activity.
