CARDIAC (HEART) SCREENING

Upgrade Your Quality of Life

Cardiac screening consists of detailed physical examinations and tests to determine if your heart is functioning healthily, and provides suitable lifestyle changes.

Peace of Mind

The screening tests are designed to detect early features of heart or vascular disease in individuals who may not yet have any symptoms, thereby allowing for earlier diagnosis and treatment.

Cardiac Screening

Cardiac Screening identifies people with evidence of heart disease (such as blockages in the arteries supplying blood to the heart) or conditions that can increase the risk of heart disease (such as diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol levels). The results help the cardiologist estimate the risk of a heart attack and recommend specific treatments. The tests take little time to perform and can give you peace of mind or a timely wake-up call to change your lifestyle before a serious heart problem occurs.

Highly recommended for people above 40 years who wants a complete screen for cardiovascular and cancer risks. It detects risk factors like diabetes, hypertension or high cholesterol levels, which can lead to coronary artery disease.

Genetic Testing for Inherited Cardiac Disease
Many different types of heart disease can be inherited. Common conditions such as high blood pressure and coronary artery disease blood certainly run in families but likely result from a number of different genetic changes that individually have a subtle effect, but work collectively in a complex manner and influenced by other modifiable risks (including smoking, diabetes, cholesterol metabolism) to cause disease. In these situations, genetic testing is not yet available.
