Diagnostic Test for Heart Disease

Every heartbeat causes an electrical wave or impulse enabling the heart to pump blood to other parts of the body. The test is recognized as electrocardiogram and abbreviated as EKG or EKG. It enables the detection of the activity of electrical waves of the heart. The length of the waves enables the doctor to understand the activity of the heart. It measures whether the heartbeat is irregular, normal, or fast.

A coronary angiogram is similar to CT angiography in using X-ray to record images of the heart. It uses a method of injecting a dye into the coronary blood vessels. The angiograms are the recorded images of the blood vessels. This is a test for diagnosing heart conditions. A doctor recommends an angiogram in case an individual experiences pain in the jaw, arm, or neck, which remains undetected by other tests.

Immediate diagnosis of heart diseases provides the individual sufficient time to take action. The growing need to maintain a healthier lifestyle is associated with the risk of cardiac arrests.
