The equipment of the FCV Cardiovascular Diagnostic Imaging Unit allows the acquisition of images with very high temporal and spatial resolutions.
Accurate diagnoses of cardiovascular pathologies make it easier for the members of our team of specialists to optimally handle each of our patients.
This technology allows us to have active protocols in different areas that include Colciencias-sponsored protocols, particularly in patients with cardiomyopathy due to Chagas disease. We also work actively with other sub-specialties, particularly electrophysiology, heart failure, and echocardiography, optimizing the diagnosis of cardiovascular pathologies and generating our research protocols.
“We have digital X-ray equipment with high image quality and low doses of radiation”.
We have two X-ray units, one fixed (Diagnostic Imaging Service), and a portable team to provide the required services in our different care units.
Our computerized tomography equipment has 64 slices that allow studies to be performed quickly and with excellent image quality. It also has special techniques to reduce the dose of radiation absorbed in susceptible tissues such as the thyroid and retina.
It is the study of initial choice for diseases of the central nervous system, trauma, cancer, pulmonary pathology, and cardiovascular diseases. It precisely defines bone structures and also allows for 3D studies. It also has the ability to perform simple and contrast studies and to guide interventional procedures.
