  • Stress Echocardiography (treadmill & dobutamine)
  • Mobile Echocardiography for inpatients.
  • Echocardiography with bubble study to exclude septal defects/patent foramen ovale.
  • Four new echocardiogram machines, two stress echocardiography laboratories and new 3D/4D equipment provide the latest technology available.

Electrocardiography including

  • 12-lead Electrocardiograms
  • Stress Testing
  • Holter Monitoring
  • Event Recorders (loop and direct chest monitoring)
  • Measurement of Late Potentials (SAECG)
  • Carotid Artery Duplex Scans
  • 24-hour ambulatory BP monitoring.

Non-invasive cardiology tests are carried out under the supervision of Dr David Baron, Professor Michael Feneley AM, Professor Chris Hayward, Professor Anne Keogh, Dr Eugene Kotlyar, Assoc Professor David Muller, Dr Paul Roy, Dr Charles Thorburn, Assoc Professor Rajesh Subbiah and Dr Bruce Walker.
