Mri (Definition)

Mri or magnetic resonance imaging is one of the more recently developed imaging modalities available to physicians. It uses powerful magnets to generate images. There is no ionizing radiation which is a major advantage over many other modalities. Mri is the best imaging exam that we have for most soft tissue and joint related problems. There are radiologists ...Read more

If an 18yr old had PVCs every few days on and off and had echocardiogram, ecg, stress ecg, cardiac MRI and 24h ECG would you say the heart is normal?

If an 18yr old had PVCs every few days on and off and had echocardiogram, ecg, stress ecg, cardiac MRI and 24h ECG would you say the heart is normal?

Tests: If an 18y/o had all those tests and they all were entirely normal, there would be little likelihood of signficant cardiac abnormality present. ...Read more

22 had ecg, stress ecg, cardiac mri/mra, 24h ecg, echo. For chest pain when excercising. Does this rule out congenital coronary anomalies?

22 had ecg, stress ecg, cardiac mri/mra, 24h ecg, echo. For chest pain when excercising. Does this rule out congenital coronary anomalies?

You have already: Undergone many of the tests to exclude any ischemia to heart muscle, but the only way to rule out any congenital coronary artery anomalies is by angiogram. Talk with your cardiologist, but chance of finding any significant anomalies seem small to me with all negative results so far. ...Read more

22 chest pain exersise since 18. Had ecg, stress ecg, cardiac mri/mra, echo, 24h ecg. Should I have CT angiogram? No family history.

22 chest pain exersise since 18. Had ecg, stress ecg, cardiac mri/mra, echo, 24h ecg. Should I have CT angiogram? No family history.

No: Your stress test has been normal. At your age it is unlikely that your pain is related to coronary heart disease therefore no need for ct angiography. ...Read more

My 24h ecg showed episodes of high take off, what is this? Is it normal? Does it cause pvcs? Echo normal, normal ecg Normal, cardiac mri normal

What you have is: ..."benign early depolarization." Benign is the operative word here b/c there's no impact on your cardiac health. It's considered a normal variation (like red hair & freckles). It means that your heart's electrical system resets itself after each beat more quickly that average. This causes corresponding changes in the EKG. No worries here! Dr. Anne ...Read more

Since 18 chest pain wen excersise. Had ecg, stress ecg, echo, cardiac mri, 24 hour ecg, BP normal. Now 22 what can this be! Strange angina!

Possibly no: By this point I can tell you that your probability of having ischemic heart disease is very low. Prinzmetal angina, an spasm of the coronary arteries without significant coronary blockage, should be in the differential but probably was already r/o by your doctors. Acid reflux can give you pressure pain and chest wall pain due to costochondritis if you lift weight at work or at exercise. ...Read more

Chest pain exercise goes when stop almost instant. Had ecg, stress ecg, echo, cardiac mri/mra, 24h ecg. Age started 18 nw 22. Should I have CT angio?

Something else?: Have you been evaluated for asthma/ reactive airway disease? If all the cardiac tests have been negative, maybe there is something else causing your pain. Ct angio would likely be redundant at this point. ...Read more

When is bradycardia an issue after ecg, 24h ecg, echo, cardiac angiogram, cardiac mri. Hr sometimes 52 resting or resting in bed 48. Age 22 male.

When is bradycardia an issue after ecg, 24h ecg, echo, cardiac angiogram, cardiac mri. Hr sometimes 52 resting or resting in bed 48. Age 22 male.

It's an issue if u: Have symptoms along with it such as dizziness, feeling of passing out, weakness, headache, chest pain etc. People who do strenuous exercise including athletes have slower heart rate as their heart is more efficient than average individual. Though their heart pump slower, the amount of blood coming out of the heart from each heart beat is greater. Follow up with your cardiologist. Take care! ...Read more

With repeated ECG, holter monitors, ECHO, cardiac MRI and stress tests would long QT syndrome be obvious to diagnose?

With repeated ECG, holter monitors, ECHO, cardiac MRI and stress tests would long QT syndrome be obvious to diagnose?

Ecg finding: Long qt is an ECG finding, would see it on an ECG, or holter; sometimes situational such as exercise, and a treadmill ecg would pick it up. I don't know of any particular echo or MRI findings per se. ...Read more

Indications for an ICD? I had a 15 beat run of self-terminating polymorphic VT. Normal cardiac MRI with Non family history & normal baseline ECG.

Indications for an ICD? I had a 15 beat run of self-terminating polymorphic VT. Normal cardiac MRI with Non family history & normal baseline ECG.

Cardiologist: A cardiologist is best qualified to evaluate and advise you as well as order outpatient holter monitor, cardiac stress test, magnesium and potassium blood levels and echocardiogram. If these are all normal or negative for recurrent ventricular irritability, no treatment or maybe a beta blocker may be prescribed. If frequent vpb's are seen, an cardiac ep specialist will be recommended for evaluatio ...Read more

Short PR interval & early repolorasation pattern on ECG. Multiple runs of NSVT. Cardiac MRI ruled out structural heart disease. What can this be?

Short PR interval & early repolorasation pattern on ECG. Multiple runs of NSVT. Cardiac MRI ruled out structural heart disease. What can this be?

Abnormal EKG: Should be evaluated by an electrophysiologist. If you have a short PR and PSVT - rule out re entrant tachycardias. You need a specialist evaluation that deals only with electrical problems of the heart. ...Read more

Electrocardiogram (Definition)

Electrocardiogram (ecg, ekg) is a print-out of the electrical forces detected by electrodes on the chest wall, as electricity travels through the heart with each heart beat. The electrodes are placed in different positions, and each position "sees" the electrical activity of the heart from its own vantage point. Abnormalities in signal detected at chest surface ...Read more
