Ecg Cardiac Mri
18 year old comes in with angina symptoms, they have, ecg, stress ecg, cardiac mri&mra, echo, 24h ecg. Would you suggest non-cardiac cause mimicking?
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?
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
Would structural heart disease in 22 yr old be ruled out by echo, ecg, cardiac mri, stress ecg, 24h ecg, cardiac coronary anatomy mra?
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.
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
Heart started doing pvcs like du dudu du dudu du du for 20-30 secs. Ecg, echo, cardiac MRI normal. Male 22. Got dysautonomia. Is this dangerous?
Generally not: Pvcs are common especially as one ages. Are you taking any meds that could play a role? ...Read more
Male 22. Get pvc's often. Had ecg, 24hecg, stress ecg, echo, cardiac mri/mra. Safe to ignore the pvc's? Its a quick skipped beat feeling.
PVC;s: Many a times this could be quite normal. As long as you have had a full work-up and evaluation. ...Read more
22 don't excercise much. Resting hr is sometimes between 52-60. Had ecg, echo, cardiac mri/mra, 24h holter, stress ecg, bloods. Is this normal?
Any symptoms?: Why you had all those test done? Seems to me that if above test were normal, then your heart it's in good shape. ...Read more
I got angina when I was 18 years old; now I am 22. I had stress ecg, ecg, 24 hour ecg, echo, cardiac mri, and cardiac mra done. My heart is structurally perfect. Is there any point in getting any other testing done at a young age?
No: Extensive workup, especially given age. If everything is ok anatomically, and no abnormal cardiac rhythm, consider non cardiac causes. ...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
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?
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
24h ecg showed 2 pvcs and 8 supraventricular ecoptics also some st sagging at times, what is that? 24 normal echo and cardiac MRI. Got dysautonomia
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
Would cardiac mri & mra without contrast, ecg, 48hr ecg, echocardiogram, treadmill ecg rule out the majority of heart problems in 25 yr old?
This is more than enough testing and most insurers would NOT cover all these tests!
Hope this helps. ..... ...Read more
Cardiac MRI, CTPA, EGC 's, echo's, Chest X-rays, PET scan, blood tests, ECG stress test. All these tests, no diagnosis. Could something been missed?
Resting hr 49-55 laid down during this period I get more PVCs and PACs? All heart tests normal, cardiac mri, echo, ecg, stress ECG etc
You are OK.: Some people have these Benign arrhythmias and never get sick from them. ...Read more
17 male. Chest pain when excersising. Had echo, ecg, stress ecg, 24 holter normal. Having MRI will this rule out cardiac pain? Must be cardiac?
Probably not Cardiac: Need more description of the chest pain, but, with all the above studies being normal, and considering your age, most probably your pain is of non-cardiac causes, most commonly musculoskeletal. Also exercise induced asthma can present as chest pain with exercise. A consultation with a lung specialist &/or trial of bronchodilators before exercise may be helpful. Best to discuss w ur pediatrician. ...Read more
When I sleep on my back I wake up in the morning with chest pain. Had echo, MRI cardiac, stress test and ecgs. Could this be back related?
Would you do CT angiogram in 18 yr old with exertion chest pain after ecg, stressecg, 24hecg, echo, cadiac mri, cardiac angiography, all normal?
CTA: I personally would be unlikely to recommend that radiation exposure in such a patient without a strong belief there was a risk/benefit preponderance to benefit. Without more information I wouldn't predict benefit given all the other studies. ...Read more
24yr old. Echo, ecg, 24hr ecg, heart mri + mri angiogram to rule out coronary anomalies. All normal. Would you say structurally normal even with pvcs?
Yes: I heart is considered structurally normal in the absence of structural disease. Arrhythmia does not constitute structural abnormality. A high PVC burden can result in decreased LV ejection fraction. At that point one would be considered to have a structurally abnormal heart. ...Read more
Chest Ct scan with trast, stress echo, 3d echicardiogram, cardiac MRI with contrast & Ekg and blood test would this rule out CHD all normal? Done at mayo.
You had a thorough: Evaluation for CHD, and if all of the tests were normal, you can be reassured at this time. Choose a healthy life style and your heart will continue to support you. ...Read more
Got acute myocarditis spring2013, autumn2013 normal echo & ecg. What is long-term prognosis? Should I got MRI to know for sure?
Male 22. When laid or sat still heart rate 50-60. If I move it goes to 60-75. Is this sign of good or bad? I've had ecg, echo, 24h ecg, mri.

Male 22. Heart rate in bed 47. Had ecg, 24h ecg, echo, mri, stress ecg. Can I have complete heart block?
Block: If you had complete atrioventricular block it would be quite evident on the routine ecg. If the ECG is normal, you don't have complete av block. ...Read more
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
