Clinical cardiology is the branch of internal medicine that deals with malfunctions and disorders related to heart in humans and animals. The field includes diagnosis and treatment of heart failure, congenital heart defects, coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease and electrophysiology. It is manly dependent on the circulatory system or circulatory process also called the cardiovascular system. In circulation process, Blood carries oxygen and nutrients from your heart to the rest of the body through a complex network of arteries, arterioles, and capillaries whereas the deoxygenated blood is carried back to your heart through venules and veins. The physicians who are specialized in this field are called cardiologists. The Cardiothoracic surgeons or Cardiac surgeons are the ones who are specialized in cardiology from general surgery.  Clinical Cardiology plays a major role in coordination of research in medical diagnosis, cardiovascular medicine and cardiovascular surgery.

Interventional Cardiology – is the branch of cardiology that handles with the specific Cather based techniques to various structural heart diseases, non-surgical procedures for treating cardiovascular diseases. Often, to avoid the need for surgery a thin, flexible tube called catheter is used to repair damaged vessels or other heart structures diseases. In addition, for an acute myocardial infarction the procedure involved in interventional cardiology for acts as a best standard of care. It involves in elimination of clots from coronary arteries and implementation of stents and balloons through a small hole made in a major artery. Coronary intervention will remain the dominant procedure for the interventional cardiologist, which leads to the development of new procedures in coming decade in proportional to the population growth. It is expected that interventional cardiology craves a new attention in the growth of valvular heart disease intervention.

Pediatric Cardiology – branch of cardiology which involves in the treatment of childhood disorder includes both the heart and lungs problems. A person who had received extensive training in diagnosing the pediatric cardiopulmonary disease are called pediatric cardiologist. Pediatric cardiology aims in preventing both the congenital and acquired human heart diseases in children, infants and adolescents. It offers a new platform to educate the next generation physician in pediatric cardiology. Cardiac catheterization technique is also involved in pediatric cardiology.

Nuclear Cardiology- “non-invasive diagnosing studies involved in cardiology to analyze myocardial blood flow, to determine the pumping mechanism of the heart and to visualize the size and location of heart after the consequences of heart attack or any heart diseases”. Different Imaging techniques are used in nuclear cardiology to perform the assessment in a heart patient. Among those, the myocardial perfusion imaging is the commonly used one.

Cardiac Imaging: Cardiac imaging is the advanced technique in visualizing the heart structure, diagnosing cardiac blood flow for evaluation or to guide cardiac procedures via techniques including Endoscopy, Radionuclide imaging and Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Tomography or Ultrasonography. Both invasive and Non-invasive techniques are used. Over the last decade, as a result of technological advancement non-invasive cardiac tests that physicians can order has increased tremendously.

  • Track 5-1Invasive cardiac imaging
  • Track 5-2Non-invasive cardiac imaging
  • Track 5-3Clinical uses of cardiac imaging
  • Track 5-4Cardiac MRI

Heart Diseases:  Heart diseases are also called as cardiovascular diseases which in turn include the conditions that affect the mechanism, function or structure of heart. Heart diseases are may be classified into congenital and acquired heart diseases. Most of the cases, it is considered to be an acquired heart diseases. Common cardiovascular diseases are called coronary artery diseases such as angina and myocardial infarction It also includes:

  • Track 6-1Congenital-heart disease
  • Track 6-2Ischematic heart disease
  • Track 6-3Valvular disease
  • Track 6-4Atherosclerosis
  • Track 6-5Arrhythmia
  • Track 6-6Diseases of the pericardium

Echocardiography is referred to as cardiac echo produced by the ultrasound waves which in turn create the images of the heart. This is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer. The device receives the echoes of the sound waves as they bound with the different parts of your heart. These echoes tend to create moving pictures of your heart that can be seen on a video screen. It helps to detect cardiomyopathies, such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, dilated cardiomyopathy, and many others.

Intravascular Ultrasound: “A specially designed catheter with an ultrasound probe attached to the end used as a standard methodology to create medical imaging”. Ultrasound equipment is attached at the proximal end of the catheter to computerize. Piezoelectric or CMUT is one of the applications of ultrasound technology used to visualize the inner walls of blood vessels in living individuals.

  • Track 8-2Percutaneous coronary intervention
  • Track 8-3Coronary artery bypass graft surgery

 It aims to study the anatomy of heart through 3D imaging in persons who are exposed complex heart diseases. 3D imaging helps in providing the efficient images of heart’s structure and location and thereby helps to plan and execute the surgical procedures. It is one of the advanced technology in which heart patients including infants, children and adolescents are diagnosed using non-invasive cardiac imaging techniques. Computed tomography acts as a major source of 3D imaging.
