Cardio Vascular Diseases - Screening, Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention

 

What is Cardiovascular Disease?

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the term used to cover all diseases that affect the heart and circulatory system, including coronary heart disease, heart attack, angina, stroke, Deep Vein thrombosis and peripheral arterial diseases.

The common factor with these conditions is the build-up of atheroma – small fatty lumps that develop on the walls of the body's arteries (blood vessels), causing them to narrow and thus making it harder for the artery to carry blood and oxygen to the heart.

Cardiovascular disease is the most common cause of death in the UK accounting for around a third of all deaths. Despite best efforts from health authorities to tackle cardiovascular disease, it continues to affect and claim the lives of thousands of British men and women each year.  Over 140,000 people died from heart disease and stroke in the UK every year.

Health checks for cardiovascular disease, known as vascular health checks, play a vital role in helping to predict and prevent the development of heart disease and stroke. Through these preventative screening tests, doctors are able to identify patients who are at high risk of vascular disease and provide support and advice to help them reduce or manage that risk.

Ultrasound Scan: Colour Doppler, Duplex, and Triplex Doppler. What do they mean?

colour-dopple-duplex-ultrasound-scan

 

You are having an ultrasound scan or your doctor recommended a colour Doppler, duplex or triplex scan. It is normal to get confused as these are not terms that you use every day. On this post, we will try to demystify some of the terms related to ultrasound scanning.

Ultrasound was discovered in 1880 by Jacques and Pierre Curie and its first application was to detect submarines in 1917. In 1956, a team led by Obstetrician Ian Donald and engineer Tom Brown develop the first ultrasound machine to be used in clinical practice. As you can imagine the first applications of ultrasound were primarily in baby scanning. By the end of the 20th century, ultrasound scans were extensively used in maternity clinics.

Initially, the ultrasound images used to be black and white – and still are. These images are called 2D images as being two-dimensional.

 

Doppler Ultrasound

Colour Doppler or colour flow Doppler, that was discovered by Christian Doppler in 1841, is the technology to visualize blood flow during an ultrasound scan. Colour flow is being used all the time these days as it helps to differentiate between different structures, for example, a blood vessel and a cyst that can have the similar appearance on ultrasound. It helps to evaluate the vascularity of a tumour found for example in the breast scan, pelvic scan or liver scan. It helps to evaluate vascularity of whole organs such as in the thyroid scan in cases of thyroiditis.

Why have a Private Ultrasound Scan?

private-scan-london

Private ultrasound scan  (also known as medical ultrasound,  diagnostic sonography or ultrasonography) is a diagnostic imaging technique based on the application of ultrasound. It is used to create an image of internal body structures such as tendonsmuscles, joints, blood vessels, and internal organs. Its aim is often to find a source of a disease or to exclude pathology. The practice of examining pregnant women using ultrasound is called obstetric ultrasound, and was an early development and application of clinical ultrasonography.

There are multiple reasons why our clients choose to book a private ultrasound scan in our private ultrasound clinic in London.

Some of our clients have been referred for an ultrasound scan from their GP to help in diagnosing reasons for their health complaints. The hospital scan times, however, can be long.

The ultrasound waiting times in the NHS can be as long as six weeks and sometimes more, depending on your local hospital. So almost a month and a half that you have to wait to find out what’s wrong with you. This can have a detrimental effect on yourself as it will increase & anxiety.

When you eventually have received your ultrasound scan appointment, you have limited choice regarding the date and time of your scan. Yes, you can call in and reschedule your ultrasound appointment but, in most cases, you will go back to the end of the queue, unless there are any cancellations.
