The underlying cause, impact and health implications of a diagnosis of AF may vary from person to person. Clinical consultation with our expert Cardiologists offers an individual treatment plan for AF.
Several cardiac tests may be utilised to diagnose AF, assess its underlying causes and monitor response to treatment.
- Exercise Stress Echocardiogram
- Transoesophageal Echocardiogram
- Holter Monitor
- Ambulatory BP Monitor
- Sleep Study - A sleep study is an overnight recording while a person is asleep for the diagnosis and evaluation of sleep disorders. Sleep studies can be performed either at home or in a hospital. For more information, see Genesis SleepCare
- Cardiac CT Scan - This is an x-ray scan to view detailed images of the heart, the coronary arteries, and particularly the size and anatomy of the left atrium. It is a relatively non-invasive test, which requires injection of dye into a vein.
