    AID FOR TREATMENT AND PREVENTION OF
    HEART DISEASE

     


    Cardiology is perhaps the biggest beneficiary of all the medical specialties regarding the positive changes brought about by Internet Medicine..  No specialty has been so blessed with the multitude of devices and improvements in technology that improves the abilities of diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment.  Specifically, we speak of the following ground breaking devices, which are vastly changing the field of cardiology.

    The Vscan

    The VScan is a portable, wirelss hand-held gadget, about the size of a big cell phone, which can be put in the pocket of the cardiologist.  It can be used as a portable ultrasound machine, to look directly into the heart, and visualize in real time the movements of the heart chambers and heart valves.  It allows the cardiologist to look into the heart at the bedside, and to directly visualize any valvular or wall motion defects of the heart.
    If the cardiologist suspects a problem, the patient can be sent for a more specificl, higher quality ultrasound in the radiology department.  But the VScan affords the cardiologist to avoid any unnecessary ultrasounds, and is a great, quick screening test for suspected pathology.

    Here is a video which shows how the Vscan works:
