Thank you for helping us fund an additional echocardiogram machine
Your generous support has helped raise £142,000 to provide an additional echocardiogram machine for the Cardiac Investigation Unit.
An echocardiogram machine, also known as an echo, uses ultrasound to show a detailed image of a patient’s heart which can help diagnose any abnormalities or conditions affecting the heart. For example, it can help detect congenital heart disease, heart failure, damage from a heart attack, and problems affecting the valves of the heart.
Having the additional machine is helping to reduce waiting times for patients awaiting diagnosis as well as giving patients access to the latest technology.
Cardiologist and Stars Appeal Hospital Ambassador, Dr Susie Lewis, who is pictured with one of the Hospital’s other echocardiogram machines, says having the additional echocardiogram machine is enabling the Cardiac Investigation Unit “to do more scans and help more patients”.
