Diagnosis of heart disease in 5 seconds 

Can you believe that your heart ailments can be diagnosed in just five seconds? Yes, this is possible now. Thanks to the new state-of-the-art light speed volume CT system which has been installed at the Delta Heart Center here. 

The light speed 64-slice volume CT, which costs Rs. 6 crore, is the first of its kind in the region. As a matter of fact, there are only five or six such machines available in the country, including three in Delhi. 

The light speed 64-slice multi-detector CT is a break through in investigative radiology for detecting coronary artery disease. Besides, this machine can capture the image of any organ of the body and help in diagnosis of cancer and neurological problems. 

According to Dr. J. S. Gill, managing director Delta Heart Centre, coronary artery disease is the single largest cause of morbidity. The need of time is a non-invasive and outpatient investigation that accurately diagnosis coronary artery. The CT coronary angiography plays this role to perfection, claims Dr. Gill. 

He says that all images required for a CT coronary angiogram are obtai8ned in five seconds. Moreover, the patient is free to continue his daily routine. The arteries are evaluated for narrowing, blockage, and presence of different varieties of plaque. The status of the various chambers of heart, cardiac muscle and the main vesels carrying blood to and from the heart can also be easily seen. It is helpful in evaluating postoperative grafts and stents.

Hailing the installation of the machine, Dr. Livtar Singh Chawla, founder vice-chancellor of Baba Farid University of Health Sciences, and a leading physician of the north, say that this system will be a boon for Punjab as the Punjabis have the highest incidence of coronary artery disease. Moreover, this system will have a non-invasive technique and is safer.

Dr. Chawla maintains that the machine will give a clear picture of the lungs, heart, brain or bone.

Dr. Gurpreet Singh Wander, Chief Cardiologist, Hero-DMC Heart Institute, is also of the view that the new machine will benefit the patients.
