Heart disease and stroke is the world's largest killer, claiming 17.5 million lives a year. Eighty per cent of the victims are from low-and middle-income countries. Heart disease is largely preventable and simple, affordable steps can be taken to reduce the major risk factors. Controlling these risk factors helps the heart to age more slowly and dramatically reduces the risk of heart disease.

Early diagnosis and expert treatment are essential to being able to live a productive life. At Lifeline Heart Care, we can detect heart disease ... before it complicates life ..... with several tests that do not cause discomfort and are not complicated.

Our Non-Invasive Cardiac Laboratory is responsible for providing complete cardiac diagnosis through inter-related non-invasive methods and procedures.

The Laboratory utilizes a wide array of tests to help detect heart disease. These include:

 Computerized ECG
 TMT n 2D Echo
 Colour Doppler
 Stress Echo
 CT Angiography
 Thallium Scan

People requiring these investigative modalities include those suffering from:

 Diabetes Mellitus
 Hypertension
