Cardiology

Department Activity

We have the best cardiology department and cardiologist in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This department provides medical care to patients who have problems with their heart or circulation. It treats people on an inpatient and outpatient basis.
Outpatient: short visit to hospital that lasts no more than a day.
Inpatient: hospital visit that requires at least one night's stay on a ward.

Typical procedures performed in the cardiology department include the following:

  • Electrocardiogram (ECG) and exercise tests to measure heart function.
  • Echocardiograms (ultrasound scan of the heart).
  • Scans of the carotid artery in your neck to determine stroke risk.
  • 24-hour blood pressure tests.
  • Insertion of pacemakers.
  • Cardiac catheterisation (coronary angiography) to see if there are any blocks in your arteries.
  • MRI scans.
  • Myocardial perfusion scans.
  • Radionuclide tests.
