(WTNH)- Advanced imaging technologies have dramatically improved our ability to detect and treat cardiovascular disease at an early stage. Experts at YNHH use a range of sophisticated technologies to precisely diagnose problems affecting the heart – and to help determine appropriate treatments.
Dr. Lissa Sugeng is a cardiologist at Yale-New Haven Hospital who specializes in diagnosing heart problems through cardiac imaging. “Before a patient has a heart attack or has a murmur that we detect on an exam, we can see what’s going earlier through ultrasound or angiography and nuclear imaging,” said Dr. Sugeng.
Some of the technologies available at YNHH are preventative, others are evaluative to get a better understanding of someone’s heart, and some are state-of-the-art for surgery.
Yale New Haven Health System, the largest and most comprehensive healthcare system in Connecticut, is recognized for advanced clinical care, quality, service, cost effectiveness and commitment to improving the health status of the communities it serves. YNHHS includes three hospitals – Bridgeport, Greenwich and Yale-New Haven hospitals, several specialty networks and Northeast Medical Group, a non-profit medical foundation with several hundred community-based and hospital-employed physicians. www.ynhhs.org
