About Echo Heart Centre

The Echo Heart Centre was set up in 2014 by Dr. Avin Calcutteea who is a highly specialised Cardiac Clinical Scientist and Medical Physicist. The centre offers in-depth diagnostic transthoracic Echocardiography compliant to international norms and comparable to the level of service offered at reputable NHS hospitals in London. In addition to Echocardiography services, the centre also offers Carotid Duplex Ultrasound, a technique used not only to assess the risk of stroke (blocked brain arteries) but can also be used to identify

patients with coronary artery disease (blocked heart arteries). Our mission is to beat heart disease through early identification of cardiac pathologies in a patient with a view to mitigate the risk of unwanted heart complications or heart attack in the future. We are committed to excellence in diagnostic clinical Echocardiography and its application to patient care through education, research, innovation and excellent service to the public.

With our echocardiogram and carotid ultrasound, we can detect about 95% of all types of cardiac diseases as well as determining their underlying causes, planning treatment strategies and preventing heart attack or fatal stroke.

New insights in the assessment of right ventricular function: Echocardiography


Published: October 31, 2014
Author: Avin Calcutteea, Michael Y. Henein, Per Lindqvist

The right ventricle is a three dimensional (3D) complex structure of a crescent shaped cavity wrapped around the left ventricle. It consists of three compartments namely, the inflow tract (inlet), the outflow tract (outlet) and apex. There is a contraction time delay between the compartments in order to allow blood to flow through the wide angle between the inlet and outlet. The clinical literature has shown the right ventricle to be a sensitive predictor of exercise tolerance and also a major determinant of clinical symptoms in patients with heart failure. This book gives a clear understanding of the physiology of the right ventricle in three groups of patients 1) Patients with previous heart attack; 2) patients with severe aortic valve narrowing (aortic stenosis) before and six months after valve replacement and 3) patients with raised pulmonary circulation pressure (pulmonary hypertension). We used advanced echocardiography technologies such as 3D, Speckle tracking (analysis of speckle motion of the heart muscle) as well as already used measures to demonstrate right ventricular function in terms of structure and timing changes in each disease condition.
