To provide specialised heart examinations, such as CT coronary angiography, Double Check has partnered with the Klinik Hirslanden, Privatklinik Bethanien and the University Hospital Zurich, and works closely with their renowned doctors and professors. Tests may include calcium score, which is an important way to find out if there are early signs of blockages in the heart and blood vessels, and to rule out certain types of heart disease.
Areas of heart health specialisation:
- Routine check-up to assess heart performance and evaluate heart risk factors
- Diagnosis and treatment of high blood cholesterol and high blood pressure
- Heart imaging using gold-standard technology including myocardial scintigraphy (thallium ‘stress test’), positron emission tomography (PET), magnet resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT)
- Diagnosis and treatment of heart-related chest pain, heart rhythm disorders, congenital heart defects, heart valve disease and heart failure.
