LAKEWOOD, N.J. – Barnabas Health Heart Center at Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus, an RWJBarnabas Health facility,
will now be able to give patients a better picture of their heart with
the recent addition of a 3D echocardiogram.
By utilizing the state-of-the art Phillips EPIQ7 ultrasound system and
Live 3D Echo technology, cardiologists will be able to view the heart
instantaneously, visualizing it from different perspectives and looking
at the correlation between valves, chambers, and vessels to identify abnormalities
- resulting in more complete and direct views when compared with 2D echocardiography.
“This ultrasound system brings a new standard of care to our facility.
Physicians and staff members will now be able to easily share high-quality
images quickly between facilities, resulting a better diagnosis and prognosis
for patients, particularly in complex cases,” said Frank J. Vozos,
MD, executive vice president, RWJBarnabas Health and chief executive,
Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus.
Capable of providing superior quality of cardiac ultrasound images, the
unit helps provide greater diagnostic accuracy, easy and universal accessibility
and better communication between primary and specialist physicians.
“Patients requiring multiple echocardiograms will also benefit, as
the new technology allows for easier comparisons of tests, showing differences
that signal improvements or declines faster,” says Dr. Vozos.

Southern Campus’ have access to an expansive network of advanced
cardiac services and integrated diagnostics that provide all the advantages
