Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus Debuts Advanced Cardiac Imaging with 3D Echocardiography for Advanced Patient Care


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.

As a Barnabas Health Heart Center, patients at Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus’ have access to an expansive network of advanced cardiac services and integrated diagnostics that provide all the advantages of a single, multi-center program, with convenient access to consultation, testing, follow-up care, and rehabilitation.
