Barnabas Health Heart Center at Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus,
a 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 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
by providing greater diagnostic accuracy and accessibility. Physicians
and staff members will now be able to quickly share high-quality images
between facilities, making communication a seamless process,” said
Frank J. Vozos, MD, FACS, executive vice president, RWJBarnabas Health
and chief executive officer, Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus.
“For patients requiring multiple echocardiograms, this technology
is especially beneficial as it allows for easier comparisons of tests,
showing differences that signal improvements or declines faster.”
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.
