An ECG is the most commonly performed cardiac investigation.

An ECG is essential in the diagnosis of heart rhythm abnormalities and unstable cardiac conditions like acute myocardial infarction (heart attack).


A stress ECG is most useful in the assessment of chest pain syndromes.

A stress ECG uses similar technology to a resting ECG, however the heart’s electrical activity is measured during gradually increasing exercise intensity.


Echocardiography is essential in the assessment of chest pain syndromes.

An echocardiogram is a detailed ultrasound assessment of the heart using multiple imaging positions and modalities.
