Heart

Le cœur est l’un des organes les plus essentiels du corps humain. Un muscle sensible à nos modes de vie, à nos habitudes de consommation, et qui bat en moyenne 100 000 fois par jour.

La scintigraphie cardiaque est un examen radiologique permettant d'étudier les artères coronaires et la vitalité du cœur. Elle aide à diagnostiquer un infarctus ou une diminution de l'apport sanguin dans une partie du cœur.

CTG (cardiotocogram)

In consultation, the midwife sometimes uses a device called a "cardiotocogram".

This device records the heart sounds of your baby and measures the contractions over a given period of time.

This examination is completely painless and safe for you and your baby.
