The in-patient unit comprises 32 active beds (Middlecare or CCU). The CCU is the section of the in-patient unit specifically used for patients who:
- suffer from acute cardiac problems: acute coronary syndrome, acute heart failure,
- have undergone coronary angioplasty, heart surgery, aortic valvoplasty, or had a pacemaker or defibrillator fitted.
The medical imaging unit team is made up of 4 cardiologists, 1 radiologist, 1 cardiac rhythm specialist and 1 nuclear medicine specialist. Through synergistic collaboration, they research and diagnose all coronary problems.
The following tests are performed at the unit:
- transthoracic echocardiography,
- transœsophageal echocardiography,
- drug-induced stress echocardiography,
- stress echocardiography,
- paediatric ultrasound,
- two-dimensional strain imaging by echocardiography,
- contrast echocardiography,
- three-dimensional intracardiac echocardiography,
- evaluation of ventricular dyssynchrony,
- coronary CT scan,
- stress and drug-induced stress myocardial scintigraphy.
