Dr Chris McAloon Consultant Cardiologist

Mon, Jan 24th 2022 at 5:45 pm - 8:15 pm

Chris a GRH cardiac imaging specialist will talk about the state of the art echo scanners. An echo is a routine test for most heart patients. The new scanners with cutting edge technology will make an enormous difference in assessing heart function


Club members please log in for more information.

Dr Chris McAloon said, “as well as treating heart patients, the high quality imaging on the new scanners can benefit people with other conditions, for example monitoring the impact of cancer treatment on the heart or checking heart function before surgery. Echocardiograms have also been used during COVID-19 to help manage patients with complex needs, particularly those in intensive care, and will continue to be important for anyone who might have cardiac complications as a result of COVID.”

Joining Chris at the meeting will be Dr William Jenkins a Consultant Cardiologist trained in all aspects of cardiovascular disease but with specialist interests in heart failure, inherited cardiac conditions and cardiac imaging.
