Non-Invasive Cardiac Diagnostics (NICD) refers to a set of diagnostic tests and procedures that can assess the functioning of the heart and circulatory system without the need for invasive procedures. These tests include procedures such as electrocardiogram (ECG), echocardiogram, stress test, Holter monitoring, and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
NICD procedures are typically used to diagnose heart conditions, such as arrhythmia, heart failure, and coronary artery disease, among others. These tests are considered non-invasive because they do not require any incisions or insertion of instruments or catheters into the body.
NICD tests are generally safe and do not pose any significant risks or complications. However, as with any medical procedure, there may be some minor risks involved, such as skin irritation from the electrodes used during an ECG or discomfort during a stress test. Our clinic can provide you with more information about the specific risks and benefits of each test.
