Intracardiac Echocardiography


Intracardiac Echocardiography / ICE Imaging in Hawaii

Traditionally our Hawaii team will use an x-ray during a cardiac catherazation or cardiac procedure. However, new imaging techniques such as Intracardiac Echocardiography also known as Intercardiac Echo or ICE can now be used.

Intracardiac Echocardiography provides 2-dimensional images. With Intracardiac Echocardiograpy an ultrasound probe is advanced through the vein in your leg to the chambers of the heart. This up close view of the heart better guide treatment. The Intracardiac Echocardiography probe allows for higher quality images of the heart structures from inside your heart during cardiac procedures.
