Six echocardiographic machines are utilized in the laboratory, whereas 2 additional portable units are positioned in the cardiology ward and in the Intensive Care Unit. Two additional standard and portable units are located in the Operating Rooms, and a standard unit in the Catheterization Laboratories of the hospital.
Among the ultrasound units, our Laboratory takes advantage of two of the most advanced ultrasound systems.
