Cardiac Catheterisation Lab
The cardiac catherisation suite or cath lab is situated on the 1 st floor x-ray dept at Southend Hospital and is a specialised fluoroscopy ( x-ray imaging) suite.
Here we perform diagnostic cardiac catheterisation to visulaise
the arteries of the heart. We also perform other cardiac procedures
such as the insertion of permanent pacemakers and pacemaker box
changes under fluoroscopic guidance.
