Area of Interest / Research

Hearts 1st provides a broad service of diagnostic testing assessing cardiac conditions including coronary artery disease, structural heart disease and rhythm disorders.

We have a particular interest in the following areas:

  • Contrast (Definity) imaging with echo and stress echo imaging
  • Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) detection via agitated saline imaging
  • Athlete screening with sporting bodies such as Queensland Academy of Sport, Queensland Reds, Broncos.
  • Varied research work in conjunction with Gallipoli Medical Research
