Why You Should Head to Southeast Asia for Echocardiography

Home to Singapore, which has been hailed as the world’s second ranking country in terms of quality of health care system by the 2014 EIU or The Economist Intelligence Unit, Southeast Asia remains to be the number one choice when it comes to medical destination for patients all over the world who seek high quality but affordable cardiac care and surgical procedures.

One of the most common procedures that are taken advantage of is echocardiography, which is a highly sensitive diagnostic procedure that takes a sonogram of the heart by using a combination of 2D, 3D, and Doppler ultrasound technologies. Also known as an ECG, this procedure is widely used to evaluate the beating of the heart and to check for any abnormalities. One reason why some people opt to travel just to undergo a diagnostic procedure is that an ECG requires advanced equipment to ensure the accuracy of its results. The accuracy of the results is crucial and potentially life-saving as this is considered for future treatment.

Thankfully, Southeast Asian countries including Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia have highly advanced medical infrastructure that offers the latest cardiology equipment. The region’s JCI award-winning cardiac care programmes offer these. The region offers international patients a large assortment of specialty cardiology clinics, which employ world-class heart doctors, with the majority trained and educated in western countries such as the United States and Europe.

Despite the ability to offer the highest standard of medical care, cardiologists from Southeast Asian countries are charging up to 75% cheaper compared to western counterparts. Even with additional costs such as accommodation and airfare, you’ll still be able to save a fortune.
