El-Lab Cardiology services carries out various tests to obtain results for early diagnosis and treatment of heart-related conditions or circulatory system disorders. Equipped with various cardiological equipment, we use several techniques to develop reliable results for patient care and offer a broad range of cardiac services from our non-invasive examinations and tests. These tests include Electrocardiography ECG, Echocardiography, Spirometry and Electroencephalography EEG.

Electrocardiography (ECG)

El-Lab offers Electrocardiogram (ECG) tests, a non-invasive procedure which records the electrical activities of the heart over a period of time using electrodes attached to the surface of the skin. The heart produces tiny electrical impulses which spread through the heart muscle to make the heart contract. These impulses can be detected by the ECG machine and recorded on a moving strip of paper or a line on a screen. ECGs help to find the cause of symptoms such as palpitations or chest pain. Sometimes it is done as part of routine tests such as before surgery. Our ECG equipment also detects disorders like myocardial infraction (heart attack), cardiac dysrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythms) and so on.


Echocardiography tests such as the Standard 2-D, 3-D and Doppler ultrasound are offered by El-Lab. It is an advanced ultrasound non-invasive procedure which creates images of the heart as the device picks up echoes of sound waves as they bounce off the various parts of the heart. Once converted, these echoes become moving or static pictures of the heart’s chambers, valves, walls and the blood vessels (aorta, arteries, veins), etc and can be seen on a video screen. Echocardiography can detect the size and shape of the heart, pumping capacity, location and extent of any tissue damage as well as disorders such as Cardiomyopathies, Stenosis, abnormal blood flow and so many other conditions.


At El-Lab, we offer Spirometry services to determine how well your lungs are functioning. This is achieved by measuring how much air you inhale and exhale and how rapidly you do so. The tests can diagnose chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, and several other conditions which affect your breathing. Our Spirometry tests can also be used to confirm how well treatment for a lung condition is working. By breathing into a mouthpiece, the machine records your results and you can know more about the functioning of your lungs, chest wall and respiratory muscles. The results are often measured directly or calculated and may be repeated if necessary.

Electroencephalography (EEG)

The Electroencephalography (EEG) test involves the recording of the brain’s natural electrical activities over a period of time. It is detected by many special sensors called electrodes placed over the scalp of the head, all connected by wires to a computer. An EEG tracks and records brain wave patterns by measuring voltage fluctuations and provides evidence of how the brain functions on a printed record. Brain disorders such as epilepsy, sleep disorders, coma, encephalopathies and several others can be diagnosed using this test. Routine clinical EEG recording usually lasts about 25–30 minutes.
