Cardiology Non-invasive Laboratory is a team composed of cardiologists, cardiovascular technologists, and nurses who work together to provide diagnostic information for patients of all ages known to or suspected to have cardiac diseases which include coronary artery disease, rheumatic valvular heart disease, congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathies, cardiac arrhythmias, hypertensive heart disease, aortic heart disease, pericardial disease and systemic disease with cardiac manifestation.

Our mission is to provide patients with the highest quality of tertiary medical care for all types of cardiovascular diseases in an integrated educational and research setting through clinical practice, teaching and research.

We offer cardiac non-invasive procedures such as an electrocardiogram (12-lead, rhythm strip, and signal averaging), echocardiography (2-D, 3-D, Fetal and Stress), holter and blood pressure monitoring, stress testing with different modalities and analysis of cardiac devices (pacemaker, ICD, CRT and loop recorder. Also, we provide a 24/7 services to in-house and emergency patients.

Annually, we perform over 20,000 non-invasive diagnostic procedures for both in and outpatients.

Our department is also providing internship Echo rotation for students from other universities across the kingdom.
