Dr. Nicholas Pegge : Cardiologist


Ultrasound scanning of the heart provides non-invasive assessment of the structure and pumping function of the heart. Valve structure and blood flows through valves are seen. This test is sometimes undertaken on the same day as an outpatient appointment, or else shortly afterwards, and frequently performed by a Cardiac Physiologist either at Goring Hall Hospital or at the Cardiac department, Worthing Hospital.

Some patients need to have further echocardiography studies for specialist indications. This includes transoesophageal echocardiography and stress echocardiography, both of which Dr Pegge arranges with a consultant colleague who specialises in these imaging techniques.
