Get an accurate, convenient diagnosis with Mobile Cardiac Telemetry in-home testing from Stratus.
Comfortable & Convenient MCT Testing
Correct diagnosis is the first step in managing and treating Atrial Fibrillation (AFib), syncope (fainting due to a problem with the heart), and other cardiac arrhythmias. Without proper treatment, AFib can lead to congestive heart failure, heart disease, and a five-times increased risk of stroke.4 Mobile Cardiac Telemetry (MCT) is a method of recording the heart’s activity via a comfortable and convenient portable device. The data it collects is vital in helping physicians properly diagnose and treat conditions such as AFib and cardiac syncope.
