The latest technology
When it comes to diagnosing heart and vascular disease, speed matters.
Our advanced diagnostic tools can help us identify and determine the best
route of treatment for you quickly and efficiently.
Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI) and Segmental Pressure Testing
The blood pressure in your ankle is compared to the blood pressure in your arm.
Harmless sound waves are used to create images of blood flow in your legs.
Cardiac Catheterization and Coronary Angiography
An angiogram is a special type of X-ray that lets your doctor view your
coronary arteries to see if the blood vessels to your heart are narrowed
or blocked. It requires your doctor to place a long, thin tube called
a catheter inside an artery in your groin or arm and guide it into your heart.
Cardiac Stress Tests
Walking on a treadmill or riding a stationary bike to evaluate the blood
flow to your heart, your exercise tolerance or the presence of a heart
Computer Tomography (CT) Scan
A test that combines X-rays and computer scans to create a detailed picture
that can show problems with soft tissues, such as the lining of your sinuses,
organs, such as your kidneys or lungs, blood vessels and bones.
An imaging test that uses sound waves (ultrasound) to create pictures of
Electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG)
This test records electrical signals from the heart onto a paper strip,
measuring the heart’s rhythm, pumping quality and stress levels.
Testing to find weak or damaged electrical pathways that make your heart
beat too fast or slow. This helps your provider find the cause of a heart
rate or rhythm problem and decide how to treat it.
Holter Monitors and Event Monitoring
A portable device used to record your heart’s electrical activity
and help diagnose some kinds of abnormal heart rhythm and other health
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
A test that lets your doctor see detailed pictures of the inside of your
body by combining the use of strong magnets and radio waves to form an
Nuclear Cardiology Testing
Testing that injects a very small amount of radioactive tracer into a vein
while a sensitive camera takes still pictures and movies of the heart
with rest, exercise or medication-induced stress testing.
Peripheral Angiography and Venography
An outpatient procedure that makes a “map” of the vessels (arteries)
in your lower body, legs and arms, using X-ray and dye to show where blood
flow may be blocked.
Tilt Table Testing
A simple test that helps pinpoint the cause of fainting by checking how
changes in body position affect your blood pressure.
Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TEE)
A TEE is somewhat more involved than a surface echocardiogram as it requires
a probe to be passed into your esophagus. Echo testing can help your doctor
monitor changes in your heart over time.
