The number one killer in the United States, cardiovascular disease affects the heart and blood vessels. Our experts can identify, treat and help you manage cardiac conditions.
An echocardiogram is a test that uses sound waves to create a moving picture of the heart.
This type of monitor will record your heart rhythm during your everyday activities. For this test, you will wear a portable EKG machine. You will have the monitor for 24 or 48 hours.
Nuclear cardiology tests can determine if areas of the heart muscle are receiving good or poor blood supply.
A noninvasive peripheral vascular exam measures blood pressure and blood flow using sound waves created by a device called a doppler. You will have a test done while you rest and while you exercise on a treadmill. This test helps tell if there are blockages in the leg arteries. This test takes about 30 minutes when looking at leg veins, and 45 minutes or longer when looking at the leg arteries.
Stress echocardiography is a test that uses ultrasound imaging to determine how the heart muscles respond to stress. It is mainly used to diagnose and evaluate coronary artery disease.
