Electrophysiology studies are conducted to determine appropriate therapy for irregular heart rhythms, including some that may be life threatening (ablation, device implant or medical treatment). Both diagnostic and therapeutic services are conducted in the hospital.
The advanced diagnostic X-ray equipment at Nasseff Heart Center is specifically designed for the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias). Two cameras allow a cardiologist to create 2- and 3-dimensional views of your heart. In addition to greater image quality, this equipment delivers half the radiation dose than the previous biplane table, improving patient, and practitioner, safety while improving accuracy.
Electrophysiologists are cardiologists who have additional education and training in the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal heart rhythms.
In partnership with the St. Paul Heart Clinic, the Nasseff Heart Center's electrophysiology program is one of the largest in the region.
