Diagnostics and Imaging

Cardiac Diagnostics

We offer a full range of diagnostic services to detect heart disease. For patients with chest pain, we offer a variety of tests which provide a non-invasive way of evaluating the status of a patient's heart prior to going to the cardiac catheterization or electrophysiology labs. Information from the following tests is reviewed by physicians to determine the best plan of care to offer our patients:

  • 3-D Imaging 
  • Cardiac ultrasound
  • Cardiac MRI
  • Echocardiogram
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)
  • Imaging with X-ray
    • Angiogram
    • Attenuation
    • Correction
  • Nuclear medicine
  • Pulmonary function testing
  • Stress testing (treadmill testing)
  • Stress thallium
  • Transesophageal Echocardiogram (Tee)

Cardiac Imaging

Radiology uses advanced imaging to diagnose and sometimes also treat diseases within the body. Our interventional radiologists can use this image guidance to provide a minimally invasive alternative for some procedures.
