Imaging

Nuclear Studies

Nuclear stress tests are similar to the treadmill test but also provide images of the heart taken under a special camera. Showing the relative amounts of an injected radioisotope within the heart muscle, the nuclear stress tests more accurately identify regional areas of reduced blood flow. What to Expect We will be using a nuclear

EP Remote Monitoring

Remote monitoring is the latest technology-driven advance in medicine providing patients safe, quality healthcare while reducing costs and providing convenience to our patients. Electrophysiological advances allow patients with implantable defibrillators (ICDs), pacemakers, and implantable cardiac monitors to be monitored with fewer office visits. What to Expect These monitor systems are either wireless or wanded, and

Electrophysiology Studies

An EP study helps your physician locate areas within the heart that may be causing an abnormal rhythm. What to Expect A catheter is inserted through your groin and guided through your artery up into your heart. The physician can send impulses to stimulate the heart, allowing the physician to identify what type of heart

Electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG)

An electrocardiogram records the heart’s electrical activity. This test can show abnormalities in the heart rhythm and rate. It can also detect if a past heart attack has occurred or is occurring. Twelve-lead EKG of a 26-year-old male What to Expect Small sticky patches are applied to the skin and wires are hooked to the

Echocardiography

An echocardiogram uses ultrasound waves to create an image of the heart and track the pattern of the blood flow through the heart. It can provide a wealth of helpful information, including the size and shape of the heart (internal chamber size quantification), pumping capacity, and the location and extent of any tissue damage. An

Defibrillators (ICDs)

An Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD) is like a pacemaker in that it is an implanted, battery-operated device. This device constantly monitors the heart rate and rhythm and will deliver an electrical shock to re-establish a normal heart rhythm if it senses a life-threatening rhythm disturbance. Patients who may need an ICD: People who have an

Cardiac Stress Test (Treadmill Test)

The test evaluates the heart’s response to exercise. This test can diagnose coronary artery disease, monitor heart rhythms and evaluate exercise capacity. What to Expect This stress test involves walking on a treadmill, gradually increasing the speed and incline at which you walk. Preparation There is no preparation for this test other than wearing comfortable
