Testing & Procedure
An electrocardiogram, also known as an EKG or ECG, monitors your heart’s electrical activities – rate and rhythm. It helps your health professional identify any issues with your heart and respond accordingly.
Nuclear Cardiac Testing
This testing allows your doctor to get better insights into your heart’s condition. Any damage to your heart or inadequate blood flow is detected through this test. A radioactive fluid travels through your heart, giving information about how the blood travels in and out of your heart.
Exercise Stress Testing
This test shows your heart’s capability to work under certain stressful conditions. Stress is generated through an exercise in a controlled environment.
Stress Echocardiography is also called a stress echo or echocardiography stress test. During the test, your examiner will ask you to run on a treadmill to monitor your heart’s health. Specifically, your rhythm and pressure are monitored under stress.
Echocardiography and Doppler Studies
This painless test tells your doctor how well your heart is pumping blood. Detecting issues early can promise more effective treatment results.
Cardiac Catheterization & Angiography
Cardiac catheterization involves inserting a catheter into the arteries of your arm, groin, or neck and passing through the veins to your heart. During the procedure, you are awake, and the physician may ask you to respond to certain instructions.
Coronary Angioplasty & Stent Implant
This procedure is used to open blocked or narrowed coronary arteries that supply blood to your heart.
A Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) closure is a procedure that closes the foramen ovale (a hole in the heart). Usually, the foramen ovale seals on its own during the first few months of a baby’s birth.
Pericardiocentesis is a medical procedure that uses a needle and catheter to draw out excess fluid from the pericardium – a layer that surrounds the heart.
LV Support Device (Impella and Balloon Pump) Placement
If your heart cannot pump adequate blood, these two medical devices can help your heart increase its blood pumping rate.
A cardiac event monitor records the way your heart works. It keeps track of your heart’s electrical activity and helps determine the presence of any heart conditions.
A Holter monitor is a small battery-operated device that constantly records your heart’s activity for 24-48 hours. It allows your health professional to know if you are suffering from any heart condition.
Mobile Cardiac Telemetry
This is a portable way to monitor your cardiac activities while you go through your daily routine.
Long term Rhythm Recorder Implants
An implantable loop recorder is a small device implanted beneath your chest’s skin and close to your breastbone. It monitors your heart’s electrical activity for as long as three years, which can be remotely monitored for diagnosing heart problems.
A transesophageal echocardiogram is a test that enables the physician to get a better understanding of your heart’s condition. The test shows how well your heart’s valves and chambers are working and can help identify any clot formation.
A cardioversion is a common medical procedure that is carried out to restore your heart’s normal rhythm. If you have a too slow or too fast heartbeat, cardioversion can bring it back to a regular rate.
Coronary Calcium Scan
This medical procedure checks if you are at risk of developing heart disease. The test detects any accumulation of calcium on the coronary arteries.
ICD And Pacemaker Check
We offer ICD and pacemaker testing in our clinic regularly. If you recently have had an ICD or pacemaker implantation, it is important to schedule an appointment and visit your doctor.
A pacemaker controls abnormal heartbeat and helps you live a normal and active life. Heartbeats that are slower or faster than usual can make a person feel tired and restless all day long. Pacemaker implantation can help you get on your feet like everyone else.
This is a rehabilitation program that improves your heart and overall health through awareness and exercise. Patients affected by a heart attack or other cardiac diseases are encouraged to join this outpatient program.
Comprehensive Venous Ultrasound
A lower extremity venous ultrasound can detect deep vein thrombosis. It is a medical condition in which blood clots are formed in the veins of the leg.
Endovenous Ablation and Occlusion for Varicose Veins
Endovenous Ablation is a procedure that is used to eliminate varicose veins. There are two types of ablation techniques. The most frequently used one is laser ablation, and the other one is radiofrequency ablation.
This procedure treats varicose veins and “spider veins.” During the procedure, a specialist injects medication directly into your vessels, making them narrower.
Ankle Brachial Index (ABI)
Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) is a test that doctors use to diagnose peripheral artery disease. This test checks the difference between blood pressure in the upper arm and ankle. Low blood pressure in the ankles indicates the presence of a disease.
Peripheral Vascular Ultrasound & Doppler
This ultrasound examination is a painless procedure that detects arterial blood flow. The test can help your doctor find any blockages in your blood flow. The exam takes around 45 minutes to an hour.
Abdominal Aortic Ultrasound & Doppler
This technique helps evaluate the aorta, which is the main blood vessel that takes blood from the heart to the rest of the body.
Renal Vascular Ultrasound & Doppler
This ultrasound evaluates the flow of blood coming in and out of your kidneys. Uncontrolled blood pressure can affect the blood vessels leading from the aorta to the kidneys. A Renal Vascular Doppler Ultrasound detects the narrowing of these blood vessels.
Carotid Angiography & Angioplasty
This procedure helps find any issues with carotid arteries, which supply blood to your brain. The narrowing of these arteries can result in weakness, speech issues, and compromised eyesight.
Peripheral Vascular Intervention
This procedure treats peripheral artery disease, which causes plaque buildup in the arteries that carry blood to the head, arms, and legs.
Endovascular Repair of Aortic Aneurysm
This is a small invasive surgery that is used to treat an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA).
Renal Angiography & Angioplasty
This medical procedure uses x-rays to study the vessels to and from the kidneys. If there are any issues with your blood supply, it can be detected through this exam.
Catheter Directed Thrombectomy for Blood Clots
This medical procedure helps remove blood clots from the arteries. It is a small invasive treatment that uses a device to direct medicine to abnormal blood clots. The medication breaks and dissolves the clots.
