Diagnostic Testing Center

Testing Available in our diagnostic testing center. These non-invasive tests provide our cardiologists with information about the function of your cardiovascular system, so that we may best determine how to protect your heart health.
 
Pacemaker and Defibrillator Surveillance
The general status of your pacemaker or defibrillator can be checked sometimes by phone or wireless at home - to make sure it is functioning correctly.
 
Holter Monitoring/Event Monitoring/Cardiac Event Monitor and ambulatory telemetry
The Holter monitor is a portable device that continuously records the heart's rhythm over a 24 hour period. This test monitors all types of arrhythmias and silent ischemia. You will be asked to keep a diary that the physician uses to correlate your activities with symptoms and cardiac rhythms. The Event Monitor is a auto-triggered monitor to catch those occasional symptoms and arrhythmias.
 
Carotid Ultrasound
A test is used to detect narrowing of the arteries in the neck (the carotid arteries) that supply blood to the brain. During this test, these arteries are visualized using high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) for evidence of plaque (blockages).

Echocardiography
An echocardiogram (also called an echo) is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer. Moving a hand-held device across your chest transmits an image that is taped for analysis by your cardiologist. Echocardiograms can reveal the strength of the heart, heart valve problems, cause of enlarged hearts, as well as congenital heart defects, pericardial disease and effects of coronary disease.
 
Stress Exercise Echocardiography
A combination of treadmill testing and echocardiography, this test offers more diagnostic details about how exercise affects your heart.  A procedure used to determine how well your heart and blood vessels are working. You will be asked to exercise on a treadmill or stationary bike while doctors monitor your blood pressure and heart rhythm.
 
Stress Testing: Treadmill
The primary purpose of this test is to evaluate the heart for blockages of the coronary arteries. Treadmill testing evaluates the heart's response to physical exercise. You will walk on a treadmill, which gradually increases in speed and elevation. During the entire test, your EKG, heart rate rhythm, blood pressure and symptoms are monitored by a physician, nurse or cardiovascular technician.

Nuclear Stress Testing and Heart Disease
Nuclear cardiology is widely used to establish the diagnosis of heart disease, measure the disease extent, and plan treatment. Nuclear cardiology examinations are used to assess blood flow to the heart, show the size and location of any prior heart attacks and evaluate the pumping function of the heart. These tests are safe and noninvasive.
Imaging uses very small doses of a radioactive imaging agent that is injected into the blood stream. During the examination, you will be asked to rest on a scanning table. A camera will focus on the heart for approximately 20 minutes and measure the amount of imaging material that is taken up by the heart muscle. This is done before and after the treadmill stress test or pharmacologic infusion of Adenosine, for comparison.
 
Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI)
This test is done by measuring blood pressure at the ankle and in the arm while a person is at rest. Some people also do an exercise test. In this case, the blood pressure measurements are repeated at both sites after a few minutes of walking on a treadmill. The ankle-brachial index (ABI) result is used to predict the severity of peripheral arterial disease (PAD).

Home Sleep Study
A home sleep test (HST) is a sleep study tool that is used for the diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea. Most HST devices are portable – about the size of a telephone handset. Home sleep testing is also called 'Unattended Sleep Study'.
 
Lower extremity Arterial
An arterial doppler is an ultrasound exam of the arteries located in your arms or legs. High frequency sound waves are used to obtain images of structures inside the body. Ultrasound imaging can help the radiologist see and evaluate arterial blockages, such as plaque in arteries.
 
Venous Doppler Ultrasound
A Venous Doppler is an ultrasound exam of the veins located in your arms and legs. High frequency sound ways are used to obtain images of structures inside the body. Ultrasound imaging can help the radiologist see and evaluate blockages in blood flow, such as clots in veins.

Abdominal arotic screening
An Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA), a specific kind of aneurysm, is a condition in which the lining of the blood vessel called the aorta is enlarged within the abdomen. Abdominal aortic aneurysms pose a threat because they are usually silent until a medical emergency occurs.
