Stress Test Precisely measures your bodys reaction
to physical activity in a safe and controlled environment.
(ECG or EKG) Monitors electrical activity of the heart,
picking up even the slightest, but potentially dangerous abnormalities.
A simple outpatient test that positively identifies problems
of the heart valves and muscle function.
Monitoring A 24-hour, carry-along heart monitoring system,
capable of pinpointing previously difficult-to-detect heart rhythm
Scans the heart using a special camera to visualize the
blood flow patterns through the heart muscle for an accurate analysis.
Cardiac Catheterization utilizes a flexible, narrow tube
(catheter) through a vein or an artery into the heart to withdraw
samples of blood and also to measure pressures in the heart chambers
Angiography An X-ray of the blood vessels of the heart,
which gives us a clear picture of any potential problems.
Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) More commonly
known as "balloon angioplasty," its a method of
treating the narrowing of a coronary artery by inserting a specialized
catheter with a balloon attachment. By inflating the balloon, we
are able to open the narrow portion of the artery to restore proper
blood flow to the heart.
Stenting An implantation technique used to reinforce
the wall of a vein or artery and assure its openness.
Ultrasound Imaging Used to evaluate any potential heart
disease or plaque build-up.
