Commonly referred to as an echo, an echocardiogram is an ultrasound test for the heart. It uses sound waves to show the shape, texture, and movement of the heart valves, the size of your heart chambers and how well they work. This test also allows the doctor to analyze the direction and speed of blood flow through the heart.
Myocardial Perfusion Stress Test
A myocardial perfusion scan evaluates the blood supply to your heart muscle. By injecting very small amounts of a radioisotope through an IV in the arm or hand, we are able to determine whether areas of your heart muscle are receiving adequate blood supply.
Holter And Event Monitors
Holter and Event Monitors are devices that record your heartbeat while you carry out your normal daily routine. They are used to detect abnormal heart rhythms; evaluate abnormal symptoms such as chest pain, dizziness, or fainting; and to monitor how current treatments are working and how they may be affecting your heart.
