Services and Procedures

Clinical/Non Invasive
EECP Therapy
EECP (Enhanced External Counterpulsation) is an outpatient treatment that can relieve or eliminate angina. EECP stimulates the opening of new, natural pathways around narrowed or blocked arteries. The EECP system compresses your lower limbs to increase blood flow toward your heart.
This is an ultrasound test that sends sound waves into the chest to rebound from the heart's walls and valves. The recorded waves show the shape, texture and movement of the valves on an echocardiogram. They also show the size of the heart chambers and how well they're working.
Holter Monitoring
Usually conducted over a 24-hour period while the patient goes about his or her usual daily activities. It is a continuous recording of the electrocardiogram, which is useful for detecting arrhythmias that may not appear during a resting electrocardiogram.
Nuclear Cardiology
Imaging tests using small, safe amounts of radioactive medicine to evaluate heart function or blood flow.
Stress Echocardiogram
Performed in conjunction with a stress test to evaluate the heart muscle at rest and immediately after exercise.
ICG (Impedance Cardiography)
This test provides information about the heart’s ability to deliver blood to the rest of the body, the force the heart has to pump against with each heartbeat, and the amount of fluid in the chest.
Treadmill Testing
Also known as an exercise test or treadmill test, is a test in which EKG and blood pressure readings are monitored while walking on a treadmill.
Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TEE)
A special type of ultrasound imaging procedure. A transducer placed on the end of a tube is passed down a person's throat and into the esophagus. The esophagus is close to the heart, and images from TEE can give very clear pictures of the heart and its structures.
Tilt Table Testing
The head-up tilt table test involves lying quietly on a bed and being tilted at different angles (30 to 60 degrees) for a period of time while various machines monitor the blood pressure, electrical impulses in the heart, and oxygen level. The patient will be administered an IV (intravenous) line during the test. This test is a easy way to find the cause of fainting spells.
T-Wave Alternans: Advanced Arrhythmia Risk Analysis
This test (Microvolt T-wave Alternans) measures extremely subtle beat-to-beat fluctuations in a person's heartbeat called T-wave alternans. Extensive clinical research has shown that patients with symptoms of or, who are at risk of, life threatening arrhythmias who test positive for T-wave alternans are at significant risk for subsequent sudden cardiac events including sudden death, while those who test negative are at minimal risk.
Vascular Ultrasound
This noninvasive procedure uses ultrasound to produce images of a blood vessel and to provide information on the speed with which blood travels through the vessel.
Transcranial Visualization
For a transcranial ultrasound, the transducer is passed lightly over the skin at the base or side of your skull. Evaluation of a stroke can be done through this technique.
