Cardiology Services & Procedures

Non-Invasive Diagnostic Testing

    * 64-slice CT angiography
    * Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
    * Positron Emission Tomography (PET Imaging)
    * Electrocardiogram (EKG)
    * Holter and event monitoring for rhythm disturbances
    * Transthoracic echocardiogram (2D and 3D imaging, TTE)
    * Transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE)
    * Exercise stress echocardiogram
    * Dobutamine stress echocardiogram
    * Myocardial perfusion imaging at rest and stress

Invasive Diagnostic Testing

    * Cardiac catheterization (to measure blood pressures within the heart)
    * Coronary angiography (X-ray pictures of the heart arteries)
    * Left and right ventriculography (X-ray pictures of the main pumping chambers)
    * Heart biopsy
    * Pericardiocentesis (removing fluid from the sac around the heart)

Electrophysiology (Study and treatment of heart rhythm problems)

    * EP testing to diagnose rhythm disorders
    * Cardioversion to restore a normal heart rhythm
    * Electronic pacemaker insertion (single chamber, dual chamber and biventricular)
    * Internal defibrillator insertion
    * Ablation procedures to cure rhythm disturbances

Coronary and Peripheral Vascular Intervention

    * Balloon angioplasty
    * Rotational, excision and laser atherectomy
    * Coronary and peripheral stent placement
    * Intravascular ultrasound
    * Fractional flow reserve measurements
    * Cryoplasty
    * Embolization therapy
    * Thrombolytic therapy
    * Closure of intracardiac defects (Amplatzer® device)
