And the Beat Goes On

To detect diseases of the heart.

An electrical tracing of heart activity to detect and diagnose various heart conditions. This is performed routinely at the time of visit should a heart condition be suspected.

ecg2Echo Cardiogram:
An ultrasound examination of the heart which measures the pumping action of the heart and also inspects the chambers, valves, and overall function of the heart. Doppler is used to check the flow of blood through the various chambers of the heart.

stress-echoStress testing:
Exercise stress testing involves walking on a motorized treadmill with continuous electrocardiogram monitoring. Testing is performed in order to: detect coronary heart disease, assess functional evaluation of patient, and also prior to recommending a vigorous exercise program.

holter-monitoringHolter Monitoring:
A 24-hour monitoring of the electrical activity of the heart to detect any irregularities of the heart rhythm and also to check for any silent ischemia (poor oxygen supply to the heart muscle). The test involves attaching a small monitor with wire leads to the chest wall. The monitor is worn by the patient for 24 hours while the patient continues routine activities. After 24 hours, the monitor is then connected to a special computer. The number of events and the time the event occurs is recorded. Analyzing these events aids in discovering any number of abnormalities if present.

We have several types of ultrasound exams, which use high-frequency sound waves to detect cardiovascular irregularities. We offer both Carotid Ultrasound, and Peripheral Vascular Ultrasound.
