Using advanced technology, like Doppler ultrasound, the labs determine the blood flow reaching vital organs and limbs, blockages or abnormalities within the heart, arteries of the neck, arms, legs and abdomen. These findings of these test results are rapidly reported to the physicians. This important information helps physicians determine the course of treatment for each patient.
Diagnostic tests and screenings for cardiac and vascular issues include:
Cardiac Stress Testing
Intracardiac ECHO (ICE)
Holter Monitor Testing
Intravascular Ultrasound - IVUS
Vascular Disease Screenings
Vascular abdominal ultrasound
Vascular arterial-lower extremity ultrasound
Vascular cerebrovascular ultrasound
Vascular upper extremities ultrasound
Vascular venous-lower extremity ultrasound
