Non-Invasive Services

These tests are typically done on an outpatient basis and include:

  • Coronary CT angiography (CTA) - a new diagnostic tool to evaluate noninvasively for coronary artery disease. It can detect blockages much sooner and with greater accuracy. It looks at the walls of the artery, which is where plaque or blockage first develops.
  • Echocardiograms, recording heart function using ultrasound waves, color flow, and doppler modalities
  • Electrocardiograms, recording the electrical activity of the heart
  • Holter monitoring, recording the electrical activity of the heart over an extended period, typically 24-48 hours.
  • Myocardial Perfusion Imaging
  • Signal averaging, analyzing the electrical cycle of the EKG complex in significant rhythm problems

  • Stress test cardiogram, recording the electrical activity of the heart and blood pressure before, during, and after exercise

  • Stress echo, performed with the stress test to provide the most accurate diagnosis possible
  • Transesophageal (TEE), providing the doctor with a clear view of the heart from within the esophagus for more complex cardiac conditions
