Non-Invasive Cardiovascular Laboratory

Detecting heart problems and abnormalities on inpatient or outpatient basis

Our Non-Invasive Cardiovascular Laboratory offers high-quality, painless diagnostic procedures to identify heart issues or diseases on an inpatient or outpatient basis. These tests require no needles, dyes, or x-rays, and come with no risks or side effects.

Our team includes certified cardiovascular technologists, peripheral vascular ultrasound technologists, electrocardiography technicians, and board-certified adult and pediatric cardiologists. We are staffed 24 hours a day for emergency care. Our advanced diagnostic equipment enables the team to assist physicians, cardiologists, and other specialists in obtaining high-quality test results.

VASCULAR

  • Carotid Duplex Scan
  • Arterial and Venous Duplex Scan
  • Ankle-Brachial Index
  • DVT Screening

Commonly performed diagnostics include:

  • Cardiac stress testing – Also known as treadmill exercise test or exercise EKG, it helps a doctor find out how well your heart handles work.
  • 24-hour Holter monitoring – Used in diagnosing heart rhythm disturbances that may occur at times when you are away from the doctor, used in line with a written diary or log of your daily activities.
  • Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring – A widely accepted clinical tool to collect multiple blood pressure measurements, helping clinicians diagnose and manage hypertension.
  • Ankle-brachial index (ABI) – A simple, reliable test for diagnosing PAD in the legs, and whether it is restricting blood flow in your legs.
  • Dobutamine stress echocardiogram – Used when a doctor seeks to assess the heart muscle under stress. If exercising on a treadmill puts too much stress on the heart, a doctor may use the intravenous medication dobutamine.
  • Stress echocardiogram – Combines an ultrasound study of the heart with an exercise test, allowing the doctor to learn how the heart functions when it must work harder.
  • Echocardiography – Also called “echo,” an echocardiogram is a graphic outline of the heart’s movement. During the test, ultrasound that comes from a handheld wand placed on the chest is used to produce pictures of the heart’s valves and chambers, and help the sonographer evaluate the heart’s pumping action.
  • Venous duplex / doppler studies and deep vein thrombosis screening – A duplex imaging of the lower extremity venous system, detecting deep or superficial thrombosis of the extremities.
  • Carotid duplex / doppler studies – Duplex imaging that produces a 2D image in grey scale of the vessel walls, showing any plaque formation and indicating any irregularities, stenoses, or occlusions.
