The Electrocardiogram and Cardiac Stress Testing
The electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) is a graphic recording of the electrical potential as generated by the heart. Signals are detected by attaching metal electrodes to the extremities and chest wall by means of an adhesive. There is no pain or unpleasant sensation associated with this and it usually takes one or two minutes. Read More

Echocardiography
Heart diseases can take many shapes and forms. The most common heart problems in adults are due to blockage of the blood supply to the heart muscle and can cause heart pain (angina), weakening of the heart muscle, or heart attack. In addition, however, the heart can become ill in other ways. The heart can be congenitally malformed. The heart can become weak even if its blood supply is normal. The heart has four valves that keep blood flowing in the proper direction. Read More

Stress Echocardiography
Heart disease is the leading killer of Americans today, and heart attack is the most visible sign of heart disease. A heart attack occurs when the blood supply to the heart is restricted to the point that a portion of the heart muscle dies. This is usually brought on by blockages in the arteries feeding the heart, known as coronary atherosclerosis, and try to determine the patient's risk of developing a heart attack in the future. In addition these tests can be used to assess the damage to the heart after a heart attack. Read More

Nuclear Cardiology
Heart disease is the leading killer of Americans today, and heart attack is the most visible sign of heart disease. A heart attack occurs when the blood supply to the heart is restricted to the point that a portion of the heart muscle dies. This is usually brought on by blockages in the arteries feeding the heart, known as coronary atherosclerosis. Cardiologists use several different tests to discover whether a patient has significant coronary atherosclerosis, and to try to determine the patient's risk of developing a heart attack in the future. In addition, these tests can be used to assess muscle strength.Read More

Cardiac Catheterization Angioplasty and Stent Procedures
Cardiac catheterization is a procedure that involves the insertion of a catheter, a long thin flexible tube into the heart. Cardiac catheterization is a valuable diagnostic tool since it gives the physician the opportunity to visually access the function of the heart. Cardiac catheterization enables doctors to diagnose coronary heart disease, evaluate heart valve function of the heart valves and detect congenital heart defects. Normal arteries are smooth and flexible allowing blood to flow through them easily. Over the years arterial walls may become plugged with fatty deposits. Read More
