About the Center for Diagnostic and Therapeutic Cardiology

We provide you with high-quality diagnostics and care for conditions that affect the heart and arteries. We are here help you return to better health as soon as possible.

Our cardiac screening services

We offer several types of diagnostic tests to make sure that we find the medical answers you need. These tests may be used to detect a new or recurring condition or to measure the progress of your care. Our testing services include:

  • Ankle-brachial index tests: This is a noninvasive test to check for peripheral artery disease.
  • At-home monitoring: Also called remote monitoring, at-home monitoring uses event systems connected to an implanted device to provide 24/7 information about your heart health.
  • Cardiac computerized tomography (CT) scans: Heart CT scans use X-rays to generate images of the heart. These images help doctors diagnose birth defects, plaque buildup and a variety of cardiac conditions.
  • Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans: Cardiac MRIs use high-frequency radio waves to produce 3D images of the heart.
  • Echocardiograms: ECGs, which create moving pictures of the heart, show doctors how your heart and heart valves are working.
  • Electrocardiograms (EKGs): EKGs use electrical impulses to record your heart’s electrical activity.
  • Electrophysiology studies: Doctors use the results of these tests to find the source of an abnormal heartbeat.
  • Holter monitors: This is a small, portable device worn on the chest. It tracks the heart’s activity.
  • Rest multigated acquisition (MUGA) scans: Rest MUGA scans are a type of nuclear medicine test that work alongside an ECG to produce detailed, moving images of the heart while the body is resting.
  • Stress tests: Stress tests, such as thallium and treadmill tests, help reveal how well blood is traveling to the heart. Specialists may use these tests to diagnose conditions or determine an appropriate time to schedule surgery.
  • Transesophageal echocardiograms (TEEs): This is one type of test doctors can use to generate images of the heart. Specifically, echocardiograms use ultrasound technology to create these images.
  • Vascular ultrasound studies: Doctors use these noninvasive studies to evaluate blood flow.

These tests are minimally invasive or noninvasive. They are always conducted safely and under the supervision of a medical professional.

Heart conditions we diagnose and treat

The heart and arteries are a complex system that can be affected by several different factors, such as age, diet and exercise. We are able to diagnose and treat many conditions, including:

  • Chest pain
  • Cardiomyopathy (disease of the heart muscle)
  • Heart arrhythmias (abnormal heartbeats)
  • Heart disease
  • Heart failure
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Hypotension (low blood pressure)
  • Shortness of breath

Cardiovascular treatments we offer

After we discover the cause of your heart condition and provide you with a diagnosis, we will work with you to determine an effective treatment plan. Our team of interventional cardiologists are able to perform minimally invasive or noninvasive procedures at our practice.

Some of the procedures we offer include:

  • Cardiac ablation: This is a procedure used to treat tissue causing an abnormal heart beat.
  • Coronary angioplasty: This procedure uses a balloon inserted into the heart to open a blocked artery.
  • Heart failure device implantation: These procedures use implanted devices, such as cardiac defibrillators, for patients at high risk of heart failure.
  • Pacemaker implantation: This procedure implants a small device to help control irregular heartbeats.

If we discover that you are in need of a more significant surgery, our experts will refer you to a highly experienced cardiac surgeon within the TriStar Health network. Our goal is for you to receive the high-quality care you need and deserve as soon as possible.
