Tests & Treatments

  • CT Scan
    A series of X-rays that can be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body in 3-D is known as a CT scan.

  • Cardiac Catheterization
    Our interventional cardiologists have pioneered some of the most advanced interventional alternatives to surgery for the treatment of coronary artery disease.

  • Chest Xray
    A chest X-ray may be one of the first procedures your physician will perform to arrive at a diagnosis of a wide variety of conditions.

  • Echocardiogram
    Our radiologists and cardiologists use the latest ultrasound technology while performing an echocardiogram to assess your heart's ability to pump, as well as identify abnormalities with your heart muscle and valves.

  • Electrocardiogram
    An electrocardiogram is performed to assess the electrical activity of the heart to detect arrhythmias, coronary artery disease and heart muscle damage.

  • Home Sleep Test
    The home sleep test is a modified version of a sleep study, self-administered in your home with a portable monitor, rather than sleeping overnight in a sleep laboratory.

  • Nuclear Medicine Scan
    A nuclear medicine scan is a test that produces pictures of organs and areas of the body that cannot be seen well with standard X-rays.

  • Pulmonary Function Tests
    By assessing lung volumes, capacities, rates of flow and gas exchange, PFTs provide information that, when evaluated by your physician, can help diagnosis certain lung disorders.

  • Sleep Study
    At our state-of-the-art facility, a polysomnogram, also referred to as a sleep study, is one of the many diagnostic tools that are used to determine the causes of sleep disorders. A home sleep study may be possible for some patients as well.
