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.

  • ECMO (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation)
    Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation provides prolonged respiratory and cardiac support to patients whose lungs and heart are so severely diseased or damaged that they cannot normally function on their own.

  • 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.

  • Electrophysiological Studies
    Electrophysiological (EP) studies assess the electrical activity of the heart and pinpoint the location and severity of a possible arrhythmia.

  • Heart Transplant
    Our team of experienced specialists will work with you and your family to provide personal support for all the medical and emotional needs that can accompany a heart transplant.

  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
    Our specialists often use advanced MRI technology to obtain visual detail of organs and tissues to help detect many conditions.

  • Pacemaker Insertion
    If your heart is beating too slowly or if you have been diagnosed with congestive heart failure, you may need to have a pacemaker implanted.
