HEART PICTURES FOR DIAGNOSIS

Northside Hospital Cardiovascular Institute cardiologists rely on pictures of your heart to see its condition at rest and under stress to determine the proper therapies. For instance, we conduct a heart positron emission tomography scan – a PET scan – while you’re at rest, using a radioactive substance that helps us see how well blood is flowing in your heart. In comparison, a heart stress test involves you walking on a treadmill or pedaling an exercise bike as an ultrasound image is made of your heart. We also perform CTAs, MRIs and more, including:

  • Echocardiography (including 3D and strain imaging)
  • Transesophageal echocardiography
  • Nuclear and other stress testing
  • PET scanning
  • Coronary Calcium Score
  • Cardiac and coronary CTA
  • Vascular US
  • Cardiac MRI
