Cardiac Imaging

Heart Pictures for Diagnosis

Our 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 single photon emission computerized tomography scan – a SPECT 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 as an ultrasound image is made of your heart. We also perform CTAs, MRIs and more.
