Testing Procedures

| See Cardiology Testing Locations 

Angioplasty
A long, thin, flexible tube ("catheter") with a balloon at the tip is threaded through an artery into a blocked blood vessel.  The doctor inflates the balloon to open the artery so blood can flow through easily.

Cardiac Catheterization
A long, thin, flexible tube ("catheter") is placed into a blood vessel and threaded to your heart.  Through the tube, doctors can open blocked arteries. 

Electrocardiogram (EKG)
An electrocardiogram is a simple and fast procedure that checks for problems with the electrical activity of your heart.

Echocardiography (Echo)
Echocardiography evaluates the function of heart muscle and identifies any possible structural problems.

Heart Imaging
These procedures measure blood flow to the heart muscle both at rest and during stress on the heart. These images show areas of low blood flow through the heart and areas of damaged heart muscle.

Stress Test
