Vascular Testing

Meet_Us_1

Carotid Doppler

A non-invasive test that uses sound waves to measure the flow of blood through the large carotid arteries that supply blood to your brain. These arteries can narrow down due to atherosclerosis, and may increase your risk of developing a stroke.

Arterial Doppler

A non-invasive test that uses sound waves to measure the flow of blood through the arteries in your lower and upper extremities – used to detect arterial circulation abnormalities.

Venous Doppler

A non-invasive test that uses sound waves to measure the flow of blood through the veins in your upper and lower extremities – useful for the diagnosis of venous insufficiency and blood clots.

Cardiac Testing

EKG

An EKG, or electrocardiogram, records the electrical activity of your heart and translates this activity to line tracings on a paper. The spikes and dips in the lines are called waves, and are used to determine many things about your heart, including unexplained chest pains, dizziness, fainting, irregular heartbeats, heart chamber activity and so much more.

Holter monitors

A small medical device used to detect and evaluate sporadic, irregular heart rhythms. You will wear the device for 24-48 hours while the monitor records your heartbeat. More information is obtained from a diary we ask you to write in to record any symptoms you may be experiencing, like palpitations or racing heart.

Stress testing

A diagnostic test carried out to see whether a person has heart disease. There are many types of stress tests, but the most common test is the exercise electrocardiogram.

Cardiac event monitors

This is a small medical device used to monitor patients with transient cardiac symptoms. It’s usually worn for 2-3 weeks at a time for the purpose of “catching” and recording less frequent symptoms.

Echocardiography

A test that makes use of pulsed or continuous wave Doppler ultrasound to take a picture of your heart. This test also allows doctors to view the velocity of blood and cardiac tissue for diagnostic purposes.

Cardiac Device Monitoring : Pacemaker, Defibrillators

All cardiac devices need routine scanning for proper functionality every 6 months, or more frequently if the doctor is concerned, regarding possible device malfunction. We can perform these tests on your device right in our offices utilizing a device programmer.

Stress Echo

A form of echocardiography in which an echocardiographer takes pictures of your heart in its resting conditions. Then, you exercise on a treadmill, or piece of equipment to increase your heart rate. When you reach your maximum exercise capacity, a second set of images are obtained within one minute and compared to the baseline images. Typically, it only takes a 50% blockage of a coronary artery to cause changes on the images, which can be used for early detection of heart disease.

Nuclear stress test

A stress test that measures blood flow to your heart muscle, both at rest and during stress on the heart. It’s performed similarly to a routine exercise stress test, but provides images that can show areas of low blood flow through your heart and areas of damaged heart muscle.
