Angioplasty

Angioplasty is a procedure used to open blocked coronary arteries caused by coronary artery disease. It restores blood flow to the heart muscle without open-heart surgery.

Stenting

A stent is a small mesh tube typically used to hold open passages in the body, such as weak or narrowed arteries.

Nuclear cardiology

Nuclear cardiology studies use noninvasive techniques to assess myocardial blood flow, evaluate the pumping function of the heart as well as visualize the size and location of a heart attack.

Echocardiography

An echocardiogram checks how your heart’s chambers and valves are pumping blood through your heart.

Cardiac electrophysiology

An electrophysiology (EP) study is a test performed to assess your heart’s electrical system or activity and is used to diagnose abnormal heartbeats or arrhythmia. 

Stress tests

Stress tests show how well your heart handles physical activity. Your heart pumps harder and faster when you exercise.

Heart monitors

A Holter monitor is a small, wearable device that records the heart’s rhythm. It’s used to detect or determine the risk of irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias).

CT scans

A CT scan is a diagnostic imaging procedure that uses a combination of X-rays and computer technology to produce images of the inside of the body

Coronary artery disease

Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common type of heart disease in the United States. It is sometimes called coronary heart disease or ischemic heart disease.

Aortic stenosis

Aortic stenosis is a type of heart valve disease. The valve between the lower left heart chamber and the body’s main artery (aorta) is narrowed and doesn’t open fully which reduces or blocks blood flow from the heart to the aorta and to the rest of the body.

Peripheral vascular disease

Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is a blood circulation disorder that causes the blood vessels outside of your heart and brain to narrow, block, or spasm. 

Cardiac Catheterization

Cardiac catheterization is a procedure in which a thin, flexible tube (catheter) is guided through a blood vessel to the heart to diagnose or treat certain heart conditions, such as clogged arteries or irregular heartbeats.

Non-invasive and Invasive Cardiology

Non-invasive cardiology identifies heart problems without using any needles, fluids, or other instruments which are inserted into the body. Invasive cardiology uses open or minimally invasive surgery to identify or treat structural or electrical abnormalities within the heart structure.

Interventional Cardiology

Interventional cardiology is the subspecialty of cardiology that deals specifically with the catheter- based treatment of heart diseases. The field includes the diagnosis and treatment of coronary artery disease, vascular disease and acquired structural heart disease.
