Computed tomography angiography is an exam that uses a contrast (dye) that is placed into the blood stream so that vessels in the body can be seen when an internal image is taken.
Heart & Vascular Care Diagnostics
Coronary angiography or coronary arteriography uses X-ray and contrast (dye) to capture images of the coronary arteries, the arteries that bring blood to the heart.
Echocardiography, also known as an echocardiogram and echo test, is a painless test that uses sound waves, ultrasound, to produce images of your heart—showing its size, structure and motion.
An electrocardiogram, better known as an EKG, is a noninvasive diagnostic test that uses electrodes to record the electrical activity of the heart while active and at rest.
An electrophysiology (EP) study is a test that records the electrical activity and the electrical pathways of your heart.
Holter monitoring—also known as ambulatory electrocardiography (EKG)—is a battery-operated, portable device that measures and records the heart’s electrical activity.
MemorialCare’s laboratory services provide comprehensive and dependable diagnostic tests to our hospitals and physician partners.
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an imaging technology platform that aids cardiologists in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease.
Peripheral angiography captures images of peripheral arteries (arteries in the lower abdomen, kidneys, arms, legs and feet).
A stress test helps determine how the heart functions during exercise to diagnose coronary artery disease, heart-related conditions, and to examine the effectiveness of heart treatments.
Venous duplex scan is a painless exam that uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to capture images of internal views of veins that return blood to the heart.
