They offer a full range of in-office cardiovascular testing such as:
Using electrodes attached to your chest, an EKG picks up and records the electrical activity in your heart. An EKG is often the first test performed to diagnose symptoms that suggest heart problems.
Echocardiography, also called an echocardiogram, uses ultrasound to create an image of your heart, showing how well the heart muscle and valves function.
Vascular imaging uses ultrasound, including Doppler ultrasound, to detect problems in arteries and veins throughout your body, including blockages, narrowed vessels, and aneurysms.
Your doctor orders stress testing to evaluate your blood flow and function of your heart during physical activity such as walking on a treadmill.
Nuclear cardiology (conducted in a hospital setting)
Nuclear cardiologists use noninvasive techniques such as myocardial perfusion imaging to evaluate the heart’s blood flow and pumping ability.
If you experience cardiovascular symptoms, call your physician at Coral Gables Cardiology Associates, P.A. right away.
