Diagnostic Tests

Diagnostic Tests

The Heart and Vascular Center of Excellence can perform a number of tests to properly diagnose your heart condition.

Cardiac 64-Slice CT

Memorial's new, state-of-the-art digital imaging provides exceptionally precise images with half the radiation exposure of older systems.

EKG

An electrocardiogram (EKG/ECG) is a test that measures the electrical activity of one's heartbeat.

Echocardiography

Echocardiography, or echo, is a painless test that uses sound waves to create moving pictures of your heart.

Ultrasound

The ability to peer inside the body can be a powerful tool. Ultrasound is an imaging technique that provides that ability to medical practitioners.

Stress Tests

With a stress test, the activity of your heart is measured with an electrocardiogram (ECG) and your blood pressure readings are taken while you are exercising or exercise is simulated.
