Cardiac Imaging Services

We’re proud of the unique blend of compassionate, collaborative medical care and advanced imaging services we provide, including:

Angioplasty: A vascular procedure, image-guidance is used for precision in delivery of a balloon-tipped catheter to a narrowed or blocked blood vessel. Once there, the balloon is inflated to open the blood vessel, then deflated and removed.

Locations:

Cardiac MRI:  A cardiovascular imaging procedure, using a magnetic field and radio frequency waves to produce images used to evaluate and diagnose heart disease.

Locations:

CT Scan: A form of x-ray that rotates around the body, this type of imaging captures cross-sectional images that are then combined by computer to create a detailed, 3D view of organs, tissue and bone.

Locations:

Inferior Vena Cava (IVC) Filter Insertions: This vascular procedure involves placement of filters to prevent blood clots in the legs from traveling to the heart or lungs.

Locations:

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): This form of imaging uses a powerful magnetic field, radio frequency pulses and computer software to create detailed pictures of organs, soft tissues and bone without radiation.

Locations:

MIBI Stress Test: Also called a nuclear stress test or myocardial perfusion scan, this cardiac imaging test combines a nuclear scan of the heart and an electrocardiogram (EKG) with a stress test (exercise or using medication).

Locations:

Nuclear Medicine: This type of imaging procedure that uses trace amounts of radioactive material to identify many conditions in their early stages, including cancer, heart disease, gastrointestinal, endocrine, neurological disorders and others. 

Dialysis Access: A vascular procedure, image guidance is used to place a portal through which a patient can receive dialysis.

Locations:

PICC Placement: This vascular procedure involves insertion of a catheter into a blood vessel for delivery of medication or to make it easier to draw frequent blood samples.

Locations:

Port Placement: This vascular procedure involves insertion of a tiny “port” beneath the skin (usually in the chest) for efficient delivery of medication directly into an artery.

Locations:

SPECT: This type of nuclear imaging uses a specialized camera to take pictures from multiple angles, producing detailed, 3-D images.

Locations:

Ultrasound: This imaging technology uses high-frequency sound waves to look at organs and structures within the body.

Locations:

Vascular Imaging: Imaging is used to evaluate the circulatory system in order to detect blood clots and identify blockages.

X-ray: Sometimes called a radiograph, this is a basic form of imaging that uses a small amount of radiation to allow for the visualization of internal structures and organs.
