Diagnostic Testing for Heart Conditions

Diagnostic Testing

The human heart is a hard-working muscle that is vital for the proper functioning of the rest of the body. Without a healthy heart, your organs and tissues cannot receive adequate oxygen and nutrients, keeping them from performing at their optimal levels. There are many diagnostic procedures, both old and new, that physicians have at their disposal to check a patient’s cardiac condition. These diagnostic tests include, but are not limited to:

  • Contrast Echocardiography
    This test uses a contrast agent to visualize the structures of your heart with great clarity and detail. The contrast agent enhances the “echoes” that are reflected back from the heart to the transducer, which allows a physician to monitor various aspects of cardiac function.
  • Echocardiogram
    An echocardiogram is a test that uses the echoes of sound waves to produce a live image of the heart in motion. This test visualizes the shape and size of the heart and its chambers and valves.
  • Exercise Tolerance ECG
    This test monitors the functioning of your heart in response to increases and decreases in physical activity.
  • Holter Monitor
    When your physician cannot ‘catch’ a cardiac problem with a single ECG, he or she may order a Holter monitor test. This test is used to monitor the heart rhythm and rate continuously for a certain period of time.
  • Nuclear Imaging
    This test is performed to monitor the blood flow to the heart muscle through the coronary arteries. The scan uses a radioactive ‘tracer’ to visualize the blood flow to the heart muscle.
  • Vascular Ultrasound
    In this test, images of the vascular system are formed by ultrasound to evaluate the body’s arteries and veins.
