Cardiac Ultrasound is commonly called “2D-Echo” and performed in the Millennium Cardiology Office. 2D-Echo provides data on the size of the heart, how well the heart pumps, and if there are any problems with the valves.
Performed in the Millennium Cardiology Office, stress testing is used to determine if there are severe blockages in the coronary arteries that may need to be fixed with angioplasty (balloon) or stent.
The holter monitor will help your doctor determine how your heart functions during normal everyday activities. It also provides your doctor with valuable information about the rhythm of your heart and allows him to determine if your symptoms correlate with any changes in your heart rhythm.
Event Monitor is usually worn for 30 days. The Event Monitor can provide your physician with valuable information about the rhythm of your heart. It allows the physician to determine if your symptoms correlate with any changes or irregularities in your heart rhythm.
Patients with symptomatic varicose veins are treated with a procedure called radiofrequency ablation (RFA) to burn incompetent veins in the legs and relieve the pain, swelling, discoloration, and bulging vessels.
Outside services frequently ordered.
Performed in the Millennium Diagnostic Center, ultrasound is performed on arteries (carotid, abdominal aorta, legs) and veins (mostly legs) to help diagnose blood clots, blockages, or insufficient blood flow.
Commonly called “CT,” performed in the Millennium Diagnostic Center, CT provides information on the arteries in the brain and throughout the body in regards to dilation or aneurysm formation, blockages or “stenosis,” and other vessel characteristics.
Performed in the Millennium Diagnostic Center, this test determines if patients have atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries). Calcium scoring is an excellent tool for risk stratification.
Performed in the hospital, patients undergo this invasive procedure, under sedation, to definitively assess the severity of blockages in the arteries of the heart. If there is a blockage, angioplasty and stenting is performed at the same time.
Performed in the hospital, for patients with atrial fibrillation where there is a desire to try an restore the normal sinus rhythm. Patients are brought into the electrophysiology laboratory and after adequately sedated, electric current is administered to “shock” the heart back to normal.
Commonly called “TEE,” performed in the hospital, TEE is used in patients with an abnormality found on 2D-Echo, but further clarification is needed. This test is also performed to make sure cardioversion is safe in patients with atrial fibrillation.
Commonly called “MUGA,” performed in the Millennium Diagnostic Center, MUGA provides the most reliable assessment of the pumping function of the left ventricle, the chamber in the heart responsible for pumping blood throughout the body.
Commonly called “MRI,” performed in the Millennium Diagnostic Center, MRI provides anatomic information similar to C.T. scanning without radiation and with a different contrast agent called gadolinium.
