We offer a variety of in-office procedures for the convenience of both patients and physicians. Our procedures include echocardiograms, contrast echocardiograms, stress echocardiograms, bilateral carotid dopplers, IMT screening, and AAA screening.
An echocardiogram uses ultrasound waves to generate images of your heart for further analysis. Using the image from an echocardiogram a physician is able to monitor your heart activity along with diagnose any abnormalities in the heart muscle or valves. LEARN MORE
This procedure is used primarily in the detection of intracardiac shunts. This is an abnormality in the flow of blood due to holes in cardiac walls that separate blood that is leaving the heart muscle from blood that is returning. LEARN MORE
Like other echocardiograms, a stress echo can review the hearts overall condition. One added benefit of this test is the ability to review the effectiveness of a heart treatment plan by viewing the heart under stress (exercise). LEARN MORE
BILATERAL CAROTID DOPPLER
A narrow carotid artery indicates an increased risk of stroke. Our bilateral doppler ultrasound reviews the build up of plaque in the carotid artery on both sides of the neck and allows physicians to preemptively treat patients to decrease the risk of stroke. LEARN MORE
Our non-invasive IMT (Intima Media Thickness) screen lasts approximately 2-5 minutes and can detect the state of your coronary artery including plaque deposits and thickness. This procedure is recommended by the American Heart Association and is approved by the National Cholesterol Education Program. LEARN MORE
Screening for Abdominal Aorta Aneurysm is important because even a small rupture can cause life-threatening bleeding requiring further monitoring or even emergency surgery. Just a single screening allows your physician to decide whether or not you should be further tested or to quickly respond if surgery is required. LEARN MORE
