We evaluate all types of cardiovascular symptoms and problems and coordinate the appropriate treatment and testing for each individual patient. Many of the tests are done within our office. Below is a list of different types of test that may be recommended.
Cardiac PET Nuclear Stress testing: This is a highly specialized nuclear stress test that is unique to our practice in this area. It decreases total test time, reduces total radiation exposure and reduces false positive test results in certain types of patients. We also offer traditional nuclear cardiac stress testing with SPECT imaging
ECHO: Ultrasound test of the heart to look for weak heart muscle, abnormal valves or other structural abnormalities.
Electrocardiogram (ECG): Used to diagnose rhythm problems or other cardiac abnormalities.
Exercise Treadmill Test: A regular treadmill test to diagnose exercise related symptoms and to screen for significant coronary artery disease in certain patients.
Pacemaker and Defibrillator evaluation and monitoring
Coumadin Clinic with the option for home testing
Carotid Doppler: Ultrasound test of the carotid arteries to diagnose blocked arteries and potential risk for stroke.
Abdominal Ultrasound for AAA: Ultrasound test of the abdomen to look for a dilated aorta (aortic aneurysm).
Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI): A simple BP and ultrasound assessment that screens for significant PAD (peripheral artery disease).
Cardiac CTA: A specialized CT scan of the heart that in certain patient can exclude or identify severe significant coronary artery disease.
Calcium Score Test: A simple screening test that can identify the presence of any calcified plaque in the heart arteries.
Venous Ultrasound: Helps assess for blood clots in the legs as well as diagnose chronic vein disease and varicose veins.
Carroll Precision Imaging Center
Carroll Precision Imaging Center is located within our office complex. This is where we perform our cardiac PET stress testing with a specialized camera and nuclear technician to walk you through the process. In addition, we also provide FDG PET testing for oncology and neurology imaging to help with diagnosis of certain types of cancer and also help your physician follow response to treatment. These studies are reviewed by Radiologists specifically trained in FDG PET imaging.
