Electrocardiogram

An electrocardiogram, also called an EKG or ECG, is a simple test that detects and records the electrical activity of the heart. It is used to detect and locate the source of heart problems. An EKG shows how fast the heart is beating. It shows the heart's rhythm (steady or irregular) and where in the body the heartbeat is being recorded. It also records the strength and timing of the electrical signals as they pass through each part of the heart.

Holter Monitors

Holter and event monitors are medical devices that record the heart's electrical activity. Doctors most often use these monitors to diagnose arrhythmias. Holter and event monitors also are used to detect silent myocardial ischemia. In this condition, not enough oxygen-rich blood reaches the heart muscle. "Silent" means that no symptoms occur.

Treadmill Stress Test

Stress testing provides your doctor with information about how your heart works during physical stress. Some heart problems are easier to diagnose when your heart is working hard and beating fast. During a stress test, you exercise (walk or run on a treadmill or pedal a bicycle) or are given a medicine to make your heart work harder while heart tests are performed.

Venous Duplex

A venous duplex is an advanced ultrasound procedure performed to evaluate the blood flowing through the arms or legs in patients experiencing pain, swelling or bulging veins within the extremities. During this exam, a transducer will be moved across the skin of the targeted area to transmit sound waves that are then converted into images of the blood vessels. The results of a duplex procedure can be used to diagnose deep vein thrombosis, blood clots or chronic venous insufficiency.
