Our Areas Of Expertise

Interventional cardiology uses catheters to treat certain heart conditions. Catheterization is minimally invasive and can be used for a broad range of treatments, from diagnosing a heart issue to repairing a congenital defect. This includes precision angioplasty that uses 3D intravascular imaging to allow for precise placement of stents.

Cardiovascular imaging refers to noninvasive imaging of the heart. We use the most advanced technology to quickly obtain detailed images of the heart, allowing us to detect and diagnose conditions earlier and more accurately.

Our services include:

  • Cardiac CT—provides numerous detailed images of the heart and its blood vessels
  • Cardiac MRI—provides high-resolution, high-definition images of the heart without using radiation
  • Echocardiography—uses ultrasound, or sound waves, to produce images of the heart
  • Nuclear Imaging—uses small amounts of radioactive substances to create images of the heart
