Cardiac Advanced Imaging Program
Capturing and interpreting images of the heart are essential to successfully managing cardiac conditions. Our program features advanced technology to capture images of the heart, which allows our physicians to make accurate diagnoses and determine the best course of treatment. Among the techniques we use are nuclear cardiology, echocardiography, and cardiac CT (computed tomography) imaging, a diagnostic method that allows us to take images of blood vessels, bones, and internal organs.
Our nuclear cardiology laboratories offer such state-of-the-art imaging techniques as single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), positron emission tomography (PET), and SPECT-CT, and our team has a long history of groundbreaking research in cardiovascular nuclear imaging. Our echocardiography (ultrasound) laboratories provide a comprehensive array of 2-D and 3-D transthoracic (chest wall) and transesophageal (through the esophagus) imaging options, as well as intracardiac echo imaging (ICE), an imaging technique that allows physicians to get a clear picture of the inner workings of the heart.
