Diagnostic Testing and Imaging Services

UTMC offers a wide range of cardiac testing and imaging services on site at the Heart and Vascular Center, including:

  • Aortic ultrasound scan to detect aneurysm
  • Cardiac nuclear myocardial functional imaging to measure the Ejection Fraction that shows how well the heart is working
  • Carotid duplex scan to detect blockages in circulation to the brain
  • Chest x-rays to show the size and shape of the heart and detect any diseases in your lungs or other chest structures
  • Doppler test to measure circulation to the legs and detect peripheral arterial disease
  • Echocardiogram (ECHO) to evaluate the structure and function of the heart valves or the heart chambers, using soundwaves.
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG/ECG) for recording electrical changes in the heart
  • Holter monitor/event monitors to detect heart disease such as abnormal heart rhythms
  • Nuclear scan/cardiac perfusion dobutamine imaging to detect narrowed, blocked or damaged arteries
  • Stress echocardiogram to show whether your heart pumps normally during exercise and your coronary arteries can meet your heart’s increased demand for blood
  • Transesophageal echocardiogram to create a clear image of the heart muscle and other parts of the heart
  • Treadmill exercise stress test to determine heart response to physical exertion (stress)
