Specializing in a “radial first” minimally invasive approach through the wrist to make the diagnosis of coronary atherosclerosis by angiography. We provide treatment of coronary arteries and bypass grafts utilizing a state of the art catheterization laboratory and techniques including intravascular ultrasound and other imaging modalities.
Cardiac nuclear medicine imaging evaluates the heart for coronary artery disease and cardiomyopathy. It can also be used to help determine if the heart has been damaged by chemotherapy or radiotherapy. The images obtained provide unique information that often cannot be obtained using other imaging procedures.
2D/3D CARDIAC ULTRA SOUND
Echocardiography allows visualization of cardiac structures, valves, cardiac walls and the velocity of blood flow at certain points in the heart. We use the latest in 3D imaging to evaluate valves and other parts of the heart. This non-invasive test can be done comfortably in our clinic by one of our experienced sonographers.

Interventional cardiology is the subspecialty of cardiology that uses specialized catheter-based techniques to diagnose and treat coronary artery disease, vascular disease, structural heart disease, and congenital heart defects. Interventional cardiologists use various diagnostic tools and imaging techniques to measure cardiovascular functions such as blood pressure and blood flow in major arteries throughout the body and within the different chambers of the heart.
Nuclear cardiology studies use noninvasive techniques to assess myocardial blood flow, evaluate the pumping function of the heart as well as visualize the size and location of a heart attack. Among the techniques of nuclear cardiology, myocardial perfusion imaging is the most widely used.
A cardiovascular disease specialist is an internist who specializes in diseases of the heart and blood vessels and manages complex cardiac conditions such as heart attacks and life-threatening, abnormal heart rhythms.
