  • Cardiac MRI
  • Computed Tomography (CT) of Heart
  • Multiple Gated Acquisition (MUGA) Scanning
  • Cardiac Echo
  • Serum Electrolyte Panel
  • Cardiac Electrophysiologic Study
  • Cardiovascular Stress Test
  • Serum troponin I measurement
  • Plasma B-Type Natriuretic Peptide (BNP) Level
  • Radionuclide Myocardial Perfusion Study
  • Serum troponin T measurement
  • Creatine Kinase Isoenzyme, MB Fraction (CKMB) Level Test

  • An echocardiogram is a test that uses sound waves to produce live images of your heart, allowing your doctor to monitor how your heart and its valves are functioning.An echocardiogram, also referred to as "echo," can help spot blood clots in the h
  • An intracardiac electrophysiology study is a minimally invasive procedure that helps cardiologists diagnose heart rhythm problems, which are also known as arrhythmias . During the study, your doctor threads catheters (or long, thin wires) into y
  • An exercise stress test is used to determine how well your heart responds during times when it is working the hardest. During the test, you will be asked to exercise-typically on a treadmill-while you are hooked up to an electrocardiogram (EKG).
  • A computed tomography scan-commonly called a CT scan-is a test that uses X-rays to view your heart and blood vessels. These scans use safe amounts of radiation to create detailed images of the body, which can help your doctor to detect any problem
  • A thallium stress test is a nuclear imaging test that shows how well blood flows into the heart during exercise and at rest. A radioisotope (nuclear material) is administered intravenously. It settles into the heart muscle and pinpoints spots
  • Enzymes are complex proteins that facilitate chemical changes in every part of the body. Your body needs enzymes to function. The CPK isoenzymes test is a way to measure the levels of an enzyme called creatine phosphokinase (CPK) in your blood.
