Our Heart Center offers latest procedures for the evaluation, comprehensive prevention, diagnosis, treatment and management of heart and blood vessel problems using advanced medical technologies. Our physicians and staff are committed in providing our patients with the best cardiovascular care.
With advanced resources, including leading-edge technology in the hands of our experienced clinicians, the Cardiovascular Center offers the following services:
- Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM)
Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring (ABPM) is a safe device that allows blood pressure to be monitored 24 hours at regular intervals for patients with severe hypertension. The portable monitor is worn on a belt connected to a standard cuff on the upper arm and uses an oscillometric technique to detect systolic, diastolic and mean blood pressure as well as heart rate. When complete, the device is connected to a computer that prepares a report of the 24 hour, day time, night time, and sleep and awake average systolic and diastolic BP and heart rate.
- Cardiac MRI (CMR)
Cardiac MRI (CMR) uses a specialized MRI camera which provides a very accurate assessment of your heart’s structure and function, as well as an evaluation of the status of the major blood vessels within your chest. It can assess if heart function may be improved with bypass surgery or angioplasty in patients with previous heart muscle damage (ie. from a heart attack). Electrodes will be attached to your chest to monitor your heart rhythm. . The actual time in the scanner can range from 30 minutes to one hour.
- Cardiac Event Detector
Cardiac Event Detector: A CED uses a small portable EKG to record your heart rhythm over a period of time, usually several days or weeks. During that time, when you feel any symptoms, you press a button and the monitor records your heart rhythm.
- Cardiac Viability
Cardiac Viability: Cardiac PET (Positron Emission Tomography) Viability is a test to help your physician determine the viable (live and healthy) tissue in the heart muscle. A low dose radiotracer will be injected intravenously. Several blood sugar levels may be obtained via finger stick. The testing process lasts approximately four hours, much of which is waiting to allow the body’s blood sugar levels to regulate. Two scans will be performed during this process which lasts approximately twenty minutes each. No food (including gum or mints) or drink should be consumed after midnight before the test. Bring your morning medicines with you to take when the test is complete. Do not take you medicines prior to the test (this includes injected insulin). Two piece clothing should be worn.
- CT Super Scan
CT Super Scan: 3D real-time images of the heart are captured in a few seconds. A Calcium Scoring test, or more thorough examination can be performed to provide early detection of heart disease.
- Doppler Echocardiography
Doppler Echocardiography: A study of the blood flow through the heart using ultrasonic sound waves performed together with an echocardiogram.
- Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP)
Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP): EECP is a non-invasive, outpatient procedure to relieve angina pectoris by improving coronary blood flow. EECP uses unique equipment to inflate and deflate a series of pneumatic compressive cuffs enclosing the lower extremities
- Electrocardiogram (EKG)
Electrocardiogram (EKG): An EKG records the electrical activity of the heart. EKG measures the heart’s rhythm and rate to determine irregularities in the heart beat.
- Holter Monitoring
Holter Monitoring: A 24-hour recording of the heart rhythm during normal daily activity. Monitor application takes 15 to 20 minutes. Please wear two-piece clothing with a button-up-the-front shirt or blouse.
- Extracorporeal Shockwave Myocardial Revascularisation (ESMR)
Extracorporeal Shockwave Myocardial Revascularisation (ESMR) therapy is a new approach to non-invasive, risk-free therapy using Extracorporeal Shockwave technology for Myocardial Revascularisation to improve the blood supply to the heart muscles. Ischemic myocardial areas no longer accessible by conventional revascularization therapies like Bypass surgery or Ballon Angioplasty and stent, could be treated with the ESMR therapy to relieve symptoms resulted from the mycopcardial ischemia. The whole treatment duration is 20-30 minutes and the patient should undergo series of nine treatment sessions during a nine week period.

- Pacemaker and ICD FOLLOW-UP
- Peripheral Vascular Sonography
- Radionuclide Ventriculography
