Several techniques are used in diagnosing heart damage or disease. Non-invasive procedures are those that use the least invasive technique to determine a diagnosis. Examples of these procedures are echocardiogram and the treadmill stress test or treadmill thallium stress test. If these non-invasive procedures indicate heart problems, you will then be scheduled for more invasive procedures.
We are also proud to be Accredited by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories (ICAEL). The ICAEL was established with the support of the American Society of Echcardiography, the American College of Cardiology and the Society of Pediatric Echocardiography to provide a peer review mechanism to encourage and recognize the provision of quality echocardiographic diagnostic evaluations by a process of voluntary accreditation. Participation is voluntary and accreditation status signifies that the facility has been reviewed by an independent agency which recognizes the lab's commitment to quality testing for the diagnosis of heart disease.
