Non Invasive Cardiology

Non-invasive cardiology diagnoses heart issues without the insertion of needles, fluids, or other instruments into your body. Accurate diagnostic evaluation forms the basis of rational therapy, which will minimize morbidity and mortality. Patients with a history of heart disease, suspected valve disease, or chest pain with unknown cause may be referred by their physician for a non-invasive evaluation.

The Amelia Heart & Vascular Center is available to see and diagnose patients with advanced and unstable heart disease and provide expert care both on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Our highly skilled technologists and nurses have the latest technology to detect heart disease, allowing our cardiologists to discover the potential problems in their earliest stages. We pride ourselves on delivering safe, quality care in a patient-centered environment.

The advantage of non-invasive cardiology is the avoidance of scars and post-operative recovery. Additionally, the non-invasive cardiology procedure of primary angioplasty is now the standard of excellence of care for acute myocardial infarction.

Personalized Care for Non-invasive Cardiology

At Amelia Heart & Vascular Center, we are equipped with the most up-to-date diagnostic equipment, including sophisticated echocardiography machines to perform two and three-dimensional echocardiograms. It includes conventional and tissue Doppler echocardiograms, color flow mapping of these echocardiograms, and obtaining and recording echocardiograms during stress testing, dobutamine infusion, and contrast infusion.

Our diagnostic tests, including exercise stress testing, event monitoring, Holter monitoring, nuclear stress test, exercise stress echocardiogram, echocardiogram and an electrocardiogram — help our physicians better evaluate your condition and plan the best possible treatment. We will thoroughly examine your symptoms, ask for a detailed history of your symptoms, learn about your risk factors that may contribute to your medical condition, discuss any family history of illness.
