Diagnostic Cardiovascular Services
Basic tests such as an electrocardiogram, treadmill stress test, cardiopulmonary exercise test, and blood work can help your physician to know your risk of cardiovascular disease. We offer a wide range of diagnostic heart health tests and screening services at our Naperville and Elmhurst clinics to diagnose cardiovascular disease.
How we can help
In addition to basic testing, imaging and ultrasound tests can further help to diagnose a cardiovascular condition.
- Computed Tomography Imaging (CT) imaging is a non-invasive diagnostic method of body imaging that uses x-rays and leading-edge technology to create detailed pictures of structures inside the body.
- Cardiac Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans measure the blood flow brought by the coronary arteries to the heart muscle, with clearer and sharper images resulting in more accurate diagnosis and treatment.
- An echocardiogram is a simple ultrasound study that provides images of the heart, helping to determine its structure and functioning capacity.
- The carotid ultrasound evaluates the amount of blockage (if any) in the carotid arteries and takes about 20-30 minutes to complete.
- The aorta is the large vessel in the middle of the body that distributes blood from the heart to all areas of the body. This test is usually performed in the morning on an empty stomach (low residual diet) and takes 30- 60 minutes to complete.
- The renal artery ultrasound evaluates the amount of blockage (if any) in the renal arteries and kidneys. The renal arteries distribute blood to the kidneys. The renal artery may narrow and cause kidney failure or high blood pressure.
- A venous ultrasound shows how the blood flows through your veins. The blood flow direction
