Diagnostic Tests

Diagnostic Tests

The Heart and Vascular Center of Excellence can perform a number of tests to properly diagnose your heart condition.

CT Angiography Coronary

Memorial’s state-of-the-art digital imaging provides exceptionally precise images with half the radiation exposure of older systems.

Cardiac Calcium Scoring

A Cardiac Calcium Scoring test uses CT imaging to check for plaque or calcium buildup in the arteries. This buildup can cause heart disease.


An electrocardiogram (EKG/ECG) is a test that measures the electrical activity of one’s heartbeat.


Echocardiography, or echo, is a painless test that uses sound waves to create moving pictures of your heart.


The ability to peer inside the body can be a powerful tool. Ultrasound is an imaging technique that provides that ability to medical practitioners.

Stress Tests

With a stress test, the activity of your heart is measured with an electrocardiogram (ECG) and your blood pressure readings are taken while you are exercising or exercise is simulated.
