Abdominal Ultrasound

Abdominal ultrasound is a painless exam that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture images of internal views of the stomach and nearby blood vessels.

Type:
Imaging

Ankle-Brachial Index Test (ABI)

The Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI) test is done by measuring blood pressure at the ankle and in the arm while a person is at rest.

Type:
Imaging

Arterial Duplex Scan

Arterial duplex scan is a painless exam that uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to capture internal images of the major arteries in the arms, legs and neck.

Type:
Imaging

Cardiac Catheterization

Cardiac catheterization is a specialized X-ray exam used to look inside the arteries and chambers of the heart in adults, infants and children.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Diagnostic

Cardiac Event Monitoring/Holter Monitoring

30-Day cardiac event monitoring—also known as ambulatory electrocardiography (EKG)—uses a battery-operated, portable device similar to a holter monitor to measure and record the heart’s electrical activity.

Type:
Monitoring

Cardiac Magnetic Resonance Imaging (Cardiac MRI)

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic test that uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to provide pictures of the heart and blood vessels inside the body.

Type:
Imaging

Cardiac Nuclear Study

Cardiac nuclear study is a painless exam that uses radioactive tracers to capture images of the heart and vascular system.

Type:
Imaging

Carotid Ultrasound

Carotid ultrasound is a painless and harmless test to look for disease in the two main blood vessels that provide blood flow to the brain.

Type:
Imaging

Cerebral Angiography/Angiogram

Cerebral Angiography is a minimally invasive medical test that uses x-rays and an iodine-containing contrast material to produce pictures of blood vessels in the brain.

Type:
Minimally Invasive Diagnostic

Chest X-Ray

A chest X-ray is a black and white image of the chest area which shows the heart, lungs and bones of the rib cage.

Type:
Imaging
