Cardiac Testing

Coronary Angiography or Cardiac Angiogram

An angiogram is a special type of X-Ray using dye to show if there is narrowing of the coronary arteries. The coronary arteries supply the heart with blood. Narrowing in these arteries can cause chest pain (angina) and a blockage can cause a heart attack. This test can also detect problems with the heart valves, or the pumping action of the heart.

Exercise Stress Testing

Exercise Stress Testing is an ECG (Electrocardiography) performed and monitored during exercise. This allows us to see how your heart responds to the demands of physical activity.


Echocardiography is an ultrasound test of the heart. A pear-shaped device called a transducer is held against the chest and produces and receives high frequency sound waves (ultrasound) that bounce off structures in the chest cavity to form images.

Event Loop Recorder

An Event Loop Recorder is performed to:

  1. Identify abnormal beats and heart rhythms e.g. palpitations
  2. Evaluate your symptoms to see if it is related to your heart

Ambulatory ECG Monitoring (Holter Monitoring)

Electrocardiography (ECG) is a test performed to record the electrical activity of the heart. A holter monitor records the ECG over a 24-hour period. The monitor will record every heart whilst you are wearing it. During this period, any abnormal beats/rhythms will be detected.

12 Lead ECG (Electrocardiogram)

A 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) is a medical test that is recorded using leads, or nodes, attached to the body. Electrocardiograms, sometimes referred to as ECGs, capture the electrical activity of the heart and transfer it to graphed paper.

Electrophysiology Study and Catheter Ablation

Highly trained specialists perform EP studies in a specially designed EP lab outfitted with advanced technology and equipment.

Stress Echocardiogram

A stress echocardiogram is a diagnostic test that uses sound waves (ultrasound imaging) to evaluate the functioning of your heart during activity. The heart pumps blood to the entire body and requires blood and oxygen itself to function adequately, which it receives through the coronary arteries. A stress echocardiogram is indicated to detect narrowing of these arteries and decreased blood flow to the heart muscle.
