Tilt Table testing
Transesophageal echocardiogram (TEE)For this test, a small tube which has camera on top is passed down the esophagus instead of being moved over the outside of the chest wall. TEE shows clearer pictures of your heart, because the probe is located closer to the heart and because the lungs and bones of the chest wall do not block the sound waves produced by the probe. 
Percutaneous coronary intervention (angioplasty/stenting)Angioplasty is also called percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA), gets blood flowing back to the heart. It opens a coronary artery that was narrowed or blocked during a heart attack. 


An echocardiogram (also called an echo) is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart. These echoes are turned into moving pictures of your heart that can be seen on a video screen.

An electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) is a test that checks for problems with the electrical activity of your heart. An EKG translates the heart’s electrical activities into line tracings on paper. The spikes and dips in the line tracings are called waves.

Cardiac catheterization and coronary angiographyCardiac Catheterization is a procedure that helps doctors to see if you have any block arteries. Doctors insert a thin, tube called a catheter into an artery in your arm or leg which leads to your heart. The catheter is used to deliver dye that will show up on an X-ray (contrast dye) to visualize your heart blood vessels.



Venous duplex ultrasoundThis type of ultrasound shows if there is a blockage in a leg vein. Such blockages are usually caused by blood clots, which can be dangerous and even lifethreatening if they break loose and travel through the blood to the lungs. If you have pain or swelling in one leg, your doctor may order an ultrasound to determine whether your symptoms are caused by a blockage. Also, this type of ultrasound shows if there is venous insufficiency which may cause varicose vein and it may explain the reason for your leg pain.
Carotid duplex ultrasoundCarotid duplex is an ultrasound test that shows how well blood is flowing through the carotid arteries. The carotid arteries are located in the neck. They supply blood to the brain.
Vascular  Arterial duplex ultrasound
People who have leg pain when exercising may need an evaluation to make sure they have normal blood flow through their leg arteries. Normally blood pressure is similar whether it is measured in the legs or in the arms. If blood pressure is lower in the legs, it usually means that cholesterol buildup inside the leg arteries is interfering with circulation. By taking accurate blood pressure measurements at different locations along your legs, your doctors can determine if you have any arterial narrowing and, if so, where. In order to get accurate blood pressure measurements, your doctor uses a technique called Doppler ultrasound. Doppler ultrasound is a painless way to detect blood flowing through a small artery.
Pacemaker/DefibrillatorsIn-office "check" and remote monitoring, device adjustments, pre-operative and post-operative evaluation
Nuclear StudiesA cardiac (heart) nuclear study is a test that uses a small dose of radioactive solution to track blood flow to the heart muscle, and to evaluate heart function. Stress testing provides your doctor with information about how your heart works during physical stress.
Holter monitor

A Holter monitor is a battery-operated, portable device that measures and tape-records your heart’s electrical activity (ECG) continuously for 24 to 48 hours or longer depending on the monitor used. Electrodes (small conducting patches) are placed on your chest and attached to a small recording monitor that you can carry in a pocket or in a small pouch worn around your neck. The recording is then analyzed, a report of the heart’s activity is tabulated and irregular heart activity is correlated with a diary that you keep of your activity at the time. It is very important that you accurately record your symptoms and activities so that the doctor can correlate them with your Holter monitor findings.
