Echocardiography

The Cardiology department offers a variety of interventional and diagnostic procedures for heart and vascular diseases. Our combination of patient-centered care and innovative treatment methods provide a safe and comfortable experience.

Procedures offered include:

  • Cardioversions, a procedure by which an abnormally fast heart rate (tachycardia) or other heart rhythm problems (arrhythmia) is converted to a normal rhythm using electricity or drugs
  • Holter monitoring used to observe the electrical activity of the cardiovascular system
  • Nuclear stress testing which is applied to better determine the risk of a heart attack or other cardiac event
  • Trans-thoracic echocardiograms
  • Trans-esophageal echocardiograms (TEE) stress echocardiography
  • Exercise treadmill stress tests.

Echocardiography is used to assess different areas of the heart and can detect heart disease or signs of serious conditions. An echocardiogram (also called an echo or cardiac ultrasound) is a painless test that uses soundwaves to take moving pictures of the heart.

The Echocardiography Department’s Diagnostic Cardiac Services have been accredited since 2006 and have been granted reaccreditation for a three-year term by its accreditation organization, the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) in Echocardiography, in the area of Adult Transthoracic. That seal of approval means patients can rely on consistent quality care and a dedication to continuous advancement of treatment.

The cardiology team offers echocardiograms, stress echocardiograms, exercise treadmill stress tests, 24- and 48-hour Holter monitor placement and analysis. Testing is available daily for St. Anthony Community Hospital patients, and via appointment Monday through Friday for outpatients.
