A cardiac biopsy is a procedure that removes a very small sample of your heart muscle so that it can be evaluated in a lab. This procedure may be done to determine the cause of cardiac myopathy (a weakened heart muscle) or to check for rejection after a heart transplant.
A Cardiac Catheterization is used to take moving pictures of your heart and the surrounding blood vessels. It enables your doctors to see if there are any blockages in the arteries that supply your heart.
A cardiac catheterization may be performed when heart disease is suspected. It also may be done on an emergency basis when you have symptoms of a heart attack. If a blockage is found in your coronary arteries, a procedure called an angioplastycan be performed immediately to remove the blockage
When fatty deposits build up on the arteries in your neck, arms or legs, these blood vessels can begin to narrow or harden. This is called peripheral vascular disease. Depending on the location of the lesion, peripheral vascular disease can lead to strokes, transient ischemic attacks (TIA) or pain in the legs during walking (claudication). Carotid and vascular extremity testing can help to identify peripheral vascular disease and help guide your doctor in its treatment.
Electrophysiology is the branch of cardiology that deals with the electrical patterns in your heart. The electrodes can also provide tiny electrical impulses to your heart. The pulses can be used to safely “turn on” an arrhythmia and to identify the problem area. Your doctor can then test various medications or electrical impulses to see if they are able to “turn off” the arrhythmia, helping to determine the best treatment for you.
A cardiac MRI gives your doctor a detailed three-dimensional image of your heart. It can be used to help find the causes of heart conditions, such as plaque that is blocking blood flow or problems with your heart’s structure.
