Cardiology - Non-Invasive Adult Diagnostic Testing
With recent advances in technology, it is now possible to image the heart with such great detail and speed that a cardiac diagnosis can be made in seconds without an invasive procedure.
The exceptionally skilled and caring staff will guide the patient through every aspect of an imaging test, from preparing for the day of the test to what can be expected during and following the test. The department works closely with referring physicians to create a tailored plan of imaging that will deliver the most helpful results possible and provide these results to the physician on the same day in almost all instances.
Good Samaritan’s Department of Cardiology has a skilled staff of physicians, cardiac imaging technologists, and nurses. It offers the regions only 512-slice computed tomography (CT) scanning and three-dimensional and transesophageal echocardiography. All of the procedures are supervised and interpreted by expert board certified cardiologists.
