Diagnostic Testing Done On-Site:

-EKG (Electrocardiogram) - The purpose on an EKG is to record the changing pattern of the hearts electrical activity to determine and diagnose various conditions that affect the heart. The hearts electrical signals are recorded by having electrodes placed on your heart.
-Nuclear Stress Test - A test that uses radioactive dye and an imaging machine to create pictures showing the blood flow to your heart. The test measures blood flow while you are at rest and are exerting yourself, showing areas with poor blood flow or damage in your heart.
