Cardiac catheterization lab

Our Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory offers minimally invasive tests to check heart and artery function, as well as angioplasty to clear blocked arteries. The lab is staffed by an experienced team of registered nurses and certified radiology technologists, led by a board-certified cardiologist. Cardiac catheterization is a minimally invasive diagnostic test that provides clear, accurate cardiac images and measurements of the heart, coronary arteries and in some cases, the aorta. It is one of the most accurate diagnostic tests for coronary artery disease. The team performs tests on an outpatient basis Monday through Friday and is on call for emergencies 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
