Cardiac imaging services performed at AU Health

Imaging tests allow us to visualize the organs in the chest, such as the heart, lungs, and surrounding blood vessels to look for signs of cardiovascular disease. We perform:

    • Adult transthoracic echocardiography 
    • Transesophageal echocardiography 
    • Stress echocardiography
  • Stress testing: Tests that put physical demand on the heart muscle, these include exercise, echocardiograpy, nuclear, and pharmacological stress tests.
  • Coronary calcium screening: CT scans "slices" of your heart to check if calcium is present.
  • Coronary CT angiogram: Uses multiple x-rays to create a cross section of your heart.
