Cardiovascular Imaging Services

The advanced collaborative Imaging team consisting of radiologists, cardiologists, cardiovascular anesthesiology, and cardiac/vascular surgeons who diagnose and manage several complex cardiovascular conditions requiring three dimensional echocardiography, perfusion imaging, cardiac MRI and CT, as well as dedicated operative imaging.

Imaging Services:

  • 3 Dimensional TEE Echocardiography for valvular heart disease, thoracic aortic diseases, pediatric and adult congenital heart disease, quantitiative evaluations of ejection fraction, and structural heart disease guidance during percutaneous interventions.
  • Perioperative echocardiography for critical pre-operative screening of patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery, rapid intra and post operative detection of cardiac complications, and critical care disease detection.
  • Focused Echocardiography for critical care echocardiography, emergency room decision making, and educational training for medical students and family physicians
  • Perfusion Echocardiography for improved coronary artery disease detection, better prediction of patient outcome, and reproducible assessments of left ventricular systolic function and regional wall motion.
  • Cardiovascular MRI for myocardial viability, pericardial disease detection and management, right and left ventricular cardiomyopathy assessment, myocarditis detection, adult and pediatric congenital heart disease detection and evaluation, stress perfusion imaging, and three dimensional assessments of the thoracic aorta and proximal coronary arteries without contrast requirement.
  • Cardiac CT for coronary artery disease detection in chest pain evaluations, aortic valve assessments for percutaneous aortic valve replacement, aorta and peripheral artery disease detection, and bypass graft assessments.
  • Radionuclide Imaging for myocardial perfusion imaging with protocols that minimize radiation exposure and optimize image quality
  • Interventional Echocardiography for mitra-clip procedures, adult and pediatric congenital heart disease interventions, transcutaneous aortic valve replacement, and left ventricular assist device and extracorporeal device evaluations
  • Pediatric Echocardiography for all pediatric cardiovascular indications
  • Adult Congenital Imaging for detection of shunts and defects and follow up evaluations after tetralogy of Fallot or transposition surgeries. Advanced imaging specialists with formal adult congenital heart disease training who perform all transthoracic and transesophageal evaluations in this area.

Training/Accredidations

  • Level III training in Cardiovascular MRI and Cardiac CT
  • Level III training in Echocardiography, Stress Echocardiography, and Transesophageal Echocardiography
  • Advanced imaging processing for left ventricular strain, three dimensional echocardiographic reconstructions
  • Two dedicated imaging specialists with formal adult congenital heart disease imaging training in echocardiography.
