Shore Medical Center's CardioVascular Institute provides patients with both non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat heart and vascular diseases.
Low-risk diagnostic cardiac catherterization is provided on-site through an affiliation with the Penn Heart and Vascular Network.
A non-invasive heart and lung testing center for both inpatients and outpatients provides the following services:
- EEG (electroencephalogram)
- EKG (electrocardiogram)
- Holter monitoring
- Cardiac stress testing
- TEE (transesophageal echocardiography)
- Cardiac Rehab
- Vascular Ultrasound
Non-invasive Cardiac and Vascular Diagnostics
Other means of diagnosis and medical data collection include an array of non-invasive procedures such as stress tests, ultrasound, echocardiography, electrocardiography(EKG) testing. Advanced digital MRI and CT scan imaging technology enables early detection of aneurysm, blood clots, heart disease, stroke and other vascular problems.
