Cardiac procedures and tests help your doctor evaluate and treat you more effectively

A cardiac evaluation is most commonly initiated in a doctor’s office, a clinic or an emergency room. If there is suspicion of heart disease, the doctor orders tests and procedures to exclude or make adiagnosis of specific heart disease.

When a procedure is performed inside a blood vessel or artery, it is an endovascular procedure. Cardiac tests and procedures at Tanner can include endovascular procedures such as catheterizations, balloon angioplasties or coronary stenting, where patients are often suddenly admitted to the hospital due to a heart attack, as well as non-endovascular procedures performed on an outpatient basis such as stress testing and echocardiography.

When you know what to expect, you’ll feel more assured, and your visit to Tanner will go more smoothly.
