  • Radionuclide Angiogram, Resting and Exercise

    A resting and exercise radionuclide angiogram (RNA) is a type of nuclear medicine procedure. This means that a tiny amount of a radioactive substance, called a tracer, is used to help show the tissue under study. In this case, the heart's chambers in motion are studied. This test can tell the doctor how well the heart pumps with each heartbeat and how much blood is pumped with each heartbeat (called the ejection fraction) both during exercise and at rest.

  • Repair of an Ascending Aortic Aneurysm

    An bulging, weakened portion of the aorta is at risk for rupture and life-threatening bleeding. Surgery to repair it involves replacing the weak portion with an artificial graft.

  • Resting Myocardial Perfusion Scan

    Myocardial perfusion is an imaging test. It's also called a nuclear stress test. It is done to show how well blood flows through the heart muscle. It also shows how well the heart muscle is pumping. For example, after a heart attack, it may be done to find areas of damaged heart muscle. This test may be done during rest and while you exercise.

  • Resting Radionuclide Angiogram

    Resting RNA is a nuclear medicine procedure in which a tiny amount of radioactive tracer is injected and recorded as it moves through the heart. This test helps doctors evaluate how well the heart pumps and how much blood is pumped with each beat.

  • Right Heart Catheterization

    Right heart catheterization allows a surgeon to use a small, thin hollow tube called a catheter to examine your heart.

  • Right Heart Catheterization with Heart Tissue Biopsy

    In a right-heart catheterization with heart tissue biopsy, your doctor takes tissue samples directly from your heart muscle.

  • Robotic Cardiac Surgery

    Robotic cardiac surgery is a form of heart surgery done through very small incisions in the chest, tiny instruments, and a robotic device operated by a surgeon.

  • Robotic-Assisted Aortic Valve Repair

    Robotic-assisted aortic valve repair is a type of surgery. It uses robotic tools to fix a damaged aortic valve.

  • Robotic-Assisted Patent Foramen Ovale Repair

    A patent foramen ovale (PFO) is a small hole between the two upper chambers of the heart, the right and the left atrium. A robotic-assisted patent foramen repair is a type of surgery to fix this hole in the heart.
