Tests & Procedures

Tests and Procedures: C

  • Carbon Monoxide (Blood)

    This test measures the level of carbon monoxide in your blood. You may need this test if you have smoke inhalation or symptoms of CO poisoning.

  • Carcinoembryonic Antigen

    This test measures a protein called carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) in your blood. This protein is present on some types of cancer cells.

  • Cardiac Biomarkers (Blood)

    This test measures the levels of cardiac biomarkers in your blood. Some of these markers increase after you've had a heart attack.

  • Cardiac Catheterization

    In cardiac catheterization (often called cardiac cath), a very small hollow tube, or catheter, is advanced from a blood vessel in the groin or arm through the aorta into the heart. Once it is in place, several diagnostic and treatment procedures can be done using catheterization.

  • Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy

    Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) is a type of treatment to help correct serious heart rhythm problems. It involves placing a device under your skin that is connected to the heart's ventricles. The device sends electrical signals to help them pump the way they should.

  • Cardiolipin Antibody

    This test helps your healthcare provider diagnose clotting disorders and autoimmune diseases. It measures the concentration of antibodies related to a fat molecule in your blood.

  • Carotid Angioplasty and Stenting

    Angioplasty and stenting is a procedure to improve the blood flow in an artery or vein. It involves threading a thin tube with a balloon at its tip through the artery to the blocked portion. The balloon is inflated opening up the artery. A stent is placed to prop it open. A stent is a mesh tube.

  • Carotid Artery Duplex Scan

    A carotid artery duplex scan is an imaging test to look at how blood flows through the carotid arteries in your neck.

  • Carotid Endarterectomy

    Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) is a surgical treatment for carotid artery disease. The carotid arteries are the main blood vessels that carry oxygen and blood to the brain. In carotid artery disease, these arteries become narrowed. This reduces blood flow to the brain and could cause a stroke.

  • Carpal Tunnel Release

    Carpal tunnel release is surgery to treat carpal tunnel syndrome. During this surgery, the surgeon cuts through a ligament in the wrist to make more room for nerves and tendons to pass through. This can improve the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome.
