Many of our well-trained clinical staff members hold special certifications indicating ongoing training in complex procedures.
The following non-invasive procedures are available at both our Walnut Creek and Concord campuses:
Uses an electrocardiographic (EKG) machine to evaluate the electrical activity generated by the heart at rest and with activity.
Uses ultrasound, or high-frequency sound waves, to create graphic images of the heart's structures, pumping action, and direction of blood flow. Stress echocardiography and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) are also available.
A method of producing images by detecting radiation from different parts of the body after the administration of a radioactive tracer material.
Uses 64-slice computed tomography (CT) scan to reveal the internal structures of the heart and the coronary arteries (Concord campus only).
