Cardiology Procedures

Non-Invasive Cardiac Diagnostic Testing

Frye Heart Center's cardiologists often use diagnostic procedures to determine the cardiac condition of our patients. These diagnostic tests may include:

  • Treadmill stress testing
  • Holter monitoring/event monitoring
  • Electrocardiography
  • Echocardiography
  • Stress echo
  • Nuclear cardiology
  • Peripheral vascular testing
  • Cardiac CT 
  • Cardiac MRI 

Cardiac Services

Following necessary diagnostic testing, our physicians will then collaborate with the patient's referring physician to determine the best possible course of treatment. Often we can help our patients develop a plan to improve diet and exercise that may prevent potential cardiac problems in the future. The cardiac treatments performed may include:
