Cardiology Procedures

Non-Invasive Cardiac Diagnostic Testing

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

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

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 heart care treatments performed may include:
