Our cardiac imaging exams range from 15 seconds (Cardiac CT Scan) to 30-minutes (TEE Cardioversion), to one-hour (PET Scan).
A TEE (Transesophageal Echocardiography) is a non-surgical outpatient procedure, where a small, flexible tube containing a probe is inserted into the esophagus to provide live images of the heart.
For decades, doctors have used cardiac PET scans to safely and accurately identify the presence or absence of coronary artery disease in people who have had symptoms and/or risk factors. Exam results can also indicate if any follow-up treatment is needed.
During the procedure, physicians, nurses and specialized staff observe your heart’s structure and function. Special attention is placed on the upper and lower chambers of the heart, the heart valves, and blood flow. After a stroke, this procedure is used to look for blood clots in the chambers of your heart as well as examination of of the heart after recent surgery.
