Our cardiovascular doctors use the latest imaging technology to help us diagnose and treat heart conditions. We offer:
To check your heart structure and examine how the blood flows through your heart.
To get more detailed images of your heart structure and blood vessels by passing a thin tube down your throat and into your esophagus.
To diagnose blood clots and heart valve defects by examining blood flow.
To get information on heart function and blood flow to the different parts of the heart muscle.
To check heart structure and structure of the aorta and coronary arteries.
Our team works quickly and efficiently to diagnose and treat people who may be having a heart attack, so we can save more lives. Common symptoms of a heart attack involve pain or discomfort in the center or left side of the chest. This pain or discomfort can last for a few minutes or go away and come back. This can feel like uncomfortable pressure, fullness, or pain. At Allegheny Valley Hospital, our chest pain center can help diagnose the cause of the discomfort and get you the appropriate treatment.
