Heart and Vascular Tests and Procedures

UPMC Content 2

Diagnostic tests and procedures help doctors at the UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute evaluate cardiovascular diseases and plan treatment.

Some of the heart tests and procedures we perform include:

  • Heart catheterization — state-of-the-art imaging technology to diagnose and treat common, complex, and even life-threatening heart and vascular conditions.
  • Transradial cardiac catheterization — a more comfortable alternative to traditional heart catheterization.
  • Cardiac genetic testing — cutting-edge diagnostic testing and treatments for all forms of hereditary cardiovascular diseases.
  • Cardiac imaging — advanced echocardiography, cardiac MRI, and nuclear imaging technology to diagnose heart disease.
  • Electrophysiology — expert risk identification and a variety of therapies to diagnose and treat arrhythmias and other heart rhythm disorders.
  • Nuclear stress testing — one of the most common tests doctors use to diagnose and treat many cardiovascular conditions.

Some of the vascular tests and procedures include:

  • Dialysis Access — treatment for people with end-stage kidney disease to filter waste out of their blood
  • Screening for Vascular Diseases — the UPMC Heart and Vascular Institute offers screenings and tests for a variety of vascular diseases, which could save your life
  • Venous Stents — procedure that allows veins to stay open and improve blood flow
