The preventive cardiology diagnostic services include a number of tests. Diagnostic tests available include:

Exercise test

Also known as a stress test, during the exercise test your specialist assesses how your heart and blood pressure respond to exercise.

Cardiac and carotid ultrasound

The cardiac and carotid ultrasound is a noninvasive test that allows your specialist to see the structure of your heart and arteries and to look for abnormalities.

Rhythm monitoring

During rhythm monitoring, electrodes are attached to specific places on your chest and hooked up to a monitoring device that evaluates the pattern of your heartbeat and assesses for abnormalities such as an irregular heartbeat.

When you come in for a work-up, your specialist determines the type of cardiac diagnostic test best suited for you based on your symptoms and medical history.
