Cardiac catheterization is one of the most innovative yet routinely used imaging procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of common heart conditions. Your doctor may recommend this test to thoroughly diagnose the cause of your symptoms and develop the best treatment plan for you.
If your cardiologist recommends this procedure, we will insert a catheter into an artery in your groin or arm and thread it to your heart, where our doctors can identify artery issues, evaluate your heart valve and chamber functions, and check for heart defects. This procedure can also be used to treat coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure and pulmonary hypertension.
