Cardiac Testing

Cardiac Testing for Heart and Vascular Issues

Heart Diagnosis and Early Detection of Heart Conditions

Cardiac testing is essential for early detection of cardiac and vascular problems before life-threatening events occur. The highly trained staff of the Lima Memorial Cardiac Treatment Center (CTC) include physicians, cardiac nurses, sonographers, technicians, and therapists.

The Cardiac Treatment Center uses a variety of cardiac test equipment and diagnostic procedures. Key tests include treadmill exercise stress tests using state-of-the-art SPECT imaging to assess cardiac-related symptoms, nuclear stress tests to detect inadequate blood supply, and specialized imaging technology to see and assess the condition of the heart muscle.

The CTC also provides a wide range of other heart testing, monitoring and cardiac health programs, including:

  • Tilt table testing
  • Electrocardiograms
  • Holter portable scanning systems
  • 30-day event recording
  • Accredited echocardiography laboratory (the first accredited echocardiography lab in the region)
  • Cardiac rehabilitation program
  • Pacemaker clinic
  • Implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) clinic
  • Congestive heart failure clinic
