  • Cardiac Imaging

    MPI is a non-invasive imaging test that shows how well blood flows through your heart muscle. It can show areas of the heart muscle that aren’t getting enough blood flow. This test is often called a nuclear stress test. It can also show how well the heart muscle is pumping.

  • Catheterization

    Cardiac catheterization (also called cardiac cath) is a minimally invasive procedure that allows your doctor to “see” how well your heart is functioning and look for certain heart problems. Doctors usually do cardiac cath to understand how your heart is working or why you have symptoms such as chest pain.

  • Stress testing and Hemodynamics

    A stress test also called an “exercise test” or “treadmill test,” shows how your heart works when it is beating fast and hard. An exercise stress test may reveal problems with blood flow within your heart, which may not be detected in the resting state.
    A stress test usually involves walking on a treadmill or riding a stationary bike while your heart rhythm, blood pressure, and breathing are monitored. If you are unable to exercise (or in certain circumstances), you’ll receive a drug that mimics the effects of exercise.

  • Research & Education

    The HIC weekly clinical conference is a series of seminars in which our clinicians will dissect case studies, share journals and conduct research relevant to our practice. This environment facilitates a forum of interaction among our clinicians and encourages our clinical team to stay current on indicators, relevant tests and procedures available locally and abroad.
    The conferences take place every Tuesday in three formats.

  • Clinical Care


  • Emergency Room


  • Cardiac Surgery


  • Intensive Care Unit
