What Our South Reno, NV, Cardiologists Treat

Tests from the team at Northern Nevada Medical Group can diagnose your heart or vascular issue and then help you get the treatment you need. 

  • Cardiac Screenings (noninvasive)
    • Cardiovascular ultrasound exams can prevent heart disease and stroke by determining your heart health. A heart ultrasound gives doctors a picture of the overall function and integrity of your heart.
  • Carotid ultrasounds
    • This ultrasound gives physicians a view of the two large arteries in order to prevent risk of stroke. 
  • Echocardiogram
    • This test uses high-frequency sound waves to create pictures of the heart so doctors may visualize what it looks like inside. They do this to diagnose various heart conditions, assess the progression of heart valve disease over time and detect congenital heart defects before birth (fetal echocardiogram).
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG)
    • Electrocardiograms record the electrical signals to the heart that cause it to beat. 
  • Nuclear scan
    • A test in which the physician injects a harmless, radioactive substance into the heart to show contrast on images.
  • Echo-Guided Stress Test
    • A stress echocardiogram is another test to evaluate how well the heart is pumping blood to the rest of your body.
  • Tilt Table Testing
    • Tilt table tests are traditionally used to determine the cause of certain conditions such as unexplained fainting. In this test, the patient is monitored in both the horizontal and vertical positions. Changes in blood pressure, heart rate and other measures can help doctors come up with a more informed diagnosis.
  • Nuclear Stress Test
    • A nuclear stress test produces images of the heart during exercise and at rest. The test shows how well the blood flows into the heart.
