Outpatient Diagnostic Services

Flaget Memorial Hospital has a full range of sophisticated diagnostic equipment to evaluate your heart health. Our experienced diagnostic staff have years of experience. They understand what is foremost on our patients' minds and will do their best to make all of our patients as comfortable as possible during their tests.

Most of our tests can be performed during a single outpatient visit. A cardiologist and a nurse will be present with all of these types of tests.

Noninvasive tests performed at Flaget Memorial Hospital include:

  • Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) - This screening is painless and quick. It is used to identify peripheral vascular disease.
  • Echocardiogram (echo) - This test uses sound waves to produce a study of the motion of the heart's valves and chambers. The echo sound waves create an image on a monitor as an ultrasound transducer is passed over the heart.
  • Stress Test - Electrical activity of the heart is measured through electrodes that you wear while exercising. This test measures how well the heart performs during exercise.
  • Nuclear Stress Test - Similar to a traditional stress test, a nuclear stress test makes use of a radioactive dye that shows how well the blood flows into the heart muscle at rest and shortly after exercise.
  • Pharmacological Nuclear Test - For patients who cannot exercise, this stress test makes use of medication to simulate how well the blood flows into the heart muscle during after a period of exertion.
