Diagnostic Testing

Saint Joseph Martin offers a full range of diagnostic tests to evaluate your heart and vascular health, and to determine the most appropriate course of treatment for you. We provide comprehensive diagnostic services in a comfortable and convenient community setting.

Saint Joseph Martin is dedicated to the care and comfort of its patients. All of our diagnostic tests are performed in a safe environment and may be performed during a single outpatient visit.

Noninvasive heart and vascular tests performed at Saint Joseph Martin include:

  • Carotid Duplex - An ultrasound test that measures blood flow in the carotid arteries. The carotid arteries are located in the neck and supply blood to the brain.
  • 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.
  • Holter Monitor - A machine worn for 1-2 days that shows how the heart responds to the normal activities of daily living.

  • Nuclear Pharmaceutical Stress Test - Similar to a traditional stress test, this test makes use of an injected medication that shows how well the blood flows into the heart muscle at rest and shortly after exercise.
  • Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TEE) - A type of echocardiogram test that uses sound waves to create moving pictures of the heart.
