Maintaining good heart health is a big part of your overall well-being, so our heart specialists are committed to keeping your heart as healthy as possible, offering a wide variety of cardiopulmonary diagnostic services to effectively diagnose and treat symptoms, including:

  • Bronchoscopy: a procedure that allows doctors to view the inside of the lungs using a thin tube attached to a small camera
  • Diffusion study: a study that helps evaluate lung function by measuring how well the air sacs in the lungs are delivering oxygen to the blood
  • Echocardiogram: a diagnostic procedure that uses sound to produce images of the heart
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG): a diagnostic procedure that measures electrical activity in the heart
  • Lung volume measurement: a diagnostic test that measures the maximum amount of gas exhaled during breathing
  • Spirometry: a diagnostic test that measures how quickly, and in what amounts, you inhale and exhale air
  • Stress testing: a diagnostic tool doctors can use to measure heart performance during increased physical activity, such as being on a treadmill
