Cardiac and Vascular Testing Services

Shore Medical Center's Cardiovascular services provides patients with both non-invasive and minimally invasive procedures to diagnose and treat heart and vascular diseases.

Low-risk diagnostic cardiac catherterization is provided on-site through an affiliation with the Penn Heart and Vascular Network.

Non-Invasive Cardiovascular Services

A non-invasive heart and lung testing center for both inpatients and outpatients provides the following services:

  • Echocardiogram
  • EKG (electrocardiogram)
  • Holter monitoring
  • Cardiac stress testing
  • TEE (transesophageal echocardiography)
  • Cardiac Rehab
  • Vascular Ultrasound

Invasive Cardiovascular Services

Interventional Radiology

  • Balloon angioplasty and stenting of peripheral vessels
  • Blood clot filters
  • Central venous access
  • Diagnostic arteriography
  • Foreign body extraction
  • Needle biopsies
  • Thrombolysis
  • Uterine fibroid embolization
  • Percutaneous feeding tube placement
  • Renal and peripheral vascular interventions
  • Biliary, gastrointestinal and genitourinary interventions

Non-invasive Cardiac and Vascular Diagnostics

Other means of diagnosis and medical data collection include an array of non-invasive procedures such as stress tests, ultrasound, echocardiography, electrocardiography(EKG) testing. Advanced digital MRI and CT scan imaging technology enables early detection of aneurysm, blood clots, heart disease, stroke and other vascular problems.
