Diagnostics & Detection

Most people who die of cardiovascular disease have no symptoms—or don't recognize the symptoms—until they have a fatal heart attack or stroke.

Detecting heart disease before it strikes is a complex process. It requires the best available technology and the most experienced medical experts.

Working with the area's finest cardiologists, we provide a full array of diagnostic procedures. In addition to offering ultrasound, echocardiography, nuclear medicine scanning, and stress testing, we are also:

  • One of the first networked digital cardiac catheterization laboratories in Northern Virginia.
  • The first in the area to offer SmartScore™—a non-invasive, painless tool that uses high-speed CAT scan imaging to detect calcium deposits in the arteries.

Our tools help us detect potential heart disease as early as possible—the best hope of preventing serious complications.
