Getting the right diagnosis is important to getting the right treatment. Denver Health offers a full array of screening and diagnostic services and has the technology and expertise to determine the cause of the problem you are experiencing. 

Our screening and diagnostic services include the following:

Non-invasive Testing

  • Echocardiogram: An Echocardiogram (echo) is a graphic outline of the heart’s movement. During an echo, ultrasound (high-frequency sound waves) from a hand-held transducer are placed on your chest to capture pictures of the heart’s valves and chambers and help the sonographer evaluate the pumping action of the heart. Echos are often combined with Doppler ultrasound and color Doppler to evaluate blood flow across the heart’s valves. 
  • Transesophageal Echocardiography: For certain conditions the heart is best visualized through the esophagus. This procedure is safe and can give our cardiologists additional information to plan your treatment. 
  • Exercise Stress Test: The most common diagnostic procedure to evaluate a patient for coronary artery disease. Performed on a treadmill, this test determines the ability of your heart's arteries to provide enough blood to the heart muscle while the heart is under an increased workload.
  • Nuclear Stress Test Imaging: Another diagnostic test to evaluate coronary artery disease.  Used in conjunction either with exercise stress testing or with medication stress testing, this technology provides imaging to clearly define areas of the heart that are not getting enough blood.
  • Medication Stress Test ImagingMedication stress testing safely stresses the heart for a short period of time for patients who cannot walk on the treadmill.
  • Holter: This test continuously monitors your heart for fast, very slow or irregular heart rhythms. The patient wears the Holter device, about the size of a deck of cards, during normal activities over a 24-48 hour period. Cardiac experts then review the data to detect any abnormal heart rhythms.
  • Event Monitors:  Similar to a Holter monitor, an event monitor evaluates patients for abnormal heart rhythms but only when patients feel symptoms such as heart palpitations or a fast heart rate.

Invasive Testing

  • Angiography: an injection of dye into the arteries to check for adequate blood flow and blockages This test is provided in our cardiac cath lab
