Some tests use a combination of testing methods or are specialized such as the Cardiovascular Autonomic Reflex Test.
Electrocardiograph tests use the electrocardiogram to evaluate the electrical activity generated by the heart at rest and with activity.
Invasive testing involves inserting catheters into the blood vessels of the heart to get a closer look at the coronary arteries, or to stimulate and test the electrical system of the heart.
Laboratory tests include a number of blood tests used to diagnose and monitor treatment for heart disease.
Nuclear imaging is a method of producing images by detecting radiation from different parts of the body after the administration of a radioactive tracer material.
A physical examination is the first step in diagnosing and treating cardiovascular disease, helping the doctor determine what type of test is necessary to diagnose your condition.
Radiographic tests use x-ray machines or very high-tech machines (CT, MRI) to create pictures of the internal structures of the chest.
