Cardiovascular Imaging Section

Cleveland Clinic's Section of Cardiovascular Imaging uses the most advanced technology available to capture images of the heart. These various techniques allow physicians to make accurate diagnoses and determine the best treatment for each patient. They also offer better patient safety during treatments. These specialists are referred to as "imaging physicians" because they determine the most appropriate way to image or study the structure and function of the heart in order to diagnose many types of heart disease. They are also experts in the treatment and long-term management of many types of heart conditions.

Obtaining and interpreting images of the heart are critical to the successful management of any cardiac disorder. Our cardiovascular imaging specialists pioneered the use of stress echocardiography to evaluate heart valve disease, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, aortic aneurysm, patent foramen ovale, and diastolic dysfunction in patients with amyloidosis and constrictive pericarditis. We also use transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), nuclear imaging, cardiac MRI and coronary CTA.

Cardiovascular imaging physicians are also experts in the treatment and long-term management of many types of heart conditions including:
