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.

We also use transesophageal echocardiography (TEE), nuclear imaging, cardiac MRI and coronary CTA.
