Heart & Vascular Diagnostics

Best Diagnostics. Best Heart Health.

Touro provides a full spectrum of heart and vascular diagnostics and technology. It’s the only way to get an accurate picture of your heart health and to devise the best course of action for you.

Advanced, Comfortable MRI

Imagine, a soothing 4K nature theme video, music, relaxing lighting – even a favorite movie – while undergoing an MRI built with today’s challenges in mind. Our newest tool is the GE SIGNA Artist Magnetic Resonance Imaging with cardiac capability and patient comfort in mind. The SIGNA Artist is the most versatile, adaptable, and powerful MRI technology available. With it, the medical imaging team at Touro is able to produce sharper scans, faster. That means quicker diagnosis, swifter patient flow, enhanced comfort, and reduced wait times overall. As part of the technology, the “caring suite” includes a tv, sound system and lighting package.


Our patients like these tests because they’re painless—we like them for their accuracy. This simple test allows us to gather information about your heart, including any damage that has occurred.

Cardiac catheterization

We insert a thin, hollow, and flexible tube into the artery of the groin or arm. Then we gently guide the tube to your heart to obtain an X-ray of the heart and blood vessels.

Electrophysiological studies

One of our physicians will provoke irregular heartbeats to collect important data that enables us to pinpoint the location causing abnormal electrical impulses.

Holter monitor

A Holter monitor continuously monitors your EKG for 24 hours. You will wear the monitor throughout the day, giving our physicians a complete picture of your cardiac health.

Cardiac stress testing

Stress testing helps us get an extremely accurate picture of your heart health, so we can treat any condition before it worsens.

Cerebral arteriogram

This procedure images your brain’s blood vessels. We insert a catheter into the body and inject a contrast dye, which allows us to X-ray the blood vessels.

Cardiac CT scan

This procedure takes X-rays and detailed photos of your heart and all its blood vessels. Computerized 3D models allow us to reach an accurate diagnosis.

Cardiac MRI

Our cardiologists use MRIs to gain a comprehensive view of the extent of damage to your heart and its essential components.

Coronary calcium score

Calcium is an element sometimes found in the heart. Essentially, a zero count of calcium indicates a minimal chance of heart attack in the future.


An echocardiogram is a test using ultrasound to examine your heart’s structure and functioning to determine the extent of abnormalities and disease.

Nuclear cardiology

Nuclear cardiology studies use non-invasive methods to assess blood flow to and from the heart. These procedures can also help our doctors and technicians visualize the size and location of a heart attack, if they believe one has occurred.

Vascular ultrasound

This is another non-invasive test in which we can examine the blood flow in your veins and arteries. Like many ultrasound tests, this is a completely painless diagnostic procedure.

Peripheral angiography

This comprehensive procedure studies all of the peripheral—think hands, arms, feet, and legs—circulation in your body. Our doctors usually perform this test if they suspect you might have one or more significant blockages in your arteries. Using a contrast dye and a special X-ray called a fluoroscope, our specialists can take real-time images of your blood vessels, helping us to pinpoint your problem and treat it.


Transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) is an echocardiogram that is done by passing a probe (transducer) over your chest. This test can show problems with heart structure or function. This includes showing patterns of blood flow, how well the heart pumps, or if the heart is enlarged.

Tilt table

Tilt table testing can help your healthcare provider identify the cause of fainting by checking how changes in body position affect your blood pressure and heart rate. You are placed on a table lying flat, then the table is tilted upward (head up) to different angles. The test tries to recreate fainting symptoms while your blood pressure, heart rhythm, and heart rate are monitored. The test can be done in a hospital or at your provider's office.
