What is cardiology?
First things first, Cardiology is a branch of medicine that deals with the study, diagnosis, and care of the cardiovascular system. Cardio relates to your heart, and vascular is the body’s network of vessels, veins and arteries which carry blood around your body. Your dedicated cardiologist will build up a picture of your overall heart health.
There are four main types of cardiology: invasive, non-invasive, interventional and preventative. Your personal cardiologists here at Premier Cardiology & Vascular Associates may use one or several techniques to diagnose and correctly treat your heart condition.
As the name suggests, non-invasive cardiology identifies heart problems without using any needles, fluids, or other instruments inserted into the body. Using non-invasive procedures, your cardiac specialist can identify potential risks or existing conditions and recommend medication, treatment or lifestyle changes to help improve your heart health.
Non-invasive testing and procedures offered by Premier Cardiology & Vascular Associates include:
The study and testing of the electrical currents which generate heartbeats
CT scans generate images used in determining whether you have heart disease or atherosclerosis, otherwise known as plaque build-up on your arteries.
Invasive cardiology uses safe open, or minimally invasive procedures to locate and treat structural or electrical abnormalities within the cardiac system.
Invasive testing and treatments offered by Premier Cardiology & Vascular Associates include:
Interventional cardiology is a non-surgical treatment option that uses a catheter – a small, flexible tube. We use this treatment to repair damaged or weakened vessels, narrowed arteries, or other affected parts of the heart structure.
Common conditions treated by interventional cardiology by Premier Cardiology & Vascular Associates include:
Your heart can also be negatively impacted by clogged or hardened veins and arteries throughout your body.
