The first step toward a healthy heart is to determine the type and extent of cardiovascular disease. Shands Starke provides technologically advanced heart care, offering state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and expertise. Our experienced clinical cardiologists use a wide range of sophisticated cardiac procedures to diagnose heart disease: Electrophysiology studies, electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) and transesophogeal echocardiogram (TEE) measure the heart's electrical activity and identify muscle damage that can cause heart disease. Portable devices such as a Holter monitor or event recorder measure a patient’s heart activity throughout the day, over an extended period of time. Nuclear medicine scans reveal the structure and blood flow within the heart. Non-invasive imaging technologies including magnetic resonance angiography (MRA), computed tomography angiography (CTA), X-ray and echocardiograms provide images of the heart muscle, valves, veins and arteries.
