Our cardiology staff is expert in using transthoracic electrocardiogram to give your doctors the most accurate information about your heart.

Overview

Performed by our experienced technicians, a transthoracic electrocardiogram is a painless and safe way to take pictures of your heart and help your cardiologist diagnose your condition. You will lie very still on your back or side and electrical wires will be placed on your body. Ultrasound waves will then send images to a monitor for your doctor to evaluate. The test usually lasts about 30 minutes.
