Nonâ€“Invasive Cardiac Imaging Sciences
Riverside’sÂ Non-Invasive Cardiovascular Imaging Sciences (NICIS)Â provides a wide array of tools to quantitatively address many of the known cardio-diseases. Â We offer among others, Echocardiography for both Pedia and Adult; 2D echo with color Doppler; fetal echo; and Trans-Esophageal Echocardiography (TEE).
Our NICIS also offers cardiac stress testing – a cardioÂ test that measures aÂ heart’s ability to respond to externalÂ stressÂ in a controlled clinical environment. Â The stress response is induced by exercise or by drug stimulation by means of the Treadmill Exercise Test and Treadmill/Dobutamine Stress Echo. Â We also have 12/ 15/ 18 Lead Electrocardiography or (ECG) that records the electrical activity of the heart over a period of time using electrodes placed on the skin.
WeÂ also have the Bio-Z Testing, a recommended medical technology that provides physicians a safe, non-invasive access to information about their patientâ€™s heartâ€™s ability to deliver blood to the body; how hard the heart is pumping; and how much blood is in the chest.
For Vascular studies, there are tests that check the blood flow in the patientâ€™s arteries and veins. These tests are non-invasive and therefore do not use any needles. Â Under these are the Abdominal Aorta, Arterial, Penile Duplex, Bypass Graft, Dialysis Access Graft, Portla Renal, Single Vessel and Venous Duplex.
OurÂ NICIS also offers the OB-GYNE Ultrasound for Follicle Scanning, Pelvic Ultrasound, Pregnancy Evaluation and 3D/4D Ultrasound.
