The heart and vascular center at Memorial Hospital specializes in evaluating and treating heart and vascular conditions including:
• irregular heart beats caused by an electrical problem
• partially blocked main or peripheral arteries impairing the ability to carry blood throughout the body
• heart failure as a result of cardiovascular disease, heart attack, or uncontrolled blood pressure over time
One of our routine diagnostic processes for heart patients includes computed tomography angiography (CTA).Our 64-slice CT scanner allows the doctor to see an amazing level of detail about what’s going on inside your body … all in high-resolution 3D imagery.
But when we do a CTA, we're not only looking at your heart. We're looking at your whole body.
For instance, when a CTA is performed, it may appear that the heart function is normal, but it's possible for the doctor to discover an entirely different health issue while reading the results.
That's just one example of the advanced diagnostics technology we have at the heart and vascular center at Memorial Hospital to help us discover what might be going wrong inside of you.
After you receive the results of your in-depth diagnostic test, you can discuss the results with a doctor or a team of doctors who specialize in cardiovascular care. You will be able to ask questions and get answers immediately. After diagnosis, your doctor will discuss the appropriate treatments and procedures, such as medication, therapy, surgery, and more, for your medical condition.
And you'll be glad to know that no other hospital in southern Colorado performs more cardiovascular surgeries each year than Memorial. That means your care is in the hands of the most practiced surgeons and specialists in southern Colorado.
