Heart screening and imaging

Regular heart screening is important for maintaining your heart health. Heart screening can include blood tests to examine cholesterol and glucose levels, as well as imaging exams to both screen for heart complications and monitor current conditions.

Heart tests in Wichita, Kansas

The heart care specialists at Wesley Medical Center and Wesley Woodlawn Hospital & ER perform thousands of diagnostic heart tests each year.

With these advanced screening tests, your doctor can identify risks and diagnose problems in their early stages.

The importance of heart imaging tests

At Wesley Healthcare, we believe that education and screenings are essential to preventing heart disease. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), heart disease remains the leading cause of death in the U.S., making it extremely important to receive screenings for heart disease if you are at risk.

Genetics and lifestyle choices can both play roles in your risk for heart disease. If you have high blood pressure, are overweight or have a family history of heart disease, talk to your doctor about getting your cardiac calcium score.

Heart imaging services

Wesley offers a variety of heart screening and imaging services, including:

  • Computed tomography (CT) scan
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG)
  • Echocardiogram (ECHO)
  • Stress test
  • Holter monitoring
  • Nuclear stress test
  • Cardiac stress test
  • Chest X-ray
  • Ultrasound

Coronary calcium scan

A coronary calcium scan is a non-invasive way to obtain information about the presence, location and extent of calcified plaque in the coronary arteries—the vessels that supply blood to the heart muscle.

Calcified plaque results when fat and other substances build-up under the inner layer of the artery. This material can calcify, which signals the presence of atherosclerosis, a disease of the vessel wall (also called coronary artery disease or CAD). People with this disease have an increased risk of heart attacks.

Cardiac CT scan

Wesley uses high-definition, low-dose CT technology that creates detailed cardiac images, which allows physicians to detect heart disease using non-invasive procedures. Enhanced pictures of the coronary arteries and the opportunity to look at each section of the heart can help identify your risk for a heart attack.

Cardiac catheterization

We perform diagnostic and interventional heart procedures in our state-of-the-art cardiac catheterization lab, also called the cath lab.

Cardiac catheterization is a minimally invasive procedure in which a small catheter is inserted into an artery, usually in the wrist or groin, and guided through your blood vessels to your heart. This allows the doctor to view inside of your blood vessels to diagnose cardiovascular diseases, heart attack and other conditions. If a heart attack is detected, intervention is provided immediately.

Electrophysiology studies

Electrophysiology studies evaluate your heart’s electrical system to identify abnormal heart rhythms, called heart arrhythmias. This study gives your doctor information about where your abnormal heart rhythm originates and what causes it.
