Several tests diagnose possible heart disease. The choice of which tests to perform depends on several things. These include a patient's risk factors, history of heart problems, current symptoms and the doctor's interpretation of these factors.

People being evaluated for possible heart disease are usually given simple tests first. Then more complicated ones may be used, if needed. Specific tests depend on the patient's particular problem and the physician's assessment.

Some of these tests are noninvasive. That means they don't involve inserting instruments or fluids into the body.

These include: 

Stress Tests 
Diagnostic Cardiology 
Vascular Imaging 
If your physician has ordered any of these tests, please call 540-536-6803 to schedule an appointment at Winchester Medical Center.
