Cardiac Catheterization

A procedure in which a long, flexible tube is inserted into the blood vessels and guided into the heart, to visualize the structures inside, collect samples, make incisions and implant devices.


An echocardiogram, echo or heart ultrasound, is a non-invasive, pain-free procedure using sound waves reflected off the surfaces of the heart to providing moving images of your child's heart.


An electrocardiogram is one of the simplest procedures used to evaluate the heart, taking only five to 10 minutes. The tracings allow the physician to see abnormal heartbeats that may indicate a heart problem.

Exercise Laboratory & Stress Test

An exercise stress test measures the heart's response to stress or exercise. An electrocardiogram (ECG) is monitored while children exercise on a treadmill or stationary bike.

Fetal Echocardiogram

A fetal echocardiogram (or “echo”) is a specialized ultrasound (“sono”) examination of the unborn baby’s heart.

Holter & Event Monitoring

A Holter monitor, a small device that records your child's heartbeats for 24 hours or longer, allows the physician to see abnormal beats or rhythms that may be causing your child's symptoms.
