White Plains Hospital and its new Center for Advanced Medicine & Surgery (CAMS) feature the latest in non-invasive cardiology imaging and testing, including:
- Best-in-Class Coronary CTA – for high resolution images of coronary anatomy.
- CT & U/S 3D Fusion Imaging – combining different imaging modalities to better approximate actual heart structures and function.
- Bi-Plane Imaging – two rotating cameras showing spatial relations more accurately allow physicians to rapidly target problem areas.
- Holter Monitoring - a small, wearable device that records the heart's rhythm. It is used to detect or determine the risk of irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias).
- Nuclear Stress Test - measures blood flow while you are at rest and during activity, showing areas with poor blood flow or damage in your heart.
- PET/CT – provides quantity of blood delivery to the heart and detects supply/demand mismatch and microvascular disease without exposing patients to ionizing radiation.
- Transthoracic Echocardiogram (TTE) – determines how well your heart is functioning by using ultrasound to create images of the heart.
- Transesophageal Echocardiogram (TEE) – Often a follow-up to the TTE, this helps provide a more detailed visualization of the heart by taking pictures within your body.
Combining the anatomical accuracy of MRI with the metabolic information of positron emission tomography (PET) to provide superior image quality, shorter test times, and lower radiation exposure for patients. This new technology is able to detect and characterize ischemic and non-ischemic cardiac disease. White Plains Hospital is the only Hospital in the Hudson Valley and Fairfield County to have a PET/MRI.
