Cardiac Testing and Screening
Virtual Visits Available
Our cardiac imaging program is open and offering virtual visits for some appointments.
Many diagnostic tests available today can tell doctors if you have heart disease or if it’s getting worse. Your cardiologist will decide which test is best for you based on your symptoms, your medical history and your history of heart disease.
At UMass Memorial Health Care, our patients have access to the latest cardiac tests and imaging technologies at locations across our health system. More advanced tests are available to all of our patients at our Heart and Vascular Center, located at our Medical Center in Worcester.
