Successfully Treating Thousands of Patients Every Year
Sharp uses many types of advanced nonsurgical diagnostic tests to determine whether a patient has heart, vascular and/or peripheral vascular disease, and to see how the disease is progressing.
Diagnostic tests and evaluations for heart disease include:
Vascular and Peripheral Vascular disease
Most tests for vascular and peripheral vascular disease do not require surgery. These tests and evaluations for vascular disease include:
Sometimes the results of a patient's nonsurgical test indicate that an additional test is needed. In that case, your physician may order an angiogram for further evaluation of the disease. During an angiogram, a colorless liquid dye is injected through small narrow tubes into selected vessels to visualize the location and extent of vascular disease.
