Cardiac Diagnostic Testing

Maury Regional Health offers a range of diagnostic testing tools to assist your physician in diagnosing and monitoring conditions related to heart health. Among these diagnostic services are:

  • Echocardiogram (Echo): This test uses ultrasound technology to evaluate the function of the heart and determine whether certain types of heart disease may be present. Maury Regional Medical Center is accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission in echocardiography in the areas of adult stress and adult transthoracic.
  • Electrocardiogram: Sometimes called an EKG or ECG, this test monitors heart rhythm, blood flow and can be used to determine whether a heart attack has occurred.
  • Holter/event monitor: This small monitor is used to measure an individual's heartbeat over a period of time, often for 24 hours and up to 30 days. Information stored on the monitor can be used to evaluate issues such as an irregular heartbeat.
  • Exercise stress test: This test determines how your heart responds to increased activity such as walking on a treadmill or the use of medication that could simulate stress on the heart.

Testing is performed with a physician's order at Maury Regional Medical Center, Marshall Medical Center and Wayne Medical Center
