Non-surgical cardiology (outpatient only)

Austin Regional Clinic cardiology is a full-service non-invasive outpatient service. We offer complete consultative services and most non-invasive testing, including echocardiograms (EKGs), treadmill stress tests, stress echocardiograms, nuclear stress tests, and arrhythmia monitors.

ARC cardiologists are located in ARC clinics along with other primary care physicians and specialists for the convenience of patients and the furthering of communication and connected team care.

Your ARC primary care physician will refer you to a cardiologist if needed. Working as a team, our doctors focus on your needs, order the correct tests, and continue care. Our specialists are also well-connected with other cardiologists around town and can provide a trusted referral for additional treatment.

Find out if you’re at risk for developing heart disease

Stress tests help diagnose heart conditions such as coronary artery disease and arrhythmias. Stress testing may also be an element of ongoing monitoring if you’ve already been diagnosed with a heart condition. An EKG can be used for diagnosing congenital heart defects and heart disease as well as evaluating the health of heart chambers and valves.

Heart disease can mimic and aggravate other conditions; having same-office access to a cardiologist can speed diagnosis and close treatment gaps.

Services

Echocardiogram

Echocardiogram

An echocardiogram (echo) is a noninvasive procedure used to check the heart's function and structures.

Echocardiographic Interpretation

Echocardiographic Interpretation

ARC cardiologists help interpret echocardiographic results to determine the best treatment option for you.

Nuclear Stress Testing

Nuclear Stress Testing

Nuclear stress tests use a small amount of radioactive tracer and an imaging machine to create pictures showing blood flow.

Stress Echocardiogram

Stress Echocardiogram

Stress echocardiography uses ultrasound imaging to show how well your heart works to pump blood to your body. It can help detect a decrease in blood flow to the heart from narrowing in the coronary arteries.

Stress Testing (Cardiac Diagnostic Tests)

Stress Testing (Cardiac Diagnostic Tests)

A stress test shows how your heart works during physical activity, revealing problems with blood flow within your heart. We offer three basic types of stress testing: exercise stress tests, nuclear stress tests, and stress echocardiograms.

Treadmill Stress Testing

Treadmill Stress Testing

A treadmill test helps a doctor determine how well your heart handles work. As your body works harder during the test, it requires more oxygen, so the heart must pump more blood. The test can show if the blood supply is reduced in the arteries that supply the heart. It also helps doctors know the kind and level of exercise appropriate for a patient.
