Cardiology Q & A

What diagnostic cardiology services are available?

The Marion Physician Associates team provides comprehensive cardiology services on-site to better understand the cause of your heart-related symptoms quickly and accurately.

The team uses state-of-the-art diagnostic technology to thoroughly evaluate your heart, so necessary treatment can begin as soon as possible. Available diagnostic testing includes:

Carotid ultrasound

A carotid ultrasound is an imaging test that records images inside the carotid artery using sound wave technology to identify areas of plaque buildup, a risk factor for stroke.

Venous scan

A venous scan identifies vein blockages that can increase your risk for a heart attack or stroke.

When should I seek cardiology care?

If you experience new symptoms, like chest pain, difficulty breathing, or other potentially heart-related issues, don’t delay scheduling an appointment with the cardiology team at Marion Physician Associates.

You should also schedule a consultation for preventive cardiology care if you have an existing health condition, like diabetes or high blood pressure, that puts your heart health at risk. You may also need routine cardiac monitoring if you smoke or have a family history of heart disease.

As primary care providers, the Marion Physician Associates physicians can recommend certain heart evaluations based on your medical and family history and other health factors.

Stress test

Plain Treadmill / Adenosine/Dobutamine: Show how the heart reacts during exertion. Showing problems with the blood flow within the heart, rhythm, pressure, rate, probable scarring from a possible cardiac event.

PET STRESS The newest form of cardiac stress testing available, and most accurate for qualifying conditions allows better sharper images of exactly which areas of the heart have been damaged or scarred and the severity when other stresses have shown an abnormality at one point or another.


Procedure done by ultrasound to determine heart strength and proper flow or blood in and out of the heart. It is with this mechanism that we can see the valves, any defects, blockages, or build up unwanted deposits inside or around the heart muscle that would decrease the heart’s ability to function properly.

What cardiology treatments are offered?
