Chest Pain Center

UM Health-West received the prestigious percutaneous cardiac intervention (PCI) designation from the American College of Cardiology. PCI, commonly known as angioplasty, is the process of clearing a blocked or narrowed coronary artery that could potentially lead to a heart attack.

Procedures & Interventions

  • Chest X-ray
  • Computed tomography (CT) of chest
  • Computed tomography angiogram (CTA) of chest
  • Laboratory testing hematology panels, chemistry panels including cardiac risk profile, Troponin I, CKMB, myoglobin, and BNP. Troponin is our cardiac biomarker of choice
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG / ECG)
  • Bedside echocardiogram
  • Stress echocardiogram exercise or medication
  • Myocardial perfusion scan exercise or medication
  • Cardiac viability scan
  • Graded Exercise Test (GXT) stress echo without images, unless patient is in pain
  • Multiple-gated acquisition scan (MUGA scan)
  • Heart catheterization left heart with or without right heart
  • Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI)
  • Noninvasive and invasive hemodynamic monitoring in all critical care areas
  • Continuous portable telemetry monitoring
