Tests & Screenings

Finding the source of your brain or neurological condition is one of the first steps in proper treatment. At ​Hi-Desert Medical Center, we offer a wide range of tests and screenings at our hospital. Among common tests and screenings:

Electroenphalogram

An echocardiogram uses sound waves to produce images of your heart. This commonly used test allows your doctor to see how your heart is beating and pumping blood.

Electrocardiogram

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a test in which electrodes on the chest are used to monitor and record the electrical activity of the heart.

Echocardiagrams

An echocardiogram uses sound waves to produce images of your heart. This commonly used test allows your doctor to see how your heart is beating and pumping blood.

24-hour holter monitors

24-hour Holter monitors are battery-operated ECG devices, which monitor and record the heart's electrical activity for 24 hours.

Arterial Vascular Study Lower Extremity

An arterial vascular study of the lower extremity typically involves inflating blood pressure cuffs on the legs while recording the pulse sounds through a Doppler transducer. < H4> Dobutamine stress testing with echocardiography imaging or nuclear imaging Dobutamine is a medication used to facilitate cardiac testing by chemically increasing the heart rate for those who are unable to walk on a treadmill. Nuclear imaging uses a radioactive substance that travels through the vessels to highlight areas of decreased or normal blood flow.

Trans- Esophageal Echocardiogram (TEE)

TEE uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to make detailed pictures of your heart and the arteries that lead to and from it. Unlike a standard echocardiogram, the echo transducer that produces the sound waves for TEE is attached to a thin tube that passes through your mouth and into your esophagus.
