  4. 4. PATIENT S ERVICES Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, killing more than 500,000 American men and women every year. At Drexel University College of Medicine, we know that proper treatment begins with proper diagnosis. That’s why we offer a wide range of imaging and non-invasive testing tools, including: ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY Echocardiography is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure that uses harmless sound waves to create a moving picture of the heart.The picture is significantly more detailed than an x-ray image and allows doctors to see the heart beating and to visualize the structures of the heart. NUCLEAR CARDIOLOGY Nuclear Cardiology plays a pivotal role in diagnosing heart disease, assessing the extent of the disease, and predicting the outcomes. Nuclear Cardiology studies use non-invasive techniques to assess myocardial blood flow, evaluate the pumping function of the heart, and visualize the size and location of a heart attack. ELECTROPHYSIOLOGY When there is a problem with the heart’s electrical system, it is unable to pump blood effectively through the body. Drexel University College of Medicine has Cardiologists who specialize in electrophysiology, the study of this system of the L I N K I N G T E C H N O
  5. 5. PATIENT S ERVICES heart. Our physicians in this division are able to diagnose and treat abnormalities including arrhythmias, atrial fibrillation, and other cardiac problems.We are experts in pacemaker and defibrillator evaluation, implantation, and continuing care. CARDIAC CATHETERIZATION Cardiac catheterization is a procedure used to check blood flow in the heart and coronary arteries, as well as blood pressure within your heart. It enables our physicians to detect congenital heart defects or coronary artery disease. If a blockage is found, our physicians can perform a number of procedures in the catheterization lab including angioplasty, stenting, and atherectomy. L O G Y T O A T R A D I
  6. 6. PATIENT S ERVICES HEART FAILURE/TRANSPLANT Heart failure, which occurs when a person’s heart is unable to pump blood, can worsen over time and become serious, or even fatal. Our physicians, nurses and healthcare professionals know that the right treatment, communication, and teamwork can prevent or slow the progression of the disease.We can design a plan to help manage your condition and help you choose what treatment is best for you. NURSE PRACTITIONERS Nurse practitioners are important members of the Drexel University College of Medicine Cardiology team. Nurse practitioners explain your health problems, medications, and other information so you, the patient, can understand how best to take care of yourself. All nurse practitioners work very closely with your attending physician to provide you with the best possible care. 215-965-6000 215-561-HEART T I O N O F C A R I N G™
