Cardiovascular Imaging Center
Heart experts at the University of Chicago Heart and Vascular Imaging Center diagnose heart and blood vessel problems using the most advanced noninvasive and minimally invasive approaches. Over the years, our specialists have pioneered many of the cardiac and vascular imaging techniques used around the world.
Patients who come to the Heart and Vascular Imaging Center benefit from our unique collaboration of experts. Our Heart and Vascular Imaging Center is jointly staffed by both cardiologists and radiologists with extensive imaging expertise--making it one of the first in the country to adopt this integrated approach.
The state-of-the-art facility features 16 imaging rooms, five stress test rooms, two echocardiogram rooms, one procedure room and five recovery bays. We offer the full range of advanced imaging technologies, such as 256-slice CT, a powerful and fast imaging tool that produces detailed 3-dimensional images of the heart. Our goal is to use the latest technology to provide the right test for the right patient at the right time, including tests not widely available.
