A stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is disrupted, resulting in the death of brain cells. Strokes are classified into two types: ischemic and hemorrhagic. Ischemic strokes occur when a blood clot or plaque buildup in the brain blocks a blood vessel. Hemorrhagic strokes result from blood vessels breaking and leaking into or around the brain.About Stroke

A coronary calcium scan looks for calcium specks in (and on) the walls of the coronary (heart) arteries. Calcifications in the coronary arteries are an early sign of coronary heart disease (CHD). Coronary heart disease occurs when a waxy substance called plaque accumulates in the coronary arteries. Cardiac CT is often used to assess heart chambers, heart valves, and surrounding blood vessels. Dr. Steven Reisman can use Coronary Calcium Scan Tests to measure calcium in the coronary arteries and identify the risk of heart disease.About Coronary Calcium Scan/ Cardiac
An echocardiogram is an ultrasound test used to assess the heart's function. It is a painless and non-invasive procedure conducted by a trained sonographer that allows physicians to see the anatomy, structure, and function of all four chambers and valves of the heart. An echocardiogram uses sound waves to create "moving pictures" of the heart. The ultrasound and electrocardiography (ECG) signals are digitally recorded for the doctor to review.About Echocardiography
An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a non-invasive, painless test that monitors the heart's rhythm and electrical activity. Dr. Steven Reisman, a world-class heart doctor, may recommend an ECG for those at high risk of heart disease due to a family history of heart disease, smoking, being overweight, or having diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure.About Electrocardiography
Stress tests are performed under the supervision of a doctor to assess the cardiovascular system during exercise and increased demand. Cardiac stress test measures exercise capacity and identifies abnormal exercise responses. Depending on the individual's age, history, symptoms, and risk factors, we offer a variety of stress tests in our facility.About Stress test
A Holter monitor is a small wearable ECG recording device used to monitor your heart rhythm over 24 hours. Any abnormal heartbeats/rhythms are detected during your cardiac testing period. The Holter monitor is about the size of a mobile phone and must be worn around your waist. You can continue with your normal everyday activities while using the device.About “Holter” ECG Monitoring
Carotid Vascular Ultrasound testing (also known as a "duplex study") of the carotid arteries is a simple, safe, and painless in-office test that uses sound waves to create images of blood circulation.About Vascular Ultrasound
