Electrocardiogram (EKG)
The Holter monitor is a portable electrocardiogram (EKG) that monitors the electrical activity of an ambulatory (freely moving) patient’s heart for 24 hours while the person goes about daily activities. There are a few reasons a physician might request that a patient wear a Holter monitor, but the most common is to diagnose an abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia). It is also sometimes used to monitor existing pacemakers, diagnose a lack of oxygen-rich blood flowing to the heart (cardiac ischemia) and measure variability in the heart rate.

Carotid Artery Scan
A carotid scan which uses ultrasound technology determines the blood flow of the arteries that supply blood from the heart through the neck to the brain. It uses sound waves to detect any blockages of the carotid arteries of the neck and/or the branches of the carotid artery. A carotid artery duplex scan is a noninvasive (the skin is not pierced) procedure.

Cardiac Catheterization
A coronary stent is an artificial stainless tube device which is placed in the coronary artery to maintain vessel opening after treatment for coronary artery disease. Coronary artery stents have been designed to overcome some of the short comings of angioplasty, which is a technique that dilates, with the help of a catheter, an area of arterial blockage with a small inflatable, sausage-shaped balloon at its tip.
