Glossary of Terms

Cardiovascular Imaging
Non-invasive cardiovascular imaging including echocardiography, nuclear imaging studies, cardiac CT scan, and cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging allows for detailed assessment for identification of structural heart abnormalities associated with heart rhythm issues. Cardiac MRI can provide detailed 3-Dimensional visualization of cardiovascular structure and can define specific tissue characteristics of the heart. Invasive cardiac catheterization allows for assessment of heart pressures and coronary artery abnormalities which can be associated with rhythm disturbances.
