Testing Instructions

VCS is proud to offer patients some of the most advanced testing procedures available to help accurately diagnose and treat cardiovascular conditions. Our Nuclear, Echocardiography, Vascular, and Computed Tomography (CT) sites are all accredited. Meaning, our physicians, staff, equipment, and procedures meet the highest standards. Preventive and diagnostic tests that are non-invasive are conducted in the comfort and convenience of our offices. More invasive procedures requiring hospital services are scheduled at the preferred hospital of you and your VCS physician.

Because of the sensitive nature of cardiovascular testing procedures and our desire to obtain the highest quality results, we ask that you please read and follow the specific pre-test instructions applicable to your appointment. Simple instructions for the most common cardiovascular tests and procedures are listed below. For more details on the test and what to expect, please also visit our education center.
