Medical City Arlington offers complete diagnostics for patients. Cardiac catheterization (or coronary angiograms) is a specialized study of the heart. It functions as an invaluable diagnostic tool for a number of reasons, including its ability to:

  • Gauge blood flow and blood pressure in the chambers of the heart
  • Determine how well the heart valves function
  • Check for defects in the way the wall of the heart moves
