Our cardiologists offer comprehensive evaluation and management of diseases of the heart and circulatory system and work with primary care physicians to ensure coordinated, continuous care.

Our faculty have expertise in every aspect of cardiac care, ranging from standard procedures such as outpatient consultation, echocardiography, and angiography to advanced clinical research into heart failure, preventive cardiology, and radio-frequency ablation.

Special services include physical fitness evaluation, non-invasive and invasive studies, interventional procedures, and radioisotope examinations of the heart.

The WVU Heart and Vascular Institute’s Cardiology Section is led by Partho Sengupta, M.D., chief of the Section of Cardiology in the Heart and Vascular Institute and in the WVU School of Medicine Department of Medicine, and director of Cardiovascular Imaging and chair of the Center for Innovation at the WVU Heart and Vascular Institute.

Advanced imaging is one of WVU Medicine’s outstanding strengths. Heart and Vascular Imaging Services (HVIS), formerly known as the Cardiovascular Interventional Services (CVIS), is located on the third floor of the southeast tower at J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital. It is directly across from echo/vascular, stress testing, and nuclear cardiology.  The newly-renovated space houses transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) prep, procedure, and recovery rooms, and additional echo and vascular ultrasound rooms.

In addition, our team works closely with the Center for Advanced Imaging (CAI), a 12,000-square-foot research and clinical imaging facility. Our specialists have access to the latest technology, including 3-Tesla MRI — twice as powerful as regular MRI — positron emission tomography (PET) and others.

WVU Medicine also has a 64-Slice CT scanner that provides a real-time ultrasound 3-D image of the patient’s heart. Using this cutting-edge tool, the healthcare team can diagnose congenital heart disease, valvular disease, pericardial disease, cardiomyopathy, and other cardiovascular disorders.

Diagnostic procedures performed at the WVU Heart and Vascular Institute include:

  • 64-Slice CT scan
  • Abdominal aorta ultrasound
  • Aortography
  • Arrhythmia mapping
  • Cardiac MRI
  • Carotid ultrasound
  • Computerized Tomography (CT) scan
  • CT angiography
  • D SPECT
  • Echocardiogram
  • Electrocardiogram (ECG)
  • Electrophysiological studies (EPS)
  • Event monitors
  • Holter monitoring
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging
