Advanced imaging is one of WVU’s outstanding strengths. 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 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
  • Non-invasive flow studies
  • Radioisotope examinations of the heart
  • Signal-averaging EGG
  • Stress testing
  • Tilt table
  • Trans-esophageal Echocardiogram (TEE)
  • Vascular ultrasound
