Cardiac Catheterization Lab


If you suffer from heart disease, we need to get a good look at your heart. The Cardiac Cath Lab at St. Mary Medical Center conducts diagnostic and interventional cardiology and peripheral vascular procedures.

Most of these can be done without you having to stay over in the hospital.

  • Angioplasty/Stenting
  • Cardiac Nuclear Scans
  • CT Heart Scan
  • Echocardiogram
  • Electrocardiogram
  • Heart MRI
  • Stress Test
  • Tilt Table
  • 24-hour EKG recording
  • Stress Echo Cardiogram

The all-digital cardiovascular imaging system used by St. Mary Medical Center cardiologists enables us to easily and quickly view the structure and functioning of your heart.

Complex Procedures

  • Biopsies and draining fluid build-up around the heart
  • Diagnostic and interventional vascular procedures in the arteries and veins of the extremities (we use carbon dioxide instead of dye for peripheral vascular procedures, thus protecting the kidneys)
  • Electrophysiology studies to detect and treat heart rhythm disorders and atrial fibrillation, plus implantation of pacemakers and AICDs (implantable defibrillators) 

For questions and concerns about a procedure, please call 562.491.9375.
