Patient Referral Form

Our cardiac specialists offer multiple non-invasive stress tests and advanced transesophageal echocardiograms. We are recognized and accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission for Echocardiography (IAC) and the Certification Board of Nuclear Cardiology:

Echocardiography Lab

The echocardiography lab at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens is a state of the art lab utilizing the latest cutting edge diagnostic ultrasound imaging equipment. Staffed by some of the best imaging technologists and compassionate nurses, the following tests are routinely performed:cardiac imaging

  • Routine 2D Echocardiography
  • 2D Strain Imaging Echocardiography (for oncology and infiltrative cardiomyopathy)
  • 3D image acquisition
  • Exercise stress ECG / stress echo (for assessment of functional capacity and ischemic risk stratification)

Nuclear Stress Lab 

The nuclear lab at NewYork-Presbyterian Queens cardiac imagingperforms a myriad of nuclear imaging tests utilizing the lowest dose protocols available. The nuclear lab offers:

  • Low dose/stress first exercise and pharmacologic stress testing
  • Full dose exercise and pharmacologic SPECT stress testing
  • Multigated Acquisition Scanning (MUGA) (for assessment of LV ejection fraction)
  • Pyrophosphate scan (PYP) (for assessment of cardiac amyloidosis)
  • Cardiac viability testing (for target revascularization)
  • PET testing is available at our partner location at Weill Cornell Medical Center

Advanced Cardiac Imaging

Through a joint collaboration with the radiology department, the most advanced cardiac imaging can be performed with very low radiation exposure and expert image interpretation. The following advanced heartimaging procedures are available:

  • Coronary Calcium Scoring (for risk stratification)
  • Cardiac Coronary CT (for anomalous coronary anomaly or low-intermediate risk assessment of coronary artery disease)
  • Cardiac Coronary CT Fractional Flow Reserve (CT-FFR for functional evaluation of severity of coronary lesions)
  • TAVR Cardiac CT (replacement valve sizing and implantation approach planning)
  • Cardiac MRI
