Heart Imaging

Advances in imaging technology have sparked fundamental changes in the approach to cardiac care. At Mount Sinai Heart, our insight into the progression of cardiovascular disease enables us to identify a condition at an earlier stage and with greater accuracy.

The Cardiovascular Imaging Center houses the latest state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment. Our imaging tools help us discover medical problems that several years ago were undetectable using conventional methods of diagnosis.

Tools for Detecting Heart Disease

Among the diagnostic technologies the Cardiovascular Imaging Center employs are:

These noninvasive tools safely offer unparalleled detail, enabling Mount Sinai Heart doctors to help patients of all ages, says Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD, Professor of Cardiology and Director of Mount Sinai Heart. From fetuses diagnosed using ultrasound technology to centenarians cared for by geriatric cardiologists, this "longitudinal" diagnostic capability is a hallmark of Mount Sinai.

The Imaging Center is a prime example of Mount Sinai Heart's multidisciplinary approach to patient care. Communication between clinicians and researchers is among Mount Sinai Heart’s many distinctions. What makes us unique is the Center's consolidation of top-rated professionals and advanced technological resources in a single New York facility.

Anyone at risk for cardiovascular disease or who wants to learn more about prevention can call one of Mount Sinai Heart's doctors for a consultation at 1-800-MD-SINAI (1-800-637-4624). Patients will receive a comprehensive lifestyle evaluation and a customized prevention plan. If imaging studies are indicated, you will be referred to the Imaging Center.
