Non-invasive tests performed at UofL Health - Jewish Hospital Shelbyville include:

  • Echocardiogram (echo) - This test uses sound waves to produce a study of the motion of the heart's valves and chambers. The echo sound waves create an image on a monitor as an ultrasound transducer is passed over the heart.
  • Stress Test - Electrical activity of the heart is measured through electrodes that you wear while exercising. This test measures how well the heart performs during exercise.
  • Nuclear Stress Test - Similar to a traditional stress test, a nuclear stress test makes use of a radioactive dye that shows how well the blood flows into the heart muscle at rest and shortly after exercise.
  • Pharmacological Nuclear Test - For patients who cannot exercise, this stress test makes use of medication to simulate how well the blood flows into the heart muscle during after a period of exertion.
  • Electrocardiogram (EKG) - This test measures the electrical activity/rhythm of the heart.
  • Holter Monitor - 24 Hour monitoring device that patients wear home and return for review by a cardiologist. The device monitors cardiac rhythms to find irregularities and determine if further testing is needed.
