The best treatment for any disease begins with a prompt and accurate diagnosis. For cardiovascular diseases, it also means a better chance of survival with a lower risk of damage.
There are many types of tests for your doctor to find out what is happening to your heart. Lowell General Hospital has a wide range of cutting-edge diagnostic tools to give our doctors specific technology to pinpoint troubles in the heart and find the best way to treat them. Depending on the nature of your symptoms or the problems you are having, tests may be done externally (monitoring from the outside of your body) or internally (by going into your heart).
