Electroencephalograph (EEG) can help in the diagnosis of a variety of neurological problems from common headaches and dizziness to seizure disorders, strokes and degenerative brain disease.
An electrocardiogram (EKG) is a record of the electrical activity of the heart to allow diagnosis of abnormal heart conditions.
Cardiac Stress Testing
A stress test is an exercise test that examines the function of the heart. Patients are asked to walk on a treadmill to increase their heart rate while being monitored via EKG readings to check for irregularities in the heart rhythm.
Computed Tomography (CT) scans take detailed cross-sectional images of the body that are used to identify specific conditions.

The 64-slice LightSpeed® VCT at Vista Medical Center East can capture images of a beating heart in five heartbeats, meaning less radiation exposure than other CT systems.
