Tests & Screenings

Diagnosis is the first step to getting better. Learn more about the wide range of heart disease screenings and tests we may offer at San Ramon Regional Medical Center. Below you’ll find information on several screenings and tests we might discuss with you

24-hour Holter monitors

24-hour Holter monitors are battery operated ECG devices, which monitor and record the heart's electrical activity for 24 hours.

Arterial vascular study lower extremity

An arterial vascular study of the lower extremity typically involves inflating blood pressure cuffs on the legs while recording the pulse sounds through a Doppler transducer.

Electrocardiogram (ECG)

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a test in which electrodes on the chest are used to monitor and record the electrical activity of the heart.

Electroencephalogram (EEG)

An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that uses electrodes placed on the scalp to detect the electrical activity of the brain.

Thallium and dobutamine testing

Thallium and dobutamine are two medications that are used to facilitate cardiac testing. Thallium is a radioactive substance that travels through the vessels and helps make the path the blood has traveled visible while dobutamine chemically increases the heart rate for those who are unable to walk on a treadmill.
