Scheduling Diagnostic and Testing Services
Before making an appointment:
Check your insurance plans to ensure testing is covered
A referral form from your insurance company or doctor
Preparing for an Echocardiogram or Nuclear Cardiogram
Before your echocardiogram or nuclear cardiogram:
Avoid solid food or caffeine within six hours of the scan and take oral fluids to avoid dehydration. Contact the office for specific instruction pertaining to medications.
Learn more about your risk factors – they are different for men and women.
Inform your doctor of any medications you take; if you have health conditions such as diabetes, knee or hip problems, arthritis, asthma or chronic lung disease; of any history of stroke or vascular disease of the leg; and if you are pregnant or a nursing mother.
