Heart Care

Cardiac catheterization is an invasive procedure using a live television image to assess the function of a patient's heart. A catheter is used to inject a special dye into the heart cavity. Special x-ray equipment is used to project a live camera image onto a television screen, which allows the physician to visually assess the heart muscle and function.

Englewood Community Hospital has expertly trained staff, and proudly employs the very latest technology in cardiac catheterization.
