The Cardiovascular Center at Boston Medical Center offers state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment services for a full range of cardiac diseases and conditions, with expertise in interventional cardiology, coronary artery disease, cardiomyopathy (heart failure), arrhythmia, non-invasive imaging and preventive cardiology. The Center’s multidisciplinary team is committed to providing clinical excellence, innovation and compassionate patient care.

We are nationally recognized for our interventional procedures, including balloon angioplasty and stents, but we know that the best medicine is preventive medicine. Thus, we offer a variety of medically supervised exercise and lifestyle-modification programs to help people prone to heart disease lower their risk through physical activity and nutritional counseling. These programs include the Cardiovascular Risk Reduction and Rehabilitation Program, the Exercise Training Consultation Program, the Lipid Program, and the Smoking Cessation Program.

The Vascular Center at Boston Medical Center offers treatment for a variety of peripheral vascular diseases, venous diseases, sasospastic diseases and lymphedema.

Prueba de estrés

Una prueba de esfuerzo se utiliza para obtener más información sobre cómo funciona su corazón durante el ejercicio. Su médico controlará los latidos de su corazón y el flujo sanguíneo mientras camina en una caminadora, y luego podrá diagnosticar cualquier problema y planificar el tratamiento.

Resonancia magnética cardíaca

La resonancia magnética cardíaca (IRM) utiliza un potente campo magnético, ondas de radio y una computadora para crear una imagen clara y concisa del corazón de un paciente en movimiento, sin usar radiación de rayos X. Se utiliza para detectar o controlar problemas cardíacos como infecciones o afecciones inflamatorias, enfermedad de las arterias coronarias, enfermedad cardíaca congénita o para evaluar los efectos de una cirugía. Una resonancia magnética también se usa comúnmente para aclarar hallazgos poco claros de la ecocardiografía.

TC cardiaca

La tomografía computarizada cardíaca (TC cardíaca) es una prueba de rayos X que los médicos utilizan para tomar imágenes claras y detalladas del corazón. La TC cardíaca se utiliza para ayudar a detectar o evaluar problemas como enfermedad coronaria, acumulación de calcio, embolia pulmonar, aneurismas y disecciones. A veces se usa en pacientes que obtuvieron resultados poco claros de una prueba de esfuerzo previa. Es probable que la TC cardíaca no se utilice como prueba de detección en pacientes sin síntomas debido a preocupaciones sobre la exposición a la radiación a largo plazo y la falta de un beneficio comprobado.

PET cardíaco

La tomografía por emisión de positrones cardíaca (PET) es una prueba de imagen nuclear que utiliza trazadores radiactivos para producir imágenes detalladas del corazón. Las tomografías por emisión de positrones se utilizan generalmente para buscar un flujo sanguíneo deficiente en el corazón, para evaluar el daño debido a un ataque cardíaco o para diagnosticar una enfermedad de las arterias coronarias. Una exploración por TEP también se usa comúnmente para aclarar hallazgos poco claros de otras pruebas cardíacas, como la ecocardiografía o la prueba de esfuerzo. A diferencia de la resonancia magnética y la tomografía computarizada, una tomografía por emisión de positrones brinda más información sobre cómo funcionan los órganos y tejidos.
