The Valley Approach to Cardiac Imaging
The program collaborates with Valley’s many cardiac specialists and radiologists to provide early diagnosis of heart disease and other cardiac conditions. Through this focus, the program’s goal is to offer patients the best possible outcome.
As part of Valley Heart Care’s team approach, the program integrates imaging technologies into Valley's preventive cardiology, structural heart, cardiac surgery and electrophysiology programs. The different cardiac specialties work together to create individualized treatment plans for each patient using imaging as a foundation.
Cardiac Imaging Procedures
- Cardiac CT
- Cardiac MRI
- HeartFlow Analysis to diagnose coronary artery disease
- Nuclear Imaging (SPECT, PET/CT)
Why Choose Valley for Cardiac Imaging?
- Alliance with Cleveland Clinic: Valley’s alliance with Cleveland Clinic’s Heart, Vascular & Thoracic Institute – the nation’s No. 1-ranked heart care facility since 1995 by U.S. News & World Report – provides opportunities for Valley cardiac physicians to share knowledge, expertise and best practices. The Valley-Cleveland Clinic alliance combines academic, clinical and research components of both organizations.
- Advanced specialty training in imaging: The program is run by Himanshu Gupta, MD, FACC, a cardiologist and cardiovascular imaging specialist. Dr. Gupta is board certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) in Cardiovascular Medicine and is a Diplomate of the Certification Board of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (CBCCT), Certification Board of Nuclear Cardiology (CBNC) and National Board of Echocardiography (NBE). He has the highest level of training in cardiovascular MRI.
- Focus on research: Dr. Gupta has conducted innovative research in preventive cardiology, valvular heart disease, pulmonary hypertension, and diastolic heart failure. Dr. Gupta’s research has led to the development of new, non-invasive approaches to evaluating diastolic dysfunction, a major cause for heart failure.
