HEART >> Test >> Additional evaluations
A range of additional evaluations, besides Lipid Profile, are used to assess chest pain and other symptoms. These include:
  • A medical history, including an evaluation of risk factors such as age, CAD, diabetes, and smoking
  • A physical examination
  • An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) – a test that looks at the heart’s electrical activity and rhythm
  • Echocardiography – ultrasound imaging of the heart Based on the findings of these tests, other procedures may be necessary, including:
  • Stress testing
  • Chest X-ray
  • CT (Computerized tomography) scan
  • Continuous ECG monitoring (sometimes also called Holter monitoring) – the person being tested wears a monitor that evaluates heart rhythm over a period of time.
  • MRI (Magnetic resonance imaging)
  • PET (Positron emission tomography)
  • Radionuclide imaging
  • Cardiac catheterization – in this procedure, a thin flexible tube is inserted into an artery in the leg and threaded up to the coronary arteries to evaluate blood flow and pressure in the heart and the status of the arteries in the heart.
  • Coronary angiography – X-rays of arteries using a radiopaque dye to help diagnose CAD; this procedure is performed during coronary catheterization.
  • Tilt table test – ordered to evaluate syncope
