Heart & Vascular Testing

The Cardiovascular Center at Kingwood Medical CenterKingwood Medical Center provides cardiologists with the latest technologies and diagnostic equipment so they can quickly diagnose heart problems and customize a treatment plan for their patients.

Electrophysiology (EP Studies)

We have the area’s first Cardiac Electrophysiology (EP) program. Electrophysiology is the study of rhythm disorders of the heart (abnormal heartbeats or arrhythmias).

EP studies are performed to see how well the electrical pathways within the heart muscle are working and to detect abnormal heart rhythms. These studies help physicians evaluate abnormal electrocardiograms (EKG), detect complex arrhythmias, evaluate future risk of developing arrhythmias and design the best treatment plan for each patient.
