Cardiac Catheterization
271 Carew Street, Springfield, MA 01104

Mercy Medical Center's new Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory is the second one of its kind in Western Massachusetts. Cardiac Catheterization is one of the most reliable techniques available for diagnosing heart disease and determining the severity of almost all types of heart problems. This procedure is especially useful in detecting disease of the coronary arteries that feed the heart.

Mercy’s Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory consists of high-quality x-ray and monitoring equipment which is tailored to cardiovascular imaging. Cardiac Catheterization is a procedure in which one or more thin, flexible tubes, or catheters, are positioned in the heart through a small incision in a blood vessel in the arm or leg. The doctor guides the catheter through an artery or vein into the heart and the coronary arteries in the heart. A dye is injected through the catheter to obtain special x-ray pictures of the heart called angiograms. This allows the physician to see the chambers, valves and arteries. This test can measure blood flow and how much oxygen is in the blood, and provide other information about the pumping ability of the heart muscle.

This procedure is done on an outpatient basis.
