Office Based Services

 

  • Advanced echocardiographic imaging capabilities: Located on site are high resolution echocardiographic imaging systems. Dr. Chanana performs the scanning himself right in the office after he examines the patient, and provide you with an immediate interpretation of the images, allowing a seamless office evaluation. All images are acquired and stored digitally, allowing the doctors to immediately compare current and prior studies.

  • Our pediatric echocardiography lab has the capabilities to share echocardiogram images with cardiac surgical centers in Oklahoma City, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio as the images are obtained in our office. This makes seamless evaluation and managment especially for  children with complex congenital heart disease who require open-heart surgeries or interventional cardiac catheterization at these centers.

  • Management of the adult with complex congenital defects: These patients typically require a multi-disciplinary approach with input from a number of physicians. We are pleased to provide the diagnostic imaging and cardiac management care specific for each heart condition to complement the care provided by the patient’s primary care physician (and adult cardiologist in some situations.)

  • Pacemaker interrogation and management: A patient with “heart block” may need a life-long pacemaker. These devices require scheduled “interrogation” to ensure that the battery life is sufficient and that the internal wires are conducting energy appropriately. We perform this service in our office.

  • Electrocardiography (EKG): Standard 12 lead EKG’s are often performed during a patient’s office evaluation. The results are discussed with the family at the time of the visit.

  • 24 hour Holter and 30 day event monitors: These monitors are used to capture heart rhythm disorders. We use the latest generation equipment for accurate diagnoses, and for your convenience, we use a mail-in system for equipment returns.

  • 24 hour Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring: These monitors are used to evaluate kid with high blood pressure. These devices play a very important role in diagnosing white coat hypertension which is commonly seen in adolescents and prevents unnecessary workup and medications.
