Non-Invasive Cardiology Department

Cardiology Dept.The California Cardiovascular Institute takes great pride in our non-invasive department.

At the Institute, we employ a wide range of diagnostic testing capabilities to evaluate the status of your cardiovascular system.

We utilize standard treadmill testing, echocardiography, Hotter monitoring, nuclear services, and other modalities.

Our echocardiographic laboratory uses the state-of-the art digital systems. Our echocardiographic technicians Kathy Long and Mike Tognotti are both ARDMS-certified and highly experienced (33 and 25 years respectively).

Dr. Nelson's has a special interest in nuclear cardiology. His first publication in cardiology was made from a discovery during exercise treadmill nuclear testing, which he presented at the "10" World Congress of Cardiology in Washington DC in 1986. Our nuclear laboratory is certified by ICANL (www.icanl.org) and Dr. Nelson is a Board Certified Nuclear Cardiologist (www.cbnc.org).

Our nuclear technologists Ron Rustigian is certified by ARRT, CNMT, and NMTCB and has over 32 years of experience. We utilize the Philips Cardio, MD Nuclear Camera for imaging and Sun Workstation for processing of the images.

What also makes the Institute nuclear laboratory special is that Dr. Nelson himself performs every nuclear and non-nuclear stress test. We are proud of both our safety and efficiency at the Institute. In over 21 years, we have never had a heart attack, stroke, death, as a result of a stress test. Dr. Nelson himself is ACLS certified. Finally, 99% of all studies at the Institute are interpreted and dictated on the same day. The transcription is sent out to all referring physicians the next day.
