Vascular & Heart Disease Diagnosis
At Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, we believe that everyone
who comes to our Heart & Vascular Center is unique. We develop personalized
treatment plans for each patient. The first step in a vascular or heart disease diagnosis may include
one or more tests to help us accurately diagnose your condition. We are a
nationally recognized leader in some forms of diagnostic testing, such as
cardiovascular imaging for heart disease diagnosis. This level of expertise is why many hospitals refer
their most complex cases to us.
