Cardiac Testing Price List

At Trinity Heart and Vascular Group, we provide a wide range of cardiovascular testing in Johnson City, TN and Greeneville, TN, including stress tests, EKGs, extended-wear cardiac monitors, and cardiovascular ultrasounds.

Since we are a cash-based cardiology practice, we offer competitive, fully transparent prices for all in-office cardiac testing.* These prices are applicable to everyone — whether you live in the Tri-Cities area, other Tennessee locations, or even out of state. These prices are also the same regardless of whether you have health insurance or not.

You do not have to be an established patient at our practice to take advantage of our in-office testing services. We simply need a written test order from your referring medical provider.

We conduct non-emergency appointments, and offer these tests during our normal business hours.

*Fees are subject to change.

EKG and Cardiac Risk Assessment

This test records the electrical signals from your heart through the use of electrodes (small patches that adhere to the skin). You lie on an exam table, where electrodes are attached to your chest, legs, and arms. These electrodes measure and record your heart rate, rhythm, and other electrical signals from the heart. Typically, this test takes 5 to 10 minutes.

This service is for individuals who have no personal history of cardiac disease, and who would like to make sure that their heart is healthy enough to start an exercise regimen, or to participate in organized sports.

If you have a family history of cardiac issues, or have a concern about the possible presence of undiagnosed heart disease, the cardiac risk assessment is an excellent way to screen for cardiac issues that could manifest in a dangerous way while doing exercise-related activities.

A cardiac risk assessment is recommended for children (over the age of 8) or adults (any age) who want to participate in exercise programs and/or sports programs, and who have a family history of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, long QT syndrome, Marfan’s syndrome, Wolf-Parkinson-White syndrome, or sudden cardiac arrest, particularly associated with physical exertion.

This assessment includes a provider evaluation, EKG, and screening echocardiogram.

Stress Testing

[All tests in this category are only available at our Greeneville location.]

This test is for patients who have a normal or near normal resting ECG/EKG, and who are able to exercise adequately and safely on a treadmill. This test cannot be done if you have a pacemaker, a defibrillator, or an electrical abnormality called Left Bundle Branch Block (LBBB).

The test is used to determine how exercise affects your heart rate and blood pressure, and to see if exercise causes abnormal heart rhythms and/or induces abnormal blood flow to the heart muscle. This test is conducted while you walk on a treadmill.

Before you start, electrodes are attached to your chest and stomach so that an EKG can be performed while you’re exercising, and a blood pressure cuff is placed on either your right or left your arm, and a heart monitor cable is secured around your waist.

After the treadmill starts, the speed and incline are gradually increased to get your heart rate to increase. Once your heart rate is increased to a certain level and you can no longer exercise, the treadmill will slowly be brought to a stop. On average, this test takes about 5 to 15 minutes.

This test is very similar to an ETT Nuclear stress test, except instead of receiving a radioisotope that is imaged from a gamma camera, cardiac ultrasound images are taken instead. However, this test duration is shorter, and is generally concluded in about one hour.

This test is very similar to a dobutamine nuclear stress test, except instead of receiving a radioisotope that is imaged from a gamma camera, cardiac ultrasound images are taken instead. However, test duration is shorter, and is generally concluded in about one hour.

Cardiac Ultrasound

This test uses ultrasound waves to capture images of every valve and chamber in your heart to see how your heart muscles function in ‘real time.’ Intracardiac pressure and blood flow are measured in each heart chamber in order to create a detailed report on how your heart is working as a whole. Gel is placed on your chest, and the ultrasound transducer captures images of your heart from multiple angles.

On average, this test usually takes about 50 minutes.

This test is a condensed, shorter version of the comprehensive echocardiogram. A limited echocardiogram uses ultrasound waves to view a specific valve in your heart that may be causing issues, instead of viewing every valve in your heart. Gel is placed on your chest, and the ultrasound transducer captures images of the heart from multiple angles.

On average, this test usually takes about 30 minutes.

Echo contrast enhances the image quality of pumping chambers. This is an ‘add-on’ to a comprehensive or limited echocardiogram (the price of the contrast is added to the price of your echocardiogram). Echo contrast is administered through an IV, which provides a clearer picture of the function of the various chambers of your heart.

Agitated IV fluid contrast is used to detect blood flow shunts within the heart. This is an ‘add-on’ to a comprehensive or limited echocardiogram (the price of the contrast is added to the price of your echocardiogram). Agitated IV fluid (typically saline) solution is administered rapidly through an IV line. It is aimed to detect the presence of certain intracardiac communications between heart chambers (‘holes in the heart’).

Vascular Testing

[This test is only available at our Greeneville location.]

This test is used to determine the adequacy of blood flow to your lower limbs. You will lie down an exam table, and rest for a short period of time.

Afterwards, while still lying on the exam table, blood pressure cuffs are placed on both arms and both ankles, and your systolic pressure in each arm and each ankle is measured and recorded. A report is then generated.

[This test is only available at our Greeneville location.]

This test is the same as the Rest ABI (as seen immediately above) but has an added exercise component.

It is used to determine the adequacy of blood flow to your lower limbs, especially if exercise-induced leg symptoms are present.

First, you will lie down on an exam table, and rest for a short period of time.

Afterwards, while still lying on the exam table, blood pressure cuffs are placed on both arms and both ankles, and your systolic pressure in each arm and each ankle is measured and recorded.

Next, you will walk on a treadmill at a gradually increased speed and incline until your symptoms appear (i.e., pain and/or pressure in your extremities) or for a predetermined period of time. You will then lie back down on the exam table, and blood pressure cuffs will be placed on both arms and both ankles again to measure your arm and leg blood pressure readings. A report is then generated.

This ultrasound test is used to detect an aneurysm in the portion of your aorta that runs through your abdominal area. In addition to being used for screening, it can also be used for follow-up after an abdominal aortic aneurysm.

Ultrasound gel and a transducer are placed on your abdomen to your aorta, and sounds waves from the ultrasound produce pictures of how your blood flows through that area.

This ultrasound test is used to capture images of how blood flows through your carotid arteries, which are located in the neck region. Ultrasound gel and a transducer are placed on your neck, which produces images that show the width or narrowness of your carotid arteries due to the presence or absence of atherosclerotic plaque.
