DOWNERS GROVE, IL – In a first for the entire midwestern part of the country, Duly Health and Care has opened a new outpatient Cardiac Evaluation Center, providing same-day evaluations of patients with non-life-threatening symptoms such as chest pain, palpitations, shortness of breath or rapid heart rate.
Located at 430 Warrenville Road, in Lisle, the Center is home to the region’s only CardioGraphe™, a sophisticated cardiovascular CT that captures images of the whole heart by a single beat, in just .24 seconds. The scan produces a direct visualization of the coronary arteries and cardiac structures, generating a blueprint to guide cardiac specialists in accurate diagnoses and appropriate interventions. Unlike CT scanners used in hospitals to diagnose a variety of conditions, Duly’s CardioGraphe is dedicated exclusively to use by cardiologists for patients in need of heart care.
According to Evans Pappas, MD, a Board-certified cardiologist and Chair of Duly’s Department of Cardiology, “About 85% of chest pain evaluations occur in the hospital emergency room, with discharge home that same day. Our Center provides an experience that is not only superior in terms of clinical diagnosis but much more convenient, cost-effective and efficient in delivering patients a complete picture of their heart health in a single outpatient visit.”
The Cardiac Evaluation Center is staffed by an experienced team of Board-certified cardiologists and skilled heart care clinicians who utilize exercise and nuclear stress testing, echocardiograms, continuous cardiac telemetry monitoring, and on-site blood work, in addition to the CardioGraphe CT, to develop diagnosis and treatment plans.
The Center serves as a hub for patients in need of cardiac evaluation and workups. Patients receive same-day results. “Duly Health and Care is committed to helping all we serve flourish, and a healthy heart is key to that,” said Dr. Pappas.
