The Heart & Vascular Center is committed to providing the highest level of care to our patients utilizing state of the art digital technology for the diagnosis of cardiovascular disease. The cardiac imaging section performs about 12,000 procedures annually yet offers a personal touch and first-class customer service. Imaging services include:
- Transesophageal Echocardiography (TEE)
- Stress Testing

The echocardiography laboratory at MetroHealth was the first adult echo lab in Cuyahoga County to be certified by the Intersocietal Commission for the Accreditation of Echocardiography Laboratories, an independent national accreditation society.
In 2011, the lab was recertified by the ICAEL for transthoracic, transesophageal and stress echocardiograms, making it one of the few labs in Northeast Ohio to continually achieve this quality benchmark for all echo modalities.
