Imaging procedures, invasive diagnostic and therapeutic medical procedures are available both in patients and outpatients in the cardiac catheterization (cath) labs. Testing performed in the cat lab is not limited to the heart but may include vessels in the legs, kidneys, or other organs. Therapeutic procedures, such as balloon angioplasty and stinting, may also be performed in these vessels. A team approach to care is provided by cardiologists, registered nurses, cardiovascular technologists, and registered radiology technologists. The Providence team recently received national recognition for performance excellence in Cath Lab Digest, a leading industry publication.
