EKG

Preparation

1. Avoid oily or greasy skin creams and lotions the day of the test because they can keep the electrodes from making contact with your skin.

2. Avoid full-length hosiery, because electrodes need to be placed directly on your legs.

3. Wear a shirt that you can remove easily to place the leads on your chest.

4. Do not drink or eat caffeinated products (cola, chocolate, coffee, tea) for 24 hours before the test. Caffeine will interfere with the results of your test. Do not take any over-the-counter medications that contain caffeine for 24 hours before the test.

Procedure

Real time imaging of the four chambers of the heart, hear valves and the wall of the heart, pericardium and blood vessels entering and leaving the heart.

Examination Time:  Approximately 30 minutes.

Ultrasound Pricing

To help you make the best financial decision about your medical costs, Sacramento Imaging offers a cash pay price in all diagnostic ultrasound scans. The cash pay price is the price you pay in full before a medical procedure.

Note: The cash pay price does not include physician fees; they are additional.*

Paying the medical cost before the time of service can mean significant savings to you. Medical costs can vary for each individual, depending on the type of procedure you have, your insurance benefit coverage and deductible. If you have insurance coverage, and you select a cash pay price, Sacramento Imaging does not bill the insurance for these services.

We Are Open For Business!

~ We will be limiting our schedule to no more than 8 patients per day. This allows time for us to see patients, have them go to the bathroom, clean the room & waiting area, etc.

Family members are welcome to attend appointments with patients.

~ In order to ensure the safety of staff and other patients, it is important for patients and visitors to be wearing masks.

~ Please arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment time.

~ If you arrive early and see another family/patient in the waiting area, please wait in the hallway until they exit. The waiting room is small and having many people in there at once would go against social distancing protocol/patient & staff safety.

~ Please use the hand sanitizer at the front desk when entering the waiting room.
