Heart Associates of Long Island: State of the Art Imaging Technology

At HALI, we use the latest technology to ensure accuracy, efficacy, safety, and to enhance the patient experience for you.

Electronic medical records (EMR): Your HALI physician can access these secure, Internet-based records from home or while on call. EMRs help provide a higher quality of care because all of the medical professionals treating you will have the same medical information about you at their fingertips.

Pacemaker check monitoring program: Our program enables you, as the patient, to send an electrocardiogram over the phone to your HALI physician.

ABI and CVI technology: At HALI, we use a non-invasive ankle-brachial index (ABI) screening test to diagnose peripheral artery disease (PAD) in your legs and noninvasive technology to diagnose Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI).

Echocardiogram machines: To ensure high quality imaging, we use a GE Vivid 7 machine, which is considered the gold standard of echocardiogram machines.

Nuclear cardiac cameras: We’ve invested in a GE Millennium Myosight gamma camera, which is known for its increased diagnostic accuracy. It provides images faster, and it’s more comfortable for our patients, because there’s less motion.

Prone imaging: When your HALI cardiologist uses a gamma camera to provide a diagnosis, he will have you lie on your stomach instead of your back, so that he can see different areas of your heart better. This method doesn’t expose you to further radiation, and it is incorporated into your standard nuclear test.
