TULSA, Oklahoma -- OSU Medical Center officials were on hand Tuesday morning to dedicate the school's new OSU Mobile Cardiology unit during a ceremony in Tulsa.

The OSU Mobile Cardiology unit will bring state-of-the-art cardiology diagnostic services to Oklahoma communities that don't have access to needed services said Jan Slater, CEO, OSU Medical Center.

"OSU Mobile Cardiology offers critical diagnostic testing on site, at a physician's office, hospital or health-care location," Slater said. "The testing is the same as what you find in a high-level cardiology department like OSU Medical Center."

The unit's testing equipment includes abdominal ultrasound, carotid duplex ultrasound, echocardiogram exercise stress test, exercise stress test, lower extremity duplex ultrasound, nuclear stress testing, nuclear medicine diagnostic studies, stress echocardiography and venous Doppler ultrasound.

For an appointment, patients will first need to talk with their physician for a referral.
