Invasive, Non-Interventional Cardiology

Invasive cardiologists do all the things non-invasive cardiologists can do, plus a bit more. Invasive cardiologists are trained in a diagnostic procedure called cardiac catheterization, which is used to find blockages of the arteries.

If a blockage is found, and an additional procedure is needed, the non-interventional cardiologist would refer the patient to an interventional cardiologist for the angioplasty or whatever procedure is needed.
