Department Description

The UCSF Cardiology Clinic uses the most sophisticated tools to diagnose heart and vascular disease in people who may be at high-risk, such as those with a family history of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or those nearing middle age and worried about a lifestyle that has been harsh on the heart.

Screening in the Cardiology Clinic consists of laboratory tests to measure the amounts of fats and cholesterol in the blood, and a combination of non-surgical imaging technologies that provide physicians a window into the heart. Also, the full range of heart disease prevention and treatment are available from drug therapy to invasive procedures and surgery.

Cardiologists are involved in a wide range of basic (laboratory) and clinical (patient) research. UCSF's strength over the years has been the investigation of new therapies for heart disease, such as catheter ablation of heart rhythm disturbances. More recently, we have begun to study the application of stem cells to the treatment of heart disease.
