Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiovascular Services

At Marion General we have a full range of diagnostic and interventional care including catherization, magnetic resonance imaging and PRA/Stent placements. 

The latest techniques are available, including Radial Access for interventional procedures where the cardiologist gains access through the wrist instead of the leg, helping our patients feel more comfortable, leading to a faster recovery time.
