Why Choose Johns Hopkins for Sports Cardiology?

Multidisciplinary, Collaborative Team

Our team includes doctors within sports cardiology as well as specialty cardiologists from the Johns Hopkins Heart and Vascular Institute and Ciccarone Center for Preventive Cardiology to get you back to your sport as quickly and safely as possible.

Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing

Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET) can be done for either clinical testing of symptoms or athletic performance evaluation. The CPET Lab provides comprehensive testing and evaluation of peak VO2 for athletes requiring performance evaluation, with or without a variety of heart and lung conditions to determine whether it is the heart, lungs or skeletal muscles that limits exercise capacity.

State-of-the-art Imaging and Testing

Our Noninvasive Cardiovascular Imaging team provides specialized, advanced imaging of the heart and vascular system at several convenient locations in the Baltimore and Greater Washington, D.C. areas.
