A cardiac evaluation is a comprehensive assessment of the heart's health. It is typically performed by a cardiologist, a doctor who specializes in the heart and blood vessels. The evaluation may include a number of tests, such as: 

Physical examination: The doctor will examine your heart, lungs, and other vital signs.

Medical history: The doctor will ask about your family history of heart disease, your current medications, and any symptoms you may be experiencing.

Laboratory tests: The doctor may order blood tests to check your cholesterol levels, blood sugar levels, and other factors that can affect your heart health.

Electrocardiogram (ECG): An ECG is a test that records the electrical activity of your heart. This test can help to detect heart problems, such as arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats).

Chest X-ray: A chest X-ray can help to detect structural problems with your heart, such as an enlarged heart or fluid around the heart.

Echocardiogram: An echocardiogram is an ultrasound of the heart. This test can help to assess the size and function of your heart, and to detect problems such as heart valve disease or heart muscle damage.

Stress test: A stress test is a test that measures how your heart responds to exercise. This test can help to detect heart problems that may only occur when your heart is working hard.

Cardiac catheterization: A cardiac catheterization is a procedure in which a thin tube is inserted into a blood vessel in your arm or leg and threaded up to your heart. This test can help to diagnose heart problems, such as coronary artery disease (CAD).
