Sports Cardiology Screenings: University of Maryland Heart and Vascular Center

Pre-screening is key. Know your risk of heart disease.


Sports cardiology is a growing, relatively new field that focuses on screening athletes for heart disease. Early screening is critical for anyone who is physically active beyond everyday activities in order to prevent sudden cardiac death.

From a child starting out in sports to adults running their first 5k, it is important to identify risk of cardiac episodes prior to exercising.

At the University of Maryland, our sports cardiology specialists focus on these specific diseases, both in pediatric and adult patients.

  • Arrhythmia
  • Congenital heart disease
  • Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

Our cardiologists are part of our larger sports medicine program, which also includes orthopedic physicians and practitioners from other specialties. They work as a team to prevent risks to athletes from cardiac causes and to identify other potential health issues, too.
