Welcome to the

Cardiology Technologists Association of Nova Scotia

Who we are

We are a not for profit, self-governing association established to protect and advance the interests of our members and the cardiology technologist profession in Nova Scotia and PEI. We do so by supporting the continuous development of individual technologists and the profession generally by promoting the profession and advocating to government on behalf of the profession. CTANS acts as a liaison between its members and the national governing body, the Canadian Society of Cardiology Technologists(CSCT).

What we do

We perform a variety of non-invasive cardiac diagnostic tests such as Electrocardiograms, Exercise Stress Testing, Holter monitoring as well as cardiac device monitoring and programming. To many patients, we are the front line workers and friendly faces they see when receiving care for their heart disease.
