CIMT scan is a painless, ultrasound test of your carotid arteries.
No needles. No radiation.
It provides valuable information about your risk of having a heart attract or stroke.
It takes about 10 minutes.
No need to undress.
Stress test is an EKG performed while a person exercises on a treadmill.
Echocardiogram shows the motion of the heart's walls and pumping action.
Testing may reveal a lack of blood flow that isn't always apparent on other heart tests. The echo is performed before and after the exercise.
It takes about 1 hour and is performed in the office under physician supervision.
An echocardiogram (often called "echo") is a graphic outline of the heart's movement. During this test, high-frequency sound waves, called ultrasound, provide pictures of the heart's valves and chambers. This allows the technician, called a sonographer, to evaluate the pumping action of the heart. Testing takes approximately 30-40 minutes and is performed in the office.
Digital x-rays improve our diagnostic ability by allowing us to zoom in and out on images, change the brightness and contrast, or even add color for detailed analysis for incredibly clear imaging. Our x-ray system is networked directly with a radiologist that can immediately view the images we have obtained for fast accurate results direct to our patient records.
An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) measures the electrical activity of your heart. The heart generates an electrical signal, which flows out from your heart through your body. Small electrical sensors, called electrodes, are put on your skin to sense the electricity that began in your heart. The electrical activity is then turned into a graph. This can give us an idea of whether your heart is beating normally.
AND 24 HOUR HEART MONITORING
The carotid doppler ultrasound is a non-invasive test that uses sound waves to measure the flow of blood through the large carotid arteries that supply blood to the brain. These arteries can become narrowed due to arteriosclerosis or other causes. The carotid doppler test can help determine stroke risk and the need for preventive measures. Testing takes approximately 30-45 minutes and is performed in the office.
Spirometry measures lung health by a patient blowing into a diagnostic computer.
It evaluates lung conditions that inflame or narrow the airways, such as asthma or COPD.
Spirometry is helpful for screening, monitoring, and diagnosing shortness of breath, wheezing, or coughing.
