  • Chest X-Ray

 
 

Diagnostic Imaging Tests

Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Computerized Tomography (CT)

Considered the “Gold Standard” for early detection and prevention of cancer and cancer related diseases. PET / CT is highly recommended to individuals with that concern in mind. See the Cancer Panel attachment for more information.

Digital Mammography

Most women should begin annual mammogram screenings for breast cancer at age 40, however screenings may be conducted sooner if family history indicates. Men are not excluded from needing mammograms.

Cardiac Stress Test

Measures the heart’s ability to respond to external stress in a controlled clinical environment and provides invaluable information to guard against heart attack.

Carotid Ultrasound

Evaluates blockages to blood flow (such as clots) narrowing of vessels (which may be caused by plaque) or tumors and congenital malformation.

 Venous Doppler

Multifaceted test to look at the veins. This exam is performed to evaluate varicose veins for blood clots. Also used to diagnose Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). The most serious complication of DVT is that the clot could dislodge and travel to the lungs, causing a Pulmonary Embolism (PE). Severe cases of PE can lead to collapse, abnormally low blood pressure, and sudden death.

Chest X-Rays

Performed to view the heart, airway and blood vessels for any abnormalities.

Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)

Measures and records electrical activity of the heart in exquisite detail. Interpretation may suggest a wide range of heart conditions which can vary from minor to life threatening.

Bone Mineral Density (BMD)

BMD is often used to diagnose osteoporosis and other conditions that cause bone loss. It can also assess an individual’s risk for developing fractures.

Total Body Fat Analysis, Body Mass Index (BMI)

Helps identify people whose weight increases and their risk for several conditions, including heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.

Whole Body Bone Scan

Detects tumors, cancer that has spread (metastasized) to the bone from a tumor that started in a different organ, such as the breast or prostate, fractures, infections and some abnormalities related to leukemia and lymphoma.
