Imaging Modalities


X-Rays - We are able to produce xrays immediately during your office visit; including chest xrays, abdominal xrays, and xrays of all extremities and bones. Xrays allows us to more adequately diagnose what ails you and provide you with more specific treatment. Please feel free to contact us if you are in need of radiological imaging.

 

 

 

Echocardiograms - We are specialized in heart disease and are equipped to perform echocardiograms in order to assess heart and valvular function. Echocardiograms are essentially ultrasound of the heart. If you have a heart condition, or suffer from congestive heart failure, it is essential that an echocardiogram be performed to establish your baseline heart function. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have been diagnosed with a heart condition, in order to evaluate your heart function.

 

 

Carotid Dopplers - Dizzines can be caused by a multitude of factors, however a very common and significant cause includes blockage of the carotid arteries, which are the arteries supplying the brain. If you have had a stroke or symptoms similar to a stroke, including dizziness, a carotid doppler should be perfomed in order to determine whether these arteries are the source of these symptoms. Diagnosing Carotid Artery Disease allows us to better treat circulatory disease that can also be found in the rest of the body. Please be aware that confusion, sudden slurred speech, or weakness or an extremity (arm or leg) is an emergent situation and you should go to the nearest hospital or contact your primary care physician immediately.

 

Venous & Arterial Dopplers - Doppler studies are ultrasound of the circulatory system of the upper or lower extremities. Pain in the extremities can be due to poor circulation in the arterial system. Swelling in the lower extremities can be caused by many factors however a very dagnerous cause can be a clot in the leg known as a deep venous thrombosis and should be evaluated as soon as possible. Please contact us if you are experiencing any of the above.

 

 

Urodynamics - Urinary symptoms, including urinating often, difficulty with urine flow, accidents that are unintended and embarrassing, can be caused by many factors such as infection, anatomic aberrancies or prostate disease. We have the ability to assess these problems with testing that allows us to better diagnose the aberrancy that is causing the aforementioned symptoms and thus better treat the disease. If you are having any urinary symptoms, especially those already mentioned, please do not hesitate to contact us.
