Advanced Eye Exams
Our non-mydriatic retinal cameras are patient-friendly, because they do not require bright lights or pupil dilation. The camera scans the retina to create 3D color images of the back of the eye, which are transmitted to a board-certified ophthalmologist to be interpreted the same day. This gives patients the comfort and convenience of having a simple, non-invasive test done right here in our clinic.
In-Clinic CT Scanner
For the convenience of our patients, our clinic is equipped with an ACR accredited GE LightSpeed VCT high image resolution 64-slice CT system. Now there is no need to send or transport patients to the hospital for a CT scan. Our scanner can provide detailed cross-sectional images and diagnostic information of nearly every part of the body. All scans are read daily by a Radiologist.
Ultrasound studies do not use radiation to produce images. Ultrasound images are produced with the use of sound waves. Our GE S7 with XD Clear ultrasound unit is used to detect abnormalities of the liver, gallbladder, kidneys, spleen, bladder, major vessels, and small parts of the body. These abnormalities can be detected in adults as well as pediatric patients.
Bone Density DEXA Scanner
Our GE Lunar Prodigy performs DEXA scan to accurately and painlessly measure bone density. A DEXA scan is also effective in tracking the effects of treatment for osteoporosis and other conditions that cause bone loss. This test can assess an individual’s risk for developing fractures.
