In-Office Non-Invasive Testing

 

  • Ambulatory Blood Pressure Montior - Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) uses a special blood pressure cuff and portable recording device to measure blood pressures over a 24 hour period. Our trained medical assistant hooks up the monitor and provides instructions for wearing the device and returning it to our office. Blood pressure is recorded periodically and without warning to reduce white coat hypertension (blood pressure elevated due to nervousness by being in a clinical setting). It is also useful in identifying important conditions including blood pressure variability (changes in blood pressure not detected in the office setting) and nocturnal blood pressure surges or dips (rise or drop in blood pressure at night while sleeping) that can be related to cardiac or sleep disorders. The test is painless and silent. In essence, it increases the ability to characterize blood pressure issues better than a single reading in the doctor's office. It can be worn during light exercise, but not in a bath or shower.

  • 24-hour EKG Monitor

  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurism Screen

  • Arterial Duplex

  • Body Composition Analysis - We perform routine body composition analysis by impedance method. It is most accurate in the morning while fasting, with no caffeine ingested. It calculates body mass index (BMI), basal metabolic rate (BMR), lean body mass, and body fat. It is reproducible and is a good method for following an individual's health over time. It is simple, painless, and takes about 2 minutes.

  • Bone Density

  • Carotid Duplex

  • Diagnostic Ultrasound - We perform diagnostic ultrasound in our office by a skilled licensed technician. Options for study include abdomen (gallbladder, liver, pancreas), pelvis, kidney, thyroid, abdominal aorta (aneurism screen), renal duplex (kidney artery), venous duplex (vein study for clots and valve competency), and arterial duplex (arterial vascular disease). A preliminary study is presented to patients at the time of the study, and a final report s generated by a radiologist with ultrasound expertise.

  • Diagnostic X-Ray

  • Echocardiogram

  • EKG

  • Event Monitor - A Holter monitor is a portable device that records all heartbeats in a 24 hour period. It is most useful for detecting and identifying abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias) and identifying abnormalities that might account for symptoms (such as dizziness, palpitations, fainting). Electrical recording leads are placed on the chest wall and attached to a small recording / data storage device. When it is activated, it begins recording all heart beats until it is turned off, usually 24 hours later. The recording device has a button that the patient can push during events or symptoms. The patient also keeps a log of activities to correlate with the observed electrical conductance of the heart.
