Bone Density Testing and Body Fat Analysis

Osteoporosis is a thinning of the bones where the bones become more fragile and are more likely to break. A bone density test determines whether you have osteoporosis or are at risk of osteoporosis. In the past, osteoporosis could only be detected after you broke a bone. A bone density test makes it possible to know your risk of breaking bones before it happens.

A bone density test uses X-rays to measure how much calcium and other bone minerals are packed into a segment of bone. There is growing evidence that clearly links body composition with health risks and the development of certain diseases.  New research indicates that fat loss, not weight loss, can extend human longevity.  By measuring body fat, a person's health status can be more accurately assessed and the effects of both dietary and physical activity programs better directed.

Stress Echocardiogram

The illustration shows a patient having a stress test. Electrodes are attached to the patient’s chest and connected to an EKG (electrocardiogram) machine. The EKG records the heart’s electrical activity. A blood pressure cuff is used to record the patient’s blood pressure while he walks on a treadmill.A stress echocardiogram is a very effective, noninvasive test that can help determine whether a patient has blockages in their coronary arteries. If there are blockages, it can determine the severity of the problem. The test is performed to see whether the heart muscle is getting enough blood flow and, therefore, enough oxygen when it is working hard. The purpose is to discover and potentially treat any blockage or disease before serious or life-threatening problems develop.

Sleep Study Analysis

The Watchpat 100 utilizes Peripheral Arterial Tone (PAT), a physiological signal that mirrors the changes in the automatic nervous system caused by respiratory disturbances during sleep. The proprietary, built-in algorithm analyzes the PAT signal to identify sleep apnea events with a high degree of specify and sensitivity. The PAT signal is acquired in the finger during the study. Parameters measured or derived during the night include oxygen saturation, heart rate, sleep and wake states, REM and non-REM sleep.

24-hour Holter Monitor

A Holter monitor is a machine that continuously records the heart's rhythms. The monitor is usually worn for 24 - 48 hours during normal activity. Electrodes are pasted onto the patient’s chest and attached to a small recording monitor. The monitor records the heart's electrical activity to detect if there have been any irregular heart rhythms. The DigiTrak monitor provides three channels EASI full 12 lead ECG analysis using only five electrodes. This is more comfortable for patients and provides less artifact. DigiTrak provides full disclosure; data is not compressed and all the beats are recorded and available for analysis. All recorders have pacemaker capability.

Pulmonary Function Test

The body plethysmograph provides the clinician with complete pulmonary function testing capacity to improve diagnostic capability and make testing accurate. The body plethysmograph is a pulmonary function system consisting of a cabinet in which the patient sits during the test and a computer that controls testing and data output. The system measures, spirometry, thoracic lung volumes and airways resistance. It also includes tests for diffusing capacity.

24-hour Blood Pressure Monitor

Oscar 2 Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitor (ABPM)

The Oscar 2™ system from SunTech Medical sets the standard in ABPM by meeting the highest clinical standards, optimizing patient comfort through innovation, and giving clinicians practical interpretive analysis and reporting tools.

The blood pressure monitor is a light; compact monitor that uses motion-tolerant algorithms to reduce re-inflates and failed readings. The auto-intelligent inflation pressure also reduces measurement time, promoting patient comfort by controlling cuff inflation.

Videonystagmography (VNG)

Videonystagmography is a test that evaluates a patient with vertigo or dizziness. This test determines if the symptoms are related to a problem with the balance system. This includes both central brain problems and peripheral ear problems.

Nerve Conduction Study

Nerve conduction studies are used mainly for evaluation of paresthesias, numbness, tingling, burning and/or weakness of the arms and legs. In a nerve conduction study, several flat metal disc electrodes are taped or pasted to the patient’s skin. A shock-emitting electrode is placed directly over the nerve to be studied. A recording electrode is placed over the muscles supplied by that nerve. Several brief electrical pulses are sent to the nerve. The patient will feel a brief, burning pain, a tingling sensation and a twitching of the muscle when the electrical pulse is applied. The measurements from the test are used in diagnosis of illnesses such as peripheral neuropathy, diabetic neuropathy, and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Digital Retinal Scanner

The EyeTel System is an imaging and diagnostic system, made up of the DigiScope device that takes high resolution retinal images and a telemedicine image analysis service. The screening function allows routine patients to be screened for age-related macular degeneration and optic disc abnormalities such as glaucoma. These images can be obtained in as little as three minutes, in most cases without dilation. To detect diabetic retinopathy, dilation is used in conjunction with the EyeTel System for any patient with diabetes.

Audiogram

The Auto Tymp is a versatile combination instrument that provides testing capability for tympanometry alone, tympanometry combined with screening acoustic reflex measurements, and screening audiometry.  It detects and documents otitis media, perforated tympanic membrane, patent tympanostomy tube, ossicular disruption, tympanosclerosis and cholesteatoma. In addition, the Auto Tymp provides a manual audiometry, giving users more options and more data, for more complete diagnoses and documentation.

PillCam Capsule Endoscopy

During the PillCam Capsule Endoscopy procedure, a patient swallows a vitamin-sized pill with a camera inside. The pill is transported smoothly and painlessly through the GI tract by the body’s own natural peristalsis. The PillCam video capsule transmits images of the GI tract to a data recorder that allows for imaging.
