Lab & Diagnostic Testing

Diagnostic Testing

X-rays

An X-ray machine takes pictures of your bones and the surrounding soft tissues. This digital snapshot is sent to a computer so your provider can review the image with you in your treatment room. Your provider may use an X-ray to help diagnose a fracture, break or sprain of any of your extremities

EKGs

An EKG (electrocardiogram) is a diagnostic test that looks at the heart. The technician will place electrodes on your chest, arms and legs. These electrodes send impulses back to a monitor, which then prints out a "snapshot" of your heart. EKGs look at how strong your heart is beating, if it has an irregular rhythm and how well the blood is traveling through your heart. All of this data gives your provider a deeper understanding of how well your heart is working. EKGs are fast and painless.
