EARLY INTERVENTION IS VITAL TO TREATING LIFE THREATENING CONDITIONS!
We are happy to offer a non invasive imaging using ultrasound technology to view vascular and visceral(organ) structures. This imaging procedure does not emit radiation and does not require any down time. OB/GYNs utilize this technology to view a developing fetus to see of any potential issues about the fetus development. It only makes sense that we use this technology to see inside our own bodies to get a better understanding about how we are aging.
Screenings such as these help doctors get a better picture about your state of health. Most European countries with socialized medicine utilize these types of screenings to help keep their health care cost down by identifying risk factors early and then addressing these concerns with less invasive medical intervention. Most doctors do not utilize this technology within the United States because insurance will not pay for procedure. We strongly encourage our patients to take the results of our screenings to their primary care physician to help their doctors get a bigger picture of a patient’s state of health.
Our clinic offers 2 different health screening, vascular and visceral.
Our vascular screening enables a patient to understand their risk for certain acute conditions such as stroke, myocardial infarction(heart attack) and embolism. Our non-invasive imaging uses ultrasound technology to view vascular structure to check for plaque build up within the vessel or vessel expansion.
Structures viewed include bilateral carotid arteries, abdominal aorta, popliteal fossa to screen for peripheral artery disease and femoral arteries in the groin region. In addition to these images, we also perform an interpretive EKG to check on the electrical conduction and rhythm of the heart.
Our imaging screening will view organs and looks for size, blood flow, surface composition and shape of the organ. Very often thyroid blood work will come back as normal, however, upon viewing the thyroid it is apparent with multiple nodules and enlarged size that the thyroid is not ideal in presentation. This type of information should prompt further evaluation from a health care professional.
Organs viewed include thyroid, liver, gall bladder, pancreas and bilateral kidneys.
Vascular and visceral screening on the same visit save $50. Both screenings are only $250.
These screenings are not intended to replace your regular office visits or recommended screenings as directed by your primary care physician. These screenings are not intended to diagnose, evaluate or treat any disease or health condition.
Expecting mothers imaging

Please feel free to invite family or friends to view the baby with this imaging session as our imaging suite can accommodate up to 10 people. Hear the babies heart beat and watch the baby moving inside mom’s tummy.
This imaging is not a screening and should be considered entertainment.
