MR imaging use magnetic field dynamics to produce images. The images acquired have outstanding sensitivity for soft tissue and bone marrow pathologies. There are MRI techniques to illustrate vessel outline and intraluminal virtual flow i.e. MRA and MRV. In general, MRI takes time but here we have the latest software to help reduce it to the least, however quality of the images in order to accurately screen and diagnose is our first priority. Moreover, noisy environment is minimized to the lowest possible.
An evolution of x-ray certainly emits radiation which is well known to be carcinogenic. Despite the fact, in consideration to obtain benefit of, using standard lowest-dose protocol with our up-to-date machine justifies its use. This method can take cross-sectional images of your body giving various kinds of anatomic detail and measurement. Bone cortex and calcium are well seen.
Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body. Ultrasound is safe, noninvasive, and does not cause ionizing radiation. Besides diagnostic ultrasound which aims to evaluate diseases, ultrasound can be used to look for morphologic pathologies in a number of organs such as liver, gallbladder, spleen, kidneys, urinary bladder, thyroid gland, etc.
Digital Radiography (X-Ray)
This is the latest development of X-Ray technology to pick up 2D images. Although is it inferior to cross-sectional imaging like CT and MRI, this is still the best technique to characterize bone lesions and view organ or body alignment.
Mammography plays a main role in early detection of breast cancers because it can show changes in the breast up to two years before a patient or physician can feel them. Annual mammograms lead to early detection of breast cancers, when they are most curable. Screening mammography is recommended annually for women beginning at age 40 and may be earlier in women who have had breast cancer or those who are at increased risk due to a family history of breast or ovarian cancer.
Bone Densitometry (DEXA) for Bone Loss
This noninvasive low dose x-ray method is helpful and commonly used to indicate osteopenia. In central scans at spine and hip can tell if you have osteoporosis, taking place as you age with increased risk in female menopause and in many medical conditions, put you at risk for osteoporotic fractures. Medical treatment thus can prevent unnecessary bone fractures.
Assessment of cardiac rhythm detecting a number of cardiac abnormality
Anatomy and function of the heart and heart valves by transthoracic ultrasound
Exercise Stress Test (EST)
An Exercise Stress Test (EST) is primarily used to help determine if your heart receives enough oxygen and proper blood flow when it needs it most, such as when you are exercising. An EST may also be used to help determine your level of health, especially if you are starting a new exercise program by determining what level of exercise you can safely handle.
VO2Max is the maximum rate of oxygen consumption measured during incremental exercise. It tells us how well the heart and lungs work to deliver oxygen and energy to working muscles. Maximal oxygen consumption reflects cardiorespiratory fitness and is an important determinant of endurance capacity during prolonged exercise. Measuring VO2Max provides data used to customize training zones in order to train efficiently without getting injured or over-training.
Non-invasive cardiovascular screening to promote early detection and treatment of cardiovascular disease. ABI (Ankle Brachial index) and PWV (Pulse Wave Velocity) are indicators of arterial wall stiffness and the potential presence or degree of peripheral arterial disease (PAD).
