Fibroscan

A Fibroscan is a simple, painless and non-invasive procedure used to accurately assess the health of the liver. A Fibroscan like a specialized ultrasound measures liver fibrosis or “scarring”, which is essentially liver damage that is often the result of metabolic syndrome, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, chronic viral hepatitis or excess alcohol intake. A Fibroscan can identify the early signs of liver damage that would otherwise go unnoticed.

Miscellaneous Diagnostics

Echocardiogram

Cardiologist at General Practice performs your echocardiography in the office.

An echocardiogram, more commonly referred to as an ‘echo’, is an ultrasound scan of the heart. It is used to assess the structure and function of the heart and visualize the valves, heart chambers, heart muscle and blood flow to give a detailed picture of cardiac health. Complex measurements are made from the images obtained and depending on the reason for your referral, a more focused view of some areas may be performed. An echo is used in the diagnosis of many conditions and is also used to exclude others.

Electrocardiogram - ECG

An electrocardiogram, more commonly known as an ECG, is a quick and simple test which looks at the electrical activity of the heart. An ECG is used as a baseline test to look for evidence of cardiac damage, cardiac enlargement and/or a rhythm disturbance

Endoscope

Upper GI Endoscopy

We perform standard upper GI endoscopy procedures, to examine the gastrointestinal tract.  This Procedure is done to visualize the inside of Mouth, Esophagus, Stomach and upper part of Small Intestines.

Colonoscopy

Colonoscopies are commonly performed to diagnose abnormalities of the large intestine and to screen for colorectal cancer and colorectal polyps. The procedure is frequently performed in an outpatient setting with minimal discomfort and inconvenience. Because colonoscopy allows doctors to identify and remove certain types of colon polyps that may develop into cancer, colonoscopy can be a therapeutic and even life-saving procedure.

Spirometer

Spirometry is a common type of pulmonary function test. Another name for a pulmonary function test is a lung function test. A spirometry test measures the flow of air through your lungs and estimates the amount of air in your lungs. It also tells a healthcare provider how strong your lungs are and how well you breathe.

Spirometry is safe. A Doctor commonly order it to evaluate lung function.
