Ultrasounds are a useful way of examining internal organs such as vessels, organs, and tissues. An ultrasound will help diagnose the cause of pain, swelling, and infection. By using sound waves, an ultrasound will produce pictures of the inside of the body. Ultrasound imagining is a noninvasive medical test that will help your physician diagnose and treat medical conditions.
E.M.G otherwise known as Electromyography measures nerve and muscle function. EMG testing can provide your doctor with information about the extent of nerve and muscle injury. It can also determine the location of injury and severity of damage. Nerves will be simulated at different points by a small electrical shock that will analyze their function. A very fine needle will also pick up normal and abnormal electrical signs given off by muscles. E.M.G testing can therefore help diagnose carpal tunnel, pinched nerve, sciatica, muscle diseases,and muscular dystrophy.
A Nerve conduction test can help detect signs of nerve injury. This is an electrical test that determines the adequecy of the conduction of nerve impulses as it moves down the nerve. If you experience numbness, tingling, or burning sensations your physician might have requested a Nerve Conduction test. This test can diagnose nerve damage and destruction.
A Vascular Doppler is an ultrasound that measures the amount of blood flow through your arteries and veins. This test can detect abnormal blood flow within an artery or blood vessel. A Vascular Doppler will look to see if there are any clots, narrowing, or closures of the arteries. A Vascular Doppler can estimate how fast blood flows by measuring the rate of change in its frequency. This test may also help your doctor monitor certain treatments to your veins and arteries.
