Stroke and Osteoporosis Screening/Monitoring

Posted on:

Stroke screening is achieved by noninvasive ultrasound of the carotid arteries.  The procedure requires no special preparation and is performed in the office.

Osteoporosis ( low bone mass= increased risk of fracture) screening and monitoring of treatment response are performed with DEXA.  This in non-invasive office procedure takes 15-20 minutes and involves the patient lying on a comfortable bed.  Our DEXA machine not only measure bone mass at the hip and spine but also screens most of the vertebrae in the spine to detect if they are compressing or not.
