Diagnostic Testing Q & A

What is diagnostic testing?

Diagnostic testing includes a variety of procedures and tests that help the caring team at Calvary Medical Clinic determine the underlying cause of your symptoms. These tests provide valuable information that can detect, confirm, or rule out medical conditions. For your convenience, the team at Calvary Medical Clinic offers many diagnostic tests right in their office. 

What are common diagnostic tests?

Depending on your specific needs, the team at Calvary Medical Clinic may recommend one or more of the following in-office diagnostic tests:

Bone density test

A bone density test is a type of X-ray that measures how strong your bones are. This test screens for osteoporosis. 

Ankle-brachial index

The ankle-brachial index involves comparing the blood pressure measurement at your ankle with the blood pressure measurement at your arm. This is a quick and simple way to check for peripheral artery disease (PAD).

Pulmonary function tests

Pulmonary function tests measure how well your lungs are working. These noninvasive tests help the team at Calvary Medical Clinic diagnose breathing conditions, including asthma. 

ANSAR testing

ANSAR testing is a noninvasive procedure that evaluates how well your autonomic nervous system is functioning. Your autonomic nervous system controls involuntary functions, such as heart rate and digestion.

Videonystagmography (VNG)

VNG tests measure involuntary eye movements to determine whether there's a problem with your vestibular system, or the part of your brain that controls balance. 

Electrocardiogram (EKG)

An EKG is a painless procedure that records the electrical activity of your heart. The team at Calvary Medical Clinic uses EKGs to diagnose and monitor various heart conditions, including arrhythmia. 

Ultrasound

Ultrasound is a noninvasive test that uses sound waves that pass through your skin to produce images of your internal organs. The team at Calvary Medical Clinic uses 2D and 3D ultrasounds to monitor fetal development in pregnant women and diagnose problems in men and women who aren’t pregnant. 

Other tests

They also provide heating tests and a variety of in-office lab testing, including urinalysis, pregnancy tests, and rapid strep tests. 

When would I need diagnostic testing?

Adults, children, and infants need different diagnostic tests for a wide variety of reasons. Your provider at Calvary Medical Clinic may recommend certain tests to diagnose or rule out causes of your symptoms. Other times, diagnostic testing may be part of your preventive care.
