Bone Densitometry (DEXA)

A bone density test is used to measure bone mineral content and density. It may be done using X-rays, dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA or DXA), or a special computed tomography (CT) scan that uses computer software to determine bone density of the hip or spine.

CT (Computed Tomography) Scan

A computed tomography scan, or CT scan, is a type of X-ray that uses a computer to make cross-sectional images of your body. The dye injected to perform CT angiography is called a contrast material because it "lights up" blood vessels and tissues that are being studied.

Echocardiogram

An echocardiogram is a noninvasive (the skin is not pierced) procedure used to assess the heart's function and structures. During the procedure, a transducer (like a microphone) sends out ultrasonic sound waves at a frequency too high to be heard. When the transducer is placed on the chest at certain locations and angles, the ultrasonic sound waves move through the skin and other body tissues to the heart and blood vessel tissues, where the waves bounce or "echo" off of the structures. These sound waves are sent to a computer that can create moving images of the heart walls, blood vessels and valves.

Electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG)

An electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) is one of the simplest and fastest tests used to evaluate the heart. Electrodes (small, plastic patches) are placed at certain locations on the chest, arms and legs. When the electrodes are connected to the electrocardiogram machine by wires, the electrical activity of your heart is measured, interpreted and printed out for the doctor's information and further interpretation.

Exercise Treadmill Stress Test

An exercise stress test is done to assess the heart's response to stress or exercise. In this test, the ECG is recorded while you are exercising on a treadmill or stationary bike. An ECG tracing will be taken at certain points during the test to compare the effects of increasing stress on the heart.
