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.

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.

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.

ExpressCARE

When you can’t wait for an appointment, it's good to know you have a partner in convenient care. Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN) offers ExpressCARE walk-in care 365 days a year. Similar to an urgent care clinic, we offer high-quality medical care for common illnesses and minor injuries.

Holter Monitor

The Holter monitor is a type of portable electrocardiogram (ECG). It records the electrical activity of the heart continuously over 24 hours or longer while you are away from the doctor's office.

Lab Tests

Laboratory tests use blood, urine or other samples to understand what is happening inside your body or if treatments that have been prescribed to you are working. Tests can check for blood glucose (sugar) levels, liver or kidney function, hormone function, the flu and more. Lab tests are ordered by your physician or advanced practice clinician when needed.

Stress Echocardiogram

An echocardiogram is a noninvasive (the skin is not pierced) test used to see how well the heart is working. An exercise echocardiogram is done to assess the heart's response to stress or exercise and compare the results to when the heart is at rest.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound imaging is a test that uses sound waves to make detailed pictures of your organs.

X-Ray

X-rays are a type of radiation called electromagnetic waves. X-ray imaging creates pictures of the inside of your body. Common uses for X-ray imaging include detection of broken bones, dental x-rays, breast tumors (benign and cancerous), pneumonia in lungs and more.
