List of Preventative Tests we offer
Heart Scan (Calcium Score)
Calcium Score Testing is an invaluable tool for the early detection of heart disease. This test allows us to find calcium in the coronary arteries which supply blood to the heart. The coronary arteries are not supposed to contain calcium. Calcium when found in the coronary arteries is a early sign of coronary artery disease. Once we diagnose signs of coronary artery disease we can start the process of reverting such risks and risk factors.
Nuclear Stress Test (Thallium)
Blood flow to your heart muscle at rest and during exercise can be measured by performing a Nuclear Stress Test or a Thallium Scan. A Nuclear Thallium scan provides clear images in addition to electrocardiograms of the heart and its function. The process includes a radioactive substance that shows up in the coronary arteries and heart muscle. The Thallium Stress Test can further provide information in regards to coronary artery disease and heart function.
Treadmill Cardiac Test
A treadmill cardiac stress test entails stressing of the heart by running on a treadmill. You will be hooked up to a machine by electrodes which measure and record your heart rhythm while being stressed. Your primary care physician will use this information to diagnose signs of heart disease or coronary artery disease. This test can be used as a screening test to diagnose heart disease prior to signs and symptoms.
Berkeley Heart Lab
The Berkeley Heart Lab test measures discriminating increments in lipoproteins with statistical certainty. The lab also analyzes cardiovascular risk markers, which addition of cholesterol levels and genetics to assess cardiovascular risk. This precision allows for the monitoring of changes in a patient’s risk over time, giving clinicians insight to adjust treatment plans accordingly.
Screening Ultrasound Testing
Our state of the art ultrasound machine is used to screen for a variety of illnesses such as heart disease, carotid stenosis, plaques in the carotid arteries, thyroid nodules and thyroid abnormalities, abdominal and aortic aneurysms, heart function, liver nodules, illnesses of the gallbladder and kidneys and more. Through our ultrasound screening tests we have been able to diagnose cancer, heart disease and risk of strokes prior to our patients developing any symptoms or signs.
Colonoscopy & Virtual Colonoscopy
A colonoscopy provides physicians with view of your intestines. The test is performed with a flexible tube that has a camera on it, so it can take pictures of the inside of your colon and rectum. It also has the ability to snip off polyps and tissue samples. Virtual colonoscopy can be performed via a pill endoscopy or a CAT Scanner.

Whole Body CT scans allow us to look at each cross section of your body for abnormalities such as tissue growth ( as seen in cancer), vascular abnormalities, infection and more. The body scan is very quick and cann screen for the presence of heart disease, certain cancers, as well as other abnormalities.
A lung scan scans different image of the lung. The lung scan (CT chest) can help identify early lung cancer, effects of smoking and other lung diseases. Most patients with a history of smoking are recommended to take this test.
Pulmonary Function Test
Pulmonary Function Testing measures how well the lungs take in and release air and move oxygen into the blood stream. This type of testing is can diagnose different types of lung disease such as COPD, asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema. Patients with shortness of breath or history of smoking are advised to take advantage of this test. During the test, the patient breathes through the mouth into tube connected to a machine that measures the lung function.
The electrocardiogram measures the electrical activity of the heart in detail and records the data to be interpreted and reviewed by your physician. Interpretation of the data recorded is then used to diagnose a variety of different illnesses and conditions of the heart. Early detection of these conditions is vital in keeping you healthy. An EKG is performed in several minutes while you lay comfortably.
Abdominal Aortic Ultrasound
An abdominal aortic ultrasound is used as a very effective screening test to rule out aortic aneurysms of the abdominal aorta. This non-invasive test uses sound waves to take an image of the aorta. Aneurysms of the aorta can rupture with very detrimental effects. This test is conducted while you lay on an exam table.
A mammogram is routinely used to screen for breast cancer. Worldwide breast cancer accounts for 23% percentage of all cancers.Mammograms are quick and easy and can quickly diagnose breast cancer in females without any signs or symptoms.
Bone Density Test (women)
Bone density testing is used to diagnose osteoporosis and osteopenia ( thinning of the bones). This test can quickly diagnose your risk of osteoporosis before any damage or fractures of your bones incur. A bone densitometer uses X-rays to measure the density of the bones at multiple locations. Once osteopenia or osteoporosis is diagnosed, your physician can begin treatments to strengthen your bone health.
Prostate Exam (men)
A prostate examination is performed by palpating the prostate through the rectum. During a prostate exam, your physician will feel the prostate with a lubricated and gloved index finger. The prostate exam is performed to check the prostate for bumps, hard spots, growths and other abnormalities.
