Bone Density Testing (DXA, DEXA)
A dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is a means of measuring bone mineral density which helps measure bone loss. This service is used to diagnose osteoporosis and to assess an individual's risk for developing fractures. DXA is a simple, accurate and non-invasive means to detecting osteoporosis.
Clinical Research and Trials
Our providers work closely with medical researchers to allow patients access to new and emerging therapies through clinical trials. In addition to physicians, our research division consists of experienced clinical researchers and assistants that are committed to the investigation of new ways to treat auto-immune diseases.
Our ultrasound services allow our physicians to observe muscles, tendons, joint space, and soft tissues to look for early signs of arthritis or other diseases in the joints, cartilage, and soft tissues. Ultrasound also enhances the accuracy of injections and improves patient outcomes through a more precise and effective delivery.
