Here at Middle Country Medical Care, we carry out various medical procedures including Ultrasound, Spirometry, Nerve conduction study, and Glaucoma screening.
Ultrasound, also known as a sonogram is a simple and painless imaging technique that is far better than X-rays. Images of internal organs are produced very easily by this technique using high-frequency sound waves that have no ionizing radiation and no side effects.
Patients suffering from chronic lung conditions such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are diagnosed by Spirometry, which is a pulmonary exam.
Patients are made to breathe through a tube attached to the spirometry to determine the amount of air lungs can hold, and to measure the speed with which air can be exhaled.
Nerve Conduction Study
Patients suffering from nerve damage or inherent deficiency need to go for nerve conduction studies that help diagnosis nervous system issues.
This method is carried out with a device called oscilloscope and helps to determine nerve compression, substance abuse, or peripheral neuropathy. In this procedure, electrodes are attached on the body of patient that yields mild electrical impulses, which are recorded on charts.
