An ultrasound is a diagnostic imaging technique used for visualizing internal body structures including tendons, muscles, joints, vessels, and internal organs for possible pathology or lesions. Ultrasounds use high frequency sound waves (inaudible to humans) to produce images of structures within the body. An ultrasound may be used to provide images of the heart, liver, kidneys, gallbladder, eyes, and major blood vessels.

Our office currently works with Quest Diagnostics, allowing us to conduct in-house blood draws and other basic lab tests.
Electroencephalography, or EEG, is used to determine the electrical activity of the brain along the scalp. For clinical purposes, an EEG records the brain's spontaneous electrical activity over a short period of time (usually 20-40 minutes). EEGs are often used to diagnose epilepsy, sleep disorders, and encephalopathies.
