Our team at Transmed specializes in a variety of diagnostic ultrasound services, and each of our sonographers are highly trained and committed to providing quality, comfortable examinations for each patient.
Vascular ultrasound examinationshelp to identify blockages from plaque in the arteries and blood clots (Deep Vein Thrombosis, DVT) in veins. These can pose serious or potentially fatal health issues. Vascular ultrasounds can also be used to evaluate the valves within the veins of the legs. Vascular ultrasound is commonly referred to as a duplex or Doppler study. These are noninvasive procedures which are used to evaluate blood flow through arteries or veins throughout the body.
Cardiac ultrasound also referred to as an echocardiogram (echo), uses sound waves to create images of your heart. This is a common test which allows visualization of a heart’s beating and movement of blood flow through the heart. It also evaluates the muscles and valves of the heart. It is often ordered by your healthcare provider for the diagnosis or monitoring of heart disease.
Abdominal ultrasound examinations are used to look at organs in the abdomen. A healthcare provider may order a complete abdominal ultrasound or a limited abdominal ultrasound.These examinations can help identify a wide variety of health conditions related to organs such as the liver, gallbladder, pancreas, kidneys, and spleen. Major blood vessels in the abdomen can also be examined with ultrasound such as the abdominal aorta and the inferior vena cava, as well as blood vessels that lead to some of the abdominal organs.
OB examinations do not use ionizing radiation, therefore, they are the method of choice to monitor a woman who is pregnant and their unborn baby (fetus). This exam givesyour healthcare provider insight into the health, wellbeing,and development of your unborn baby.
Small parts ultrasound examinations are often used to evaluate many of the superficial organs of the body such as the thyroid, neck, breast, and testicles. It is also useful for evaluating soft tissue lumps, such as cysts, tumors, and foreign bodies. These ultrasound examinations can help detect potentially harmful health issues, and they can precipitate and inform successful treatment plans.
Vascular screening, sometimes referred to as as a stroke screening, is done as preventative care for the early detection of certain health issues, such as stroke, abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), peripheral arterial disease (PAD), and irregular heart rhythm (beat). Our vascular/stroke screenings have helped save lives by uncovering hidden health issues.
Sudden Cardiac Death Prevention (SCDP) Screening
SCDP screening, sometimes referred to as a heart screening, is intended for young people ages 11-34. This screening is used to evaluate undetected heart abnormalities that can lead to sudden cardiac death. Included in this screening is a limited echocardiogram (heart ultrasound), blood pressure from both arms, a 12 lead EKG, and a health history form. Our SCDPscreeningshave helped save lives by uncovering hidden health issues.
Transmed Comes To You
Long-term care and assisted living facilities provide a great service to seniors. When residents have to leave the comfort of their care center for outside appointments, it can be stressful, expensive, and time consuming, however. Transmed is able to come to your facility and perform the exam in the comfort and convenience of the patient’s room, eliminating the need for transportation to a medical facility.
