It is common in post-menopausal women and in some other medical conditions. A bone density measurement is similar to an x-ray and takes from 5-20 minutes. It is simple, safe, painless, and non-invasive. This measurement helps your physician to determine if you need to take certain steps to protect your bone health.

Nerve conduction studies, which assist in the diagnosis of carpal tunnel and other nervous system disorders, are another service offered by FamilyCare Medical Group. These are performed by a board certified electrophysiologist and are offered at several of our locations.

Echocardiograms

An echocardiogram is a test used in the diagnosis of heart problems such as heart murmurs or heart palpitations. A sonogram or a picture of the heart is taken and allows your physician to see how your heart is beating and pumping blood. This helps in the identification of any abnormalities in the heart muscle and valves.
