The Importance of Diagnostic Testing

At Summit Integrated Health, we recognize the importance of diagnostic testing in identifying the root cause of various medical conditions. We offer various diagnostic imaging services, including on-site digital X-rays and ultrasound imaging, to help our patients receive accurate and efficient diagnoses. These imaging procedures are essential for identifying soft and hard tissue conditions and determining the most effective treatment plan for each patient’s needs.

Our in-house imaging services provide our patients with the convenience of not going to an external imaging center or hospital, saving them time and money. Furthermore, since our diagnostic imaging is digital, our medical team can review and analyze the results immediately, leading to faster treatment and quicker relief from pain and discomfort. Whether you’re dealing with an acute injury, chronic pain, or other medical condition, our diagnostic imaging services can help.

Digital X-Rays

At Summit Integrated Health, we utilize state-of-the-art digital x-ray technology to provide our patients with accurate and efficient diagnostic imaging services. Unlike traditional x-rays that use photographic film, our digital radiography uses digital sensors to produce high-quality images with nearly instant results. This technology reduces patient exposure to ionizing radiation by up to 80% while allowing for digital image enhancement after processing.

Our medical professionals recommend digital x-rays for almost all patients to check for fractures, breaks, disc issues, scoliosis, tumors, and other abnormalities before providing health care. This is especially important before providing chiropractic care but is also crucial for physical therapy and other medical services. Our digital x-ray technology helps us diagnose and treat our patients more effectively, leading to faster recovery and improved overall health.

Conditions Diagnosed:

  • Fractures and dislocations
  • Osteoporosis and bone density issues
  • Arthritis and joint degeneration
  • Alignment issues, such as scoliosis and kyphosis
  • Dental and jaw issues, including impacted teeth and TMJ disorders
  • Tumors and other abnormal growths

Diagnostic Ultrasound

At Summit Integrated Health, we use diagnostic ultrasound, also known as diagnostic medical sonography, as a non-invasive imaging method to produce detailed images of the inside of the body. Our advanced handheld ultrasound technology uses high-frequency sound waves to create images of the body’s internal structures, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, internal organs, blood vessels, and more.

One of the key benefits of diagnostic ultrasound is its safety. Unlike other imaging methods that use radiation, ultrasound uses only sound waves and is non-invasive, making it a safe and effective imaging option for patients of all ages. Diagnostic ultrasound provides valuable information for our medical team in diagnosing and treating various medical conditions and diseases, including sprains, strains, tears, and soft tissue problems not visible on x-rays.

Conditions Diagnosed:

  • Soft tissue injuries, such as sprains, strains, and tears
  • Joint inflammation, such as in arthritis
    Tendinitis and other tendon abnormalities
  • Muscle abnormalities, including tears and atrophy
  • Blood clots and circulation issues
  • Gallbladder and liver conditions
  • Kidney and bladder abnormalities
  • Thyroid conditions, such as nodules and tumors
  • Abdominal and pelvic issues, including cysts, tumors, and other abnormalities
