Blood Tests and Imaging

Blood tests are a very common tool for checking for certain diseases and conditions. They also help check the function of organs and can be used as feedback to show how well treatments are working.

Medical imaging consists of the various techniques and processes used to create images of the human body (or parts and function thereof) for clinical (i.e.; medical procedures designed to reveal, diagnose or examine disease) among other purposes. As noted by the New England Journal of Medicine, medical imaging is one of the top developments that “changed the face of clinical medicine” during the last millennium. Today, imaging and radiation therapy are in fact cornerstones of quality care.

In order to diagnose the underlying cause of your health problem, Dr. Aidun uses a combination of blood tests as well as imaging studies such as ultrasound, CT, X-ray, DEXA and mammogram. In the event of highly complex cases, she will not hesitate to refer to an endocrinologist.
