Palouse Medical takes great pride in the imaging services we are able to provide to patients– right here in our office! Our team of experienced and highly trained personnel, look forward to assisting you with the imaging that you require and provide you with the best experience possible. At Palouse Medical, we have an unwavering commitment to producing quality and accurate imaging for patients of all ages.
Not only is our x-ray department conveniently located, but allows providers the ability to get your results quickly and saves our patients time and money. When you choose to keep this service preformed in-house, we are able to offer imaging at a lower the cost than if you choose to have your imaging performed elsewhere. If you require a more complicated study or further testing beyond what we can offer in our office, we are happy to help coordinate services with outside providers to ensure you receive the care you need.
That is why our technicians are sensitive to your specific situation and extend personal support to patients by providing excellent service and ensuring that test results are provided to healthcare providers in a timely manner. After your imaging has been completed, it is sent to one of our board certified physicians to read and interpret. Having this service performed here in our office means that the results are ready almost immediately ready for your provider to continue working on your diagnosis or treatment plan, without you having to come back in or take additional time out of your schedule. You can rest assured when you have Palouse Medical as your health partner!
Osteoporosis is the most common of human bone diseases. It occurs when bone resorption exceeds bone formation, resulting in reduced bone strength, poor bone quality, and an increased risk of bone fracture. Palouse Medical provides access to the comprehensive testing necessary to reveal vertebral fractures, measure bone density, identifying and determining your risk for osteoporosis, and much more!
Identifying problems, determining risk and implementing therapeutic interventions are key to reversing the process of bone-loss. These scans become a valuable resource for your healthcare provider. Since results from your DXA scan will indicate if you are experiencing positive or negative changes in your bone density, it will allow your provider to better guide you along your personal care plan.
This advanced technology produces accurate bone density test results and utilizes a painless approach. Patients simply lay down on the exam table and work with the radiology technician to identify the correct positions needed for the imaging to be produced and presto, your exam is over! We have been providing this valuable testing to patients for over a decade and understand the importance of monitoring bone health. We recently upgraded to a machine that not only provides DXA bone densitometry, but also will provide instant vertebral assessment. We now are even able to offer body fat composition and analysis.
More services will be added to this list shortly. Look forward to learning more about our nerve conduction studies and ABI tests. Thank you and check back again soon!
