Types of Imaging

We offer a wide variety of imaging tests at Grand Forks Clinic.

CT Scans

Computed tomography (CT) scans utilize advanced imaging technology to provide detailed cross-sectional images of various parts of the body. These scans play a crucial role in diagnosing and monitoring a wide range of medical conditions.

CT scan images offer detailed information that surpasses the capabilities of X-rays, enabling our medical professionals to make precise diagnoses and develop effective treatment plans.

Echocardiogram

An echocardiogram is a widely used non-invasive diagnostic test that uses sound waves to produce detailed images of the heart. The test can provide valuable information about blood flow through the heart and the condition of the heart valves and helps identify various heart conditions that may be affecting your health.

The results of an echocardiogram play a crucial role in guiding healthcare providers in making accurate diagnoses, determining appropriate treatment plans, and monitoring the progress of heart conditions.

At Grand Forks Clinic, we offer state-of-the-art echocardiogram services performed by experienced healthcare professionals. Our goal is to provide you with a thorough evaluation of your heart health, delivering precise and personalized care.

MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)

An MRI is a scan test that uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to generate clear images inside your body. They are especially useful to diagnose and evaluate various conditions by examining soft tissues, such as organs, muscles, and joints. It is completely painless and does not require radiation to produce these detailed images.

At Grand Forks Clinic, our goal is to offer accurate diagnoses and timely results to help you regain your well-being. All imaging services provided at our facilities use cutting-edge technology and equipment to achieve this. 

Our team will provide you with high-quality diagnostic and monitoring services while always ensuring your safety.

Ultrasounds

Ultrasound imaging, also known as sonography, uses high-frequency sound waves to create real-time images of your body's organs, tissues, and blood vessels. It is commonly used to examine the abdomen, pelvis, heart, blood vessels, and developing fetus during pregnancy.

X-rays

X-rays use low doses of radiation to produce images of the inside of your body. They are commonly used to visualize bones, detect fractures, and spot lung infections and certain tumors. 

X-rays are a quick and painless imaging method that can help diagnose a variety of conditions.

DEXA

Dual-Energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DEXA) is a specialized type of X-ray that measures bone mineral density. It is primarily used to diagnose osteoporosis and assess the risk of fractures. 

DEXA scans are quick, non-invasive, and provide valuable information about your bone health.

3D Mammography

Also known as digital breast tomosynthesis, 3D mammography is an advanced imaging technique used for breast cancer screening and detection. The tomosynthesis (or 3D mammography) produces multiple images of the breast from different angles, allowing for a more detailed and accurate assessment of breast tissue.

3D mammography can detect breast abnormalities at an early stage, improving the chances of successful treatment.

Laboratory Services

Hematology and chemistry are two important branches of laboratory medicine that analyze blood samples to assess your overall health. They can be an effective means to diagnose a variety of medical conditions.

Our on-site labs mean shorter wait times. You can get faster results with fewer appointments, saving you time and allowing for better coordination with your primary care provider

Hematology Tests

Hematology tests are blood tests used to study blood and related disorders. Hematologists and hematopathologists are highly trained healthcare providers who specialize in diseases of the blood and blood components. 

Blood components include blood and bone marrow cells. These tests can help diagnose conditions such as anemia, infection, hemophilia, blood-clotting disorders, and leukemia.

Common hematology tests include:

  • Complete Blood Count (CBC): It provides information about the number and types of blood cells present in your blood, including red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. It helps in diagnosing conditions such as anemia, infections, and blood cancers.
  • Coagulation Studies: These tests assess the blood's ability to clot properly. They are useful in diagnosing bleeding disorders and monitoring the effectiveness of anticoagulant therapy.

Blood Chemistry Tests

Chemistry-based laboratory services focus on the analysis of blood chemistry to assess organ function, screen for diseases, and monitor treatment effectiveness. 

Common blood chemistry tests include:

  • Basic Metabolic Panel (BMP): It measures the levels of electrolytes (sodium, potassium, chloride), glucose, blood urea nitrogen (BUN), creatinine, and sometimes calcium. BMP helps evaluate kidney function, electrolyte balance, and blood sugar levels.
  • Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP): CMP includes all the tests in the BMP along with additional tests to assess liver function (such as liver enzymes, bilirubin, and albumin) and total protein levels.
  • Lipid Profile: This test measures cholesterol and triglyceride levels in the blood. It helps evaluate the risk of developing cardiovascular diseases.
  • Liver Function Tests (LFTs): These tests measure various enzymes and proteins produced by the liver. LFTs help diagnose liver diseases and monitor their progression.
  • Hormone Assays: These tests measure the levels of hormones in the blood, such as thyroid hormones, reproductive hormones (estrogen, testosterone), or adrenal hormones (cortisol, aldosterone). They aid in diagnosing hormonal imbalances and related conditions.
  • Hemoglobin A1c: Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) testing is a crucial tool in managing diabetes. It provides a three-month average of blood sugar levels and helps healthcare providers assess the effectiveness of diabetes treatment plans.
  • PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen): The PSA test is an essential tool for monitoring prostate health in men. Elevated PSA levels can be indicative of prostate conditions, including prostate cancer.
  • Vitamin D Levels: Testing for Vitamin D levels is important for assessing bone health and overall well-being. Adequate Vitamin D is necessary for calcium absorption and plays a vital role in various bodily functions.
  • Urine Tests: Urine tests can provide valuable information about kidney function, urinary tract health, and certain metabolic disorders. They are often used for diagnostic purposes and to monitor treatment progress.
  • BNP (B-natriuretic peptide): BNP testing is used to assess heart function, specifically for diagnosing and monitoring congestive heart failure (CHF). Elevated BNP levels can indicate heart stress or dysfunction.
