Allergy Testing

Allergy Testing is used to help identify the specific allergens that are causing the allergic symptoms by measuring how a person reacts to specific allergens such as food, tree pollen, pet dander, or mold. A “positive” allergy test means that a person has a specific allergic antibody to the substance tested. This often means that the person is allergic to the substance, and therefore may experience symptoms when exposed to the allergen.

Sinus CT Imaging

One of the best ways to diagnose sinus problems is with a CT (computed tomography) scan, also known as a CAT scan, a noninvasive, painless medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat various medical conditions. CT scanners create 3 dimensional x-ray images of the sinus anatomy and thus provide physicians with valuable information for an accurate diagnosis.

Nasal and Laryngeal Endoscopy

Diagnostic endoscopy provides a safe and quick evaluation of the nasal passages and voice box (larynx) using a flexible endoscope, a fiber-optic instrument used for examining the upper airway. The endoscope is slender, only 2.7-4.0 mm in diameter, and is passed easily through the nostril to allow a detailed examination of the nasal cavity, sinuses and the larynx.

Fine Needle Aspiration (FNA) Biopsy

Fine Needle Aspiration is a biopsy used to determine whether a growth is cancerous. The biopsy samples the cells in the area of concern, which are then sent to a pathologist for analysis. During the procedure, a thin needle is inserted through the skin into the tumor to collect a sample of cells. Multiple samples from a single tumor are usually taken to ensure an accurate analysis.

Thyroid Ultrasound

A Thyroid Ultrasound is a simple and safe method to examine the Thyroid Gland. The Ultrasound machine uses high-frequency sound waves, rather than radiation, taken by a hand-held instrument maneuvered over the skin to develop a picture of the Thyroid Gland on a monitor.

Cultures

Cultures are used to identify the organism causing the infection. Cultures are simple, quick and safe. Cultures are frequently used when infections treated with the appropriate antibiotics have not completely resolved. Cultures are becoming more important with the emergence of bacteria resistant to common antibiotics.
