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.
Nasal and sinus 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.
Diagnostic nasal endoscopy provides a safe and quick evaluation of the nasal passages using a nasal endoscope, a fiber-optic instrument used for examining the nasal cavity.
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.
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.
Accurate assessment of hearing (Audiometry) is vital to the evaluation of patients with suspected hearing loss or other otologic diseases. Audiometry often determines the source of the underlying problem.
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.
