Ultrasound imaging uses sound waves to help a physician see inside of a person’s body without invasive surgery or radiation. This is incredibly helpful in the diagnosis and treatment process. Ultrasound is also a useful way to examine inflammation in and around joints. Many types of arthritis – like osteoarthrtitis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and pseudo gout – are very clear to see when looking at a joint with an ultrasound machine. Sometimes, the diseases can’t be seen with normal examination.
In addition to the examination, ultrasound can help the doctor to remove (aspirate) fluid when a joint is inflamed. It is much easier to see exactly where the needle needs to go when using ultrasound. The applications for ultrasound are increasing, and Arthritis Specialty Center has been using this technology to safely and accurately diagnose problems with other structures such as tendons, bursa, and ligaments for over 5 years.
BONE DENSITY SCREENING
Bone mineral density (BMD) tests use a special machine to measure your bone density to see if you are at risk for osteoporosis. The test uses x-rays to measure the amount of calcium and other bone minerals that are contained in a given section of bone. Using this test, you can identify bones that are fragile, and possibly susceptible to breaking.
The test can be used on hips, the spine, forearms, wrists, fingers, or the heel. It is safe and painless, and a powerful tool in treatment of rheumatic disease.
Immunotherapy (also called infusion therapy) is when a patient receives medication through an intravenous drip. It is one of the more popular services that doctors offer, because a patient can sit in a comfortable chair and relax while the treatment occurs. Our immunotherapy centers were designed with patient comfort in mind, and our staff at Arthritis Specialty Center has been providing this service to Southeast Idaho for 10 years.
Comprehensive rheumatology labs in our CLIA certified Laboratory are offered in-house to diagnose and comprehensively treat a wide spectrum of rheumatic diseases.
