Breast Thermography

Infrared Breast Thermography is another diagnostic tool we offer for our Greenville, Spartanburg, and Anderson area patients. It is a safe, non-ionizing, non-contact study of breast skin temperature that is useful as a breast health risk assessment.  It has particular utility in monitoring the effects of breast hormone therapy.  It is also useful as in the detection of physiologic changes such as hormonal imbalance, lymphatic edema, ductal congestion, chest wall pain syndromes,  and angiogenesis.  Internationally peer reviewed Guidelines for Breast Thermography have been developed by the American Academy of Thermology in 2012 and restated in 2013.  These guidelines support breast thermal imaging as a breast risk assessment, not unlike high blood pressure screening for vascular disease.

Musculoskeletal Ultrasonography

Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Ultrasonography is a useful way to detect problems for muscle, tendon and ligament pain. Ultrasound images are captured in real time, so they can often show movement, function and anatomy, further enabling the diagnoses of a variety of musculoskeletal conditions and assessment for damage to soft tissues after an injury or illness.

Shoulder Diagnostic

Ultrasonography involves the sending of sound waves through the body. Those sound waves are reflected off the internal tissues. Special instruments interpret the reflections and create an image of anatomic parts. No ionizing radiation (x-ray) is involved in ultrasound imaging.
