Whether you’ve had a Pap smear before or this is your first time, you probably know that this screening tool is incredibly important for a woman’s health. A Pap smear allows our gynecologists to be able to analyze the cells of the cervix to look for possible signs of cancer or precancer. By simply scraping a few cells from the cervix during your annual exam we can catch cervical cancer early.
Our practice uses digital technology to perform all types of x-rays that identify and diagnose medical conditions. X-rays are most commonly used to view an area of pain or discomfort, monitor the progression of a disease and see the effect of a particular treatment.
Arlington Family Practice draws for labs in house for your convenience. Drawing in house allows for more quick and efficient results. We perform a variety of basic lab tests at our office including: strep tests, pregnancy tests, flu tests, A1c, RSV and UA. We will no longer be able to draw Quest labs for our Aetna patients in the office, you will need to go to a patient service center.
Bone Density Scanning (DEXA)
Bone Density Scanning, also known as a DEXA scan, uses dual energy x-ray technology to measure bone density, or the strength of your bones. The DEXA scan produces highly accurate measurements and is the only way to determine if you have osteoporosis or osteopenia. It’s a quick and painless procedure that requires you to lay on your back for areas of your body to be scanned.
Electrocardiograms check for issues with the electrical activity of your heart. Using electrodes that are placed on your skin, EKGs shows heart activity by tracing lines onto paper. The spikes and dips that are drawn are called waves. This test is a key component of the initial evaluation of a patient who is suspected to have a heart problem.
