Tests & Treatments

  • Beck Depression Inventory
    To determine whether or not your sleep is affected by depression, this test measures the intensity and depth of your depression symptoms.

  • Bone Densitometry
    Typically done using X-rays, dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA or DXA) or by quantitative CT scanning using special software to determine bone density of the hip or spine.

  • DEXA Scan
    DEXA scans use special X-rays to measure how many grams of calcium and other bone minerals are packed into a segment of bone to detect osteoporosis.

  • Electrocardiogram
    An electrocardiogram is performed to assess the electrical activity of the heart to detect arrhythmias, coronary artery disease and heart muscle damage.

  • Hormone Replacement Therapy
    The Jefferson-Myrna Brind Center of Integrative Medicine is the Philadelphia region's leader in "bio-identical" hormone replacement therapy (HRT) for both women and men.

  • Mammogram
    Using digital technology, our physicians are able to obtain images of the breast that are of higher contrast and show finer detail to allow for more thorough evaluations.

  • Pap Test
    This procedure is done in your physician's office and can detect the presence of infection, inflammation, abnormal cells or cancer.

  • Thyroid Hormone Replacement Therapy
    If the thyroid gland is not producing enough hormones for your body's needs or the thyroid gland is no longer functioning normally due to a thyroidectomy, your physician may recommend thyroid hormone replacement therapy.
