Tests & Treatments

  • CT Scan
    A series of X-rays that can be used to visualize nearly all parts of the body in 3-D is known as a CT scan.

  • ECMO (Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation)
    Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation provides prolonged respiratory and cardiac support to patients whose lungs and heart are so severely diseased or damaged that they cannot normally function on their own.

  • Liver Dialysis
    Today, there is an option to prolong your life during the search for a new liver — liver dialysis.

  • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
    Our specialists often use advanced MRI technology to obtain visual detail of organs and tissues to help detect many conditions.

  • Pulmonary Function Tests (PFTs)
    By assessing lung volumes, capacities, rates of flow and gas exchange, PFTs provide information that, when evaluated by your physician, can help diagnosis certain lung disorders.

  • Ultrasound
    Ultrasounds vary by condition, but consist of high-frequency sound waves to look at organs and structures inside the body.
