On-site medical laboratory services are medical services provided by a laboratory that is located within a medical facility, such as a hospital or clinic. These laboratories are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and highly trained personnel who can perform a wide range of diagnostic tests on blood, urine, and other bodily fluids.
The advantage of having an on-site medical laboratory is that test results can be obtained quickly, often within minutes or hours, allowing doctors and other healthcare providers to make timely and accurate diagnoses and treatment decisions. This can be especially important in emergency situations where time is of the essence. Additionally, on-site medical laboratories may offer greater convenience for patients, as they can have their tests done at the same location as their medical appointment, avoiding the need for additional travel and appointments. Overall, on-site medical laboratory services are an important component of modern healthcare, providing critical diagnostic information that helps doctors and other healthcare providers deliver high-quality patient care.
At the American Medical Center (AMC), we offer a range of on-site diagnostic services to help diagnose and manage a variety of medical conditions. Our state-of-the-art facilities are equipped with advanced diagnostic equipment and staffed by highly trained healthcare professionals to ensure that our patients receive accurate and timely diagnostic results.
One of the diagnostic services we offer is electrocardiogram (ECG) testing. This non-invasive test measures the electrical activity of the heart and is used to diagnose various heart conditions such as arrhythmias, heart attacks, and other heart-related issues. We also offer 24-hour ECG monitoring, which involves wearing a portable ECG device for a full day to monitor the heart's electrical activity continuously.
Another on-site diagnostic service we provide is lung function testing. This test helps diagnose and manage respiratory conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and other lung-related issues. It involves breathing into a device that measures various lung function parameters, such as how much air the lungs can hold and how quickly air can be exhaled.
We also offer 24-hour blood pressure monitoring to diagnose and manage hypertension. This test involves wearing a portable blood pressure monitor for a full day to monitor blood pressure readings continuously.
Finally, we offer home sleep apnea testing, which allows patients to take a sleep apnea test in the comfort of their own home. This diagnostic test helps diagnose sleep apnea, a common sleep disorder that can cause significant health problems if left untreated.
We are proud to offer state-of-the-art on-site imaging services to help diagnose and treat a variety of medical conditions. Our imaging department is staffed by experienced radiologists and technologists who use the latest technology to provide our patients with accurate and timely diagnostic results. We offer a range of imaging services, including specialist ultrasound, MRI, CT, and X-ray.
Our ultrasound service is particularly special as it is led by Dr. B. Asherl, a specialist in ultrasound imaging. Using high-frequency sound waves, ultrasound produces images of organs, tissues, and blood vessels in the body, making it a valuable tool for diagnosing conditions related to the abdomen, pelvis, and reproductive organs. With Dr. Asherl's expertise, we can provide our patients with the highest level of care and accurate diagnoses. Our on-site ultrasound service is just one of the many ways we strive to provide our patients with exceptional medical care.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to produce detailed images of the inside of the body. This diagnostic test is particularly useful for examining soft tissues, such as the brain, spinal cord, and joints.
Computed Tomography uses X-rays and computer technology to produce detailed cross-sectional images of the body. This diagnostic test is particularly useful for examining internal organs and detecting various medical conditions, such as tumors, infections, and fractures.
By using a low dose of ionizing radiation we can produce images of the inside of the body. This diagnostic test is particularly useful for detecting fractures, pneumonia, and other medical conditions that affect bones and tissues.
