A urine drug test is the most commonly used test when job applicants or employees are screened for illegal drugs or alcohol use. Drugs that are screened for in a typical urine drug test for employment purposes include amphetamines, cocaine, marijuana,
ethamphetamines, opiates, nicotine, and alcohol.
If you're sexually active, particularly with multiple partners, you've probably heard the following advice many times: Use protection and get tested. This is important because a person can have a sexually transmitted disease without knowing it. In many cases, there aren't any signs or symptoms. In fact, that's why many experts prefer the term sexually transmitted infections (STIs), because you can have an infection without disease symptoms.
An X-ray machine produces a controlled beam of radiation, which is used to create an
image of the inside of your body. This beam is directed at the area being examined. After passing through the body, the beam falls on a piece of film or a special plate where it casts a type of shadow. Different tissues in the body block or absorb the radiation differently. Dense tissue, such as bone, blocks most of the radiation and appears white on the film. Soft tissue, such as muscle, blocks less radiation and appears darker on the film. Often multiple images are taken from different angles so a more complete view of the area is available. The images obtained during Xray exams may be viewed on film or put through a process called “digitizing” so that they can be viewed on a computer screen.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
which is a special test that produces clear, detailed pictures of the organs and structures in your body. The test uses a powerful magnetic field, radio waves, and a computer to create images in cross-section. An X-ray is good at showing bones, whereas an MRI is better at depicting structures made of soft tissue such as ligaments, cartilage, and organs, including your eyes, brain, and heart.
Which are used to check lumps that you or your health care provider have found in a physical exam. They can help determine which lumps are cancerous and which are
noncancerous (benign). In many cases, suspicious lumps are biopsied and removed, even when the lump appears noncancerous on a mammogram. Mammograms also can show a more exact location of a growth before you have surgery or a biopsy to remove it. Summit Medical Group also offers breast tomosynthesis, an advanced type of mammogram that offers a more detailed, three-dimensional image of the breast. This technology improves the detection and characterization of abnormal breast tissue, even for women with dense breasts.
Which is a safe and painless procedure to look at the organs inside the body. It uses high-frequency sound waves and their echoes to create video pictures of the organs. It is especially useful for examining soft tissue such as the kidneys, liver, and uterus. Soft tissue does not show up well on regular X-ray images.
The electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a diagnostic tool that is routinely used to
assess the electrical and muscular functions of the heart. The heart is a two stage electrical pump and the heart's electrical activity can be measured by electrodes placed on the skin.
Ear Wax Removal
Good intentions to keep ears clean may weaken the ability to hear. The ear is a delicate and intricate body part, including the skin of the ear canal and the eardrum.
Therefore, special care should be given to this part of the body. Start by discontinuing the habit of inserting cotton-tipped applicators or other objects into the ear canals.
Under ideal circumstances, the ear canals should never have to be cleaned. However, that isn’t always the case. The ears should be cleaned when enough earwax accumulates to cause
symptoms or to prevent a needed assessment of the ear by your doctor. This condition is call cerumen impaction, and may cause one or more of the following symptoms: Earache, fullness in the ear, or a sensation when the ear is plugged. Partial hearing loss, which may be progressive. Tinnitus: ringing, or noises in the ear. Itching, odor, or discharge.
