Prime Advanced Testing

  • Metabolic Testing: Method of measuring and estimating caloric burn rate energy expenditure.
  • B-Type Natriuretic Peptide (BNP) Blood Test: Measures BNP, a substance secreted by the heart in response to changes in pressure when heart failure develops or worsens.
  • Echocardiograms: Uses sound waves to produce images of the heart.
  • Ultrasound: Uses high frequency sound waves to produce dynamic images of organs, tissues, or blood flow within the body.
  • Stress Tests: A test used to detect abnormal changes in the heart while under the stress of a physical activity, usually a treadmill.
  • EndoPAT: Cardiovascular medicine that enables physicians to measure endothelial (a layer of cells that lines the inside of some body cavities, e.g. blood vessels) functions reliably, easily and non-invasively.
  • X-Rays: A form of invisible, high frequency electromagnetic radiation used to create images of the bone.
  • Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV): An electrical test used to determine the adequacy of the conduction of nerves used to detect nerve damage as in peripheral neuropathy or carpal tunnel syndrome.
  • Audiograms: After the hearing is tested, the results are plotted onto a chart to provide more detailed analysis of hearing ability and hearing loss.
  • Balance Testing: Tests for visual problems caused by glasses, reactions to drugs, arthritis, changes in blood pressure, infections, and delayed time periods between standing and walking.
  • 24 Hour Cardiac Holster Testing Monitor: A test to monitor how the heart responds to normal activity, a portable monitor is worn to record electrical signals from the heart over a 24 hour period.
  • ABI Testing (Peripheral Arterial Disease):Compares blood pressure in your ankle to blood pressure in your arm in order to show how well blood is flowing in your limbs. ABI Testing can show whether P.A.D. is affecting your limbs.
