Company description
Services: Thyroid/Neck Ultrasound: This simple test uses sound waves to image the thyroid. The sound waves are emitted from a small hand-held transducer which is passed over the thyroid. You will lie on your back with your neck hyperextended (with a pillow under your shoulders) as best as you can. A lubricant jelly is placed on the skin so that the sound waves transmit easier through the skin and into the thyroid and surrounding structures. This test is quick, accurate, painless, inexpensive, and completely safe. It usually takes about 10 minutes and the results can be known almost immediately. The only preparation needed for an ultrasound is to wear a low or open collar shirt (try to avoid turtlenecks) and remove any jewelry from your neck.
Thyroid fine needle aspiration (FNA) biopsy is the only non-surgical method which can differentiate malignant and benign nodules in most, but not all, cases. If a thyroid nodule is larger than 1 – 1.5 cm and/or has any worrisome characteristics, a fine needle aspirate biopsy is commonly recommended. In high risk patients (those who have had radiation exposure in the past or have a family member with thyroid cancer), nodules under 1 cm may also need a biopsy. Using ultrasound to guide the needle tip increases the quality of the biopsy specimens and allows the doctor to know where the needletip is at all times. Our laboratory is certified and approved by the U.S. Government under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act, for high complexity testing in Endocrine Chemistry, Routine Chemistry, and General Immunology.
Our full time laboratory director, Dr. Walter Szpunar, is a Bioanalyst Laboratory Manager certified by the American Board of Bioanalysis. Our quality assurance program includes successful completion of the Survey Program of the college of American pathologists three times a year. We offer blood tests to evaluate thyroid diseases, calcium and bone disorders, and diabetes.
