At HealthNow Primary & Urgent Care Clinics, we care about our patients; your health and wellness for life are our highest priority. Some lab tests that are performed at HealthNow as a part of your diagnostic workup measure your general health, such as a CMP (Comprehensive Metabolic Panel), CBC (Complete Blood Count), or Lipid Profile (Cholesterol); others may be more specialized, such as a PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen), TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone), or comprehensive STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease) testing.
At HealthNow, onsite x-rays are especially useful in the detection of pathology of the skeletal system (bones), but are also useful for detecting some disease processes in soft tissue. The common chest x-ray can be used to identify lung diseases such as pneumonia, lung cancer, and pulmonary edema, while the abdominal x-ray can detect intestinal obstruction, free air (from visceral perforations), and free fluid. X-rays may also be used to detect pathology such as gallstones or kidney stones, which are often visible.
