The test allows the doctor to get an image of the heart without inserting anything inside the body.

Calcium Calcium is one of the most important minerals in your body. It is essential for the proper functioning of muscles, nerves, and the heart and is required in blood clotting and in formation of bones.

Creatinine Creatinine is a waste product produced in the body, and is processed by the kidneys. A Creatinine test is a measure of how well your kidneys are working. To determine if your kidneys are functioning normally
Electrocardiogram (ECG) An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a test that records the electrical activity of the heart, by attaching electrodes to the body. An ECG is used to measure any damage to the heart, speed of heartbeat, size and position of your heart chambers, and effects of drugs or devices such as a pacemaker. An ECG is used to determine if a person has heart disease.
Fasting Blood Sugar (FBS) An FBS test measures the amount of sugar in the blood, after fasting (not eating) for several hours. FBS is a test for potential Diabetes, which is best managed and less dangerous, when determined earlier.
HbsAg This is a test to detect Hepatitis. Protein that is present on the surface of the virus will also be present in the blood in acute and chronic Hepatitis infections. Used to screen for and detect Hepatitis infections.
Lipid Profile, Extended Testing of different types of fat cells in the blood - Low Density Lipoproteins, High Density Lipoproteins, Very Low Denisty Lipoproteins, and Triglycerides, to indicate heart health. To determine risk of heart attack
Mammography Mammograms are X-rays of the breast, which take only a few seconds but can save the life of a woman. The technician places one breast at a time between two plastic plates which press the breast to provide a clear X-ray picture. Mammograms can show tumors long before they are big enough for you or your health care provider to feel. They are a recommended test for women.
Pap smear The Pap smear checks for changes in the cells of your cervix. The cervix is the lower part of the uterus (womb) that opens into the vagina (birth canal). A Pap test can save your life.

Women over age 65 who have had 3 normal Pap tests in a row may be able to discontinue tests.
Potassium A Potassium test is part of a routine medical exam, when you have symptoms such as weakness and/or cardiac arrhythmia, or when an electrolyte imbalance is suspected. The test is also used when you have a disease or condition, such as high blood pressure (hypertension) or kidney disease, that can affect your potassium level. To determine whether your potassium concentration is within normal limits.
Prostate Screening Antigen (PSA) Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) is a protein produced by cells of the prostate gland. The PSA test measures the level of PSA in the blood There is no specific normal or abnormal PSA level, however your test becomes your personal reference level for any future test. There can be different reasons for an elevated PSA level, including prostate cancer, benign prostate enlargement, inflammation, and infection.
SGOT (Serum glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase) Aspartate aminotransferase (AST) is an enzyme found mostly in the cells of the liver and kidney. If the liver is damaged, ALT is released into the blood stream, usually before more obvious symptoms of liver damage occur, such as jaundice. This makes AST a useful test for detecting liver damage. Indicator of Liver function or to monitor effects of medications which might afffect the liver.
SGPT (Serum glutamic-pyruvic transaminase) Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) is an enzyme found mostly in the cells of the liver and kidney. If the liver is damaged, ALT is released into the blood stream, usually before more obvious symptoms of liver damage occur, such as jaundice. This makes ALT a useful test for detecting liver damage. Indicator of Liver function or to monitor effects of medications which might afffect the liver.
Sodium A Sodium test is used to test for Sodium levels in the blood and to monitor chronic conditions like high or low blood pressure. To determine whether your sodium concentration is within normal limits and to help evaluate electrolyte balance and kidney function.
Thyroid Specific Hormone (TSH) This test measures how much TSH is in the blood. Thyroid abnornalities include hyperthyroidism (too much TSH) which can produce as rapid heart rate, weight loss, nervousness, hand tremors, irritated eyes, and difficulty sleeping. Hypothyroidism (too little TSH) can produce weight gain, dry skin, constipation, cold intolerance, and fatigue. To screen for and help diagnose thyroid disorders; to monitor treatment of hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism
Treadmill Stress Test A running test during which the activity of the heart is recorded. This test is not recommended for seniors or those with hypertension or other heart conditions. One of the standard ways to measure heart health.
Ultrasound - Breast Ultrasound imaging, also called sonography, uses high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body, in real time. A breast ultrasound helps to monitor for breast cancer or abnormalities of the breast.
Ultrasound - Whole Abdomen – Liver, Gallbladder, Urinary Bladder, Pancreas, Spleen, Kidneys, Pelvis (Women) OR Prostate (Men) Ultrasound imaging, also called sonography, uses high-frequency sound waves to produce pictures of the inside of the body, in real time. An abdominal ultrasound produces a picture of the organs and other structures in the upper abdomen. Ultrasound produces information for a variety of internal conditions, including enlarged organs, abdominal pain, and stones in gallbladder or kidney.
X-Ray X-rays are electromagnetic radiation, just like visible light. In a clinic, a machine sends x-ray particles called photons, which pass through the body. Special film records the images that are created. The basic X-ray is the posterior-anterior or PA view. The x-rays pass through the chest from the back. Diagnostic tool to see problems in the body's structure.
Hormone Testing Hormones are essential for every activity of life, including the processes of digestion, metabolism, growth, reproduction, and mood control. Many hormones, such as neurotransmitters, are active in more than one physical process. An important tool to determine our optimal hormone balance. Our hormones govern many of our physiological functions such as sexuality, reproduction, thyroid function, bone density, cholesterol and certain aspects of normal brain function.
