Imaging and Diagnostic Testing

Bone Density (DEXA scan) – Endocrinologists use the DEXA scan, which measures the amount of energy that passes through a specific bone, to evaluate bone strength and risk of osteoporosis.

Echocardiogram – An echocardiogram (ECHO), which uses sound waves to create detailed images of the heart, is used by cardiologists to diagnose cardiovascular conditions, such as arrhythmias or valvular heart disease.

Electrocardiogram – An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG), which measures the electrical activity of the heart muscles, is used by cardiologists to diagnose cardiovascular conditions, such as heart attack and coronary heart disease.

Stress Testing – Cardiologists use stress testing, which measures blood flow to the heart, to diagnose and examine conditions including heart attack, arrhythmias and coronary artery disease.

Ultrasound – Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to make computer images of internal body organs, such as the heart, lungs, kidneys and liver. It may also be used during pregnancy to view the fetus.

Vascular Laboratory – Our nationally accredited Vascular Laboratory provides advanced vascular ultrasound testing for a wide range of vascular disorders including abdominal aortic aneursym, carotid artery disease, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and circulatory problems related to diabetes.

X-ray – During an X-ray, different types of body tissue absorb varying amounts of radiation, creating black and white images doctors use to examine conditions such as cancer, bone fractures, osteoporosis and heart disease.

Infusion Services

Please call 410-801-3000 to schedule an infusion appointment at Mercy Personal Physicians at Glen Burnie.

Chemotherapy (Infusion Therapy) – Chemotherapy, which works to stop or slow down the growth of cancerous cells, is used by medical oncologists at Mercy Personal Physicians at Lutherville in creating individualized treatment plans for patients with a variety of cancers.

GI Infusion Therapy – GI Infusion Therapy is used in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, a gastrointestinal (GI) disorder.

Lab Services

Blood Draw – Doctors examine blood samples collected during a blood draw to diagnose conditions, plan treatments and monitor health. Similar tests include the collection of urine or body tissue.
