Laredo Arthritis & Rheumatology offers Labs and Imaging for all our patients. Our facility creates an opportunity for patients to be diagnosed and treated under the same roof by the Laredo Arthritis & Rheumatology staff. Labs can be done in the office quickly, easily, and usually without fasting. There is an X-Ray room available for in-house examinations for the convenience of our clients. Our staff uses Ultrasound technology as part of our innovative imaging services. Ultrasound is more sensitive to detecting bone erosion than X-ray.
Lab work required for diagnosis is conveniently provided at Laredo Arthritis and Rheumatology. With our in-house lab, we can perform blood work and other related analysis in a timely fashion without scheduling an appointment away from our facilities.
Laredo Arthritis and Rheumatology has a skilled staff that provides ultrasound imaging for its patients. Ultrasound has become an important part of detecting arthritis and rheumatological illnesses in their early stages. The advances in ultrasound imaging technology are making it easier to diagnose and treat. Ultrasound can also be used as a form of therapy. Laredo Arthritis and Rheumatology uses ultrasound waves to relieve pain, calm inflammation, and encourage healing.
We have excellent Xray facilities at Laredo Arthritis and Rheumatology. Xrays are an integral part of the diagnosis. They can help determine the severity of the damage caused by arthritis and other rheumatoid inflammatory illness. Xrays can reveal bone spurring, uneven cartilage loss, and other joint degradation. Laredo Arthritis and Rheumatology's certified Xray technicians provide the necessary imaging on site without having to wait for X-rays from other facilities or providers.
