ELIH has a reputation for superior service built on standards of excellence for clinical quality.

Bone Densitometry: A quick and painless non-invasive procedure for osteoporosis, bone mineral densitometry (BMD) measures the thickness of your bones. These tests compare your bone density (strength) with standards for what is expected in someone of your age, gender, and size. Additionally, test results are compared to the optimal peak bone density of a healthy young adult of the same gender.

Ultrasound: Also called sonography, ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves (beyond the range of human hearing) and computer processing to create detailed images of internal organs and other soft-tissue structures inside the body. With ultrasound there's no exposure to radiation.
