Pulmonary Associates of Charleston Provides On-Site Radiology
Pulmonary Associates of Charleston, PLLC, provides on-site radiology to patients in South Charleston, WV. We provide same-day test reading as well to restore patients’ peace of mind. When referred by a physician, our technicians perform the following tests:
CT Scans: CT scans detect acute and chronic changes in lungs. CT scans provide more in-depth images than x-rays.
X-Rays: X-rays provide two-dimensional images. An x-ray will show signs of pneumonia, TB, cancer, and other pulmonary diseases.
EKG/ECG: Electrocardiograms (ECG or EKG) record heart rhythm. They can show signs of COPD, pulmonary hypertension, and pulmonary embolism. Technicians will go over the results with patients the same day as the test.
Pulmonary Rehabilitation for Breathing Disorder Treatment
Pulmonary Associates of Charleston offers physical therapy to treat breathing disorders. Respiratory therapists work closely with patients during physical activity to help manage their disease. We also provide education during pulmonary rehabilitation for patients to fully understand their disease and how to live comfortably. Referred patients will attend therapy sessions twice a week. The pulmonary rehabilitation sessions are available Monday through Thursday during office hours, and patient assessments take place on Fridays.
