Ankle Brachial Index (ABI)

A simple, reliable test for diagnosing peripheral arterial disease. Blood pressure measurements are taken at the arms and ankles using a specialized computer and an ultrasound device called a Doppler that produces sound waves.

Billing Codes
CPT: 93922, Diagnosis: R09.89

B

Balance Plate

Also called a Posturography test, uses equipment known as the Balance+Plus Fall Assessment System. This equipment looks like a weight scale, but with extra computerized accessories. The patient simply steps onto it, and the system’s software calculates the patient’s weight and body mass index, determines his or her balance, stability or falls-risk. In seconds, the detailed description documents the patient’s age, sex, height, weight, body mass index and balance, stability and falls-risk score… graded as either normal, mildly impaired, moderately impaired, severely impaired or profoundly impaired.

CPX

A non-invasive exercise test that examines the cardiopulmonary system as a whole. Exercise testing remains a remarkably versatile tool that provides valuable diagnostic information regarding patients at risk of cardiovascular or pulmonary disease. Integration of data obtained from pulmonary function tests (PFT’s), gas exchange analyses (oxygen consumption) and electrocardiogram (ECG) obtained at maximal work rate allows for the ability to differentiate between limiting factors due to the heart, lungs, obesity or deconditioning. CPX provides a tremendous amount of information relating to present and future health outcomes.

Billing Codes
CPT: 82274, Diagnosis: Z12.11

Hemoglobin AC1

A hemoglobin A1c test measures the average amount of sugar in your blood over the last 3 months. As your body processes blood sugar, small amounts of glucose naturally bond with hemoglobin, a protein in the red blood cells. As a result, the hemoglobin bonded with glucose (glycated hemoglobin, or A1c) can be used as an overall record of glucose levels for as long as the individual red blood cell lives, which is about two to three months.

Billing Codes
CPT: 83036, Diagnosis: R73.03, R73.09

High Sensitivity C-Reactive Protein

The high sensitivity CRP (hs-CRP) test measures very small amounts of CRP in the blood and is ordered most frequently for seemingly healthy people to assess their potential risk for heart problems.

P

Pulmonary Function Test

The PFT is a lung function test. The PFT measures how well the lungs take in and exhale air, and how efficiently they transfer oxygen into the blood. Spirometry measures how well the lungs exhale. The information gathered during this test is useful in diagnosing certain types of lung disorders, but is primarily used to assess obstructive lung diseases such as asthma.

Billing Codes
CPT: 94010 & 94375, Diagnosis: Z00.00 or Z00.01

PSA

A PSA test measures the amount of prostate-specific antigen in the blood. Low amounts of PSA may be found in the blood of healthy men. The amount of PSA in the blood normally increases as a man’s prostate enlarges with age. It is also increased by inflammation of the prostate gland (prostatitis) and by prostate cancer.

Billing Codes
CPT: 84153, Diagnosis: Z12.5

R

S

Sleep Study

A sleep study can help detect sleep apnea, a serious and life threatening condition, occurring when the airway temporarily collapses during sleep, causing breathing to repeatedly stop and start during sleep. Most patients who suffer from OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnea) will experience low levels of oxygen in the blood, high blood pressure and a quality of life decrease due to headaches and drowsiness. Some signs of OSA include loud snoring, dry mouth, morning headaches and shortness of breath.

T

T3 Uptake

The thyroid uptake test estimates how much thyroid hormone-binding proteins are available in the blood through a calculation based on levels of T3 or T4 added to a patient’s blood specimen.

Billing Codes

This is the largest and most strucurally complicated vitamin and provides valuable information in treating anemia. It is a water-soluble vitamin with a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, and for the formation of blood. B12 is one of the eight B vitamins. It is involved in the metabolism of every cell of the human body, and important for energy production.

Billing Codes
CPT: 82607, Diagnosis: Z00.00, E53.8

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is a fat soluble vitamin that can build up in the bloodstream so it is important to take the correct levels of Vitamin D as recommended by your provider. Vitamin D is referred to as the “Sunshine Vitamin” because it is generally felt to be converted by the skin into Vitamin D in the human body. However, recently widespread information about a variety of different diseases exists including bone health, cancer and cardiovascular disease, diabetes, stroke and chronic fatigue. Some depression has also been linked to low levels of Vitamin D.

Billing Codes
CPT: 82306, Diagnosis: Z00.00, E55.9

Videonystagmography (VNG)

VNG testing is used to determine if a vestibular (inner ear) disease may be causing a balance or dizziness problem, and is one of the only tests available today that can decipher between a unilateral (one ear) and bilateral (both ears) vestibular loss. VNG testing is a series of tests designed to document a persons ability to follow visual objects with their eyes and how well the eyes respond to information from the vestibular system.
