Lab Testing

The diagnostic department of vanguard medical group performs a comprehensive list of tests necessary for diagnosing and treating diseases. Our laboratories have certified pathologists who ensure quality control procedures. They are dedicated to provide accurate, timely, and cost-effective test results.

With state-of-the-art technology and experienced personnel, we provide a safe and accurate environment for your diagnostic testing needs. You can count on us from hematology to microbiology for reliable test results. In addition, our lab technicians are highly trained to use the latest tools and techniques for accurate lab testing.

Below is the list of the most common lab testing services we provide:

Glucose Screening Test

The glucose screening test is used to measure the blood sugar level. The average blood glucose level is 140 mg/dl. Therefore, whenever we ask patients for blood glucose tests for diabetes, we ask them to drink a glucose drink and measure their blood glucose level right after 60 minutes of the drink.

Pulse Oximetry Test

Pulse Oximetry is a test useful for evaluating oxygen saturation in the blood. In addition, this test is used to identify whether oxygen is properly transported to the body parts, such as the legs and arms, from the heart. In this test, a clip-like probe is attached to the body part of which oxygen level we want to measure.

INR Check

INR checks help determine if a person is at risk of developing blood clots and monitor the effects of warfarin, a blood thinner. In addition, the blood test helps in measuring the drugs’ effectiveness. So, if you are looking for an “INR test near me,” Vanguard Medical Group is your go-to place.

Heart Ultrasound Test

The heart ultrasound test is a medical scanning of the structure and functions of the heart. In this test, a probe ensures a good heart working at rest. Vanguard medical experts move this probe over different places of the heart to get a complete picture of cardiac functioning. On completing this test, a complete picture is obtained of the “echo” sound.

Carotid Arteries Test

A carotid arteries test is a painless diagnostic procedure to evaluate the proper functioning and blood flow in carotid arteries. There are two carotid arteries present on the sides of the neck. Any blockage or clot in these arteries may lead to stroke. Therefore, removing the blockage of carotid arteries is important to lower stroke risks.

Thyroid Gland Ultrasound

Thyroid gland ultrasound gives a pictorial representation of the thyroid gland and uses a hand-held instrument to get a two-dimensional picture of the thyroid. This test is used to diagnose the presence of cysts, goiters, or tumors in the thyroid gland of the neck. Vanguard medical experts can improve biopsy accuracy by identification of thyroid gland functioning.

Abdomen and Pelvis Test

The abdomen and pelvis test is used to diagnose fibroid tumors, cysts, or stones in these body parts. At Vanguard Medical, computed tomography (CT) is key in diagnosing colon, small bowel, and internal organs disease. This test is also beneficial for evaluating the growth of the fetus in the mother’s body during pregnancy.

Cancer Screening Test

Cancer screening tests are helpful in the early diagnosis of cancer. Our medical group offers cancer diagnostic tests such as breast, colon, and cervical cancer. These tests help us detect cancer early on so that treatment can be started before it spreads to other body parts. At Vanguard Medical Group, our expert lab testing staff ensures accurate results and provides prompt consultation regarding cancer diagnosis and treatment.

General FAQs

For accurate diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes, the glycated hemoglobin (A1C) test is often used. By measuring your average blood sugar level over a two to three-month period, this reliable test helps you gain insight into your health status.
An ultrasound of the heart, also known as an echocardiogram, is a noninvasive test that uses sound waves to create a detailed picture of the heart and its associated structures. This test helps to evaluate the size, shape, and motion of your heart valves and chambers, as well as the amount of blood pumped out with each beat. Additionally, it can detect any irregularities in the heart rhythm that could be caused by heart disease.
Carotid artery duplex ultrasound is the most effective test for diagnosing carotid artery disease. This noninvasive imaging method uses sound waves to create images of the carotid artery, allowing doctors to make an accurate diagnosis and determine the extent of any blockages or narrowing.

Some of the common cancer screening tests include:

  • Alpha-fetoprotein blood test
  • Multi-cancer detection tests
  • PSA test
  • CA-125 test
  • Breast MRI
  • Skin exams
  • Transvaginal ultrasound
An abdomen and pelvis scan is an imaging test that helps diagnose pain, inflammation, or other abnormalities in the abdominal or pelvic region. The scan uses a combination of sound waves and X-rays to create images of the abdominal and pelvic area, allowing doctors to identify any abnormalities or conditions that may be present. For example, the scan is often used to diagnose ovarian cysts, enlarged lymph nodes, and abdominal aortic aneurysms.
