The NDS Value Proposition Is Simple and Effective
At National Diagnostic Solutions, our value proposition is simple. We use state-of-the-art technology to provide in-office diagnostic imaging testing solutions that help our Affiliate Physicians improve patient care and convenience and grow their treatment offerings.
We take a consultative approach when working with our clients, which include Primary Care Physicians and Specialists such as Cardiologists to design a fully customized “turn-key” in-office diagnostic imaging solution.
An echocardiogram is an ultrasound test that can evaluate the structures of the heart, as well as the direction of blood flow within it. Technicians specially trained in echocardiography produce the images and videos, often using a special probe or transducer that is placed in various places on the chest wall, to view the heart from different directions. Cardiologists, or heart specialists, are trained to evaluate these images to assess heart function and provide a report of the results.The echocardiogram is just one of the many tests that can be done to evaluate heart anatomy and function.
A transthoracic echocardiogram is a standard, noninvasive echocardiogram. A technician (sonographer) spreads gel on your chest and then presses a device known as a transducer firmly against your skin, aiming an ultrasound beam through your chest to your heart. The transducer records the sound wave echoes from your heart. A computer converts the echoes into moving images on a monitor.
If your lungs or ribs block the view, you may need a small amount of liquid (contrast agent) injected through an intravenous line (IV) that will make your heart’s structures show up more clearly on a monitor, improving the images.
An electrocardiogram (EKG, ECG) is the most common heart tracing done. Electrodes are placed on the chest wall and collect information about the electrical activity of the heart. Aside from the rate and rhythm of the heartbeat, the EKG can provide indirect evidence of blood flow within arteries to heart muscle and the thickness of heart muscle.
In addition to providing cardiac imaging services, NDS also works with many Surgeons and Specialists to provide full vascular, arterial, general and color-doppler ultrasounds. Please see the list below for services that we are currently offering clients:
