Ultra Imaging Inc.
Ultrasounds
Ultrasound, also called sonography, uses sound waves to develop ultrasound images of what's going on inside the body. An instrument called a transducer emits high-frequency sound, inaudible to human ears, and then records the echoes as the sound waves bounce back to determine the size, shape, and consistency of soft tissues and organs.
This information is relayed in real time to produce images on a computer screen. Ultrasound technicians, or sonographers, have special training in how to perform the test. Then a radiologist or your doctor will interpret the ultrasound images. This technology can help diagnose and treat certain conditions.

Sleep Study Internal Medicine
Rocky Mountain Sleep Research
Dr. Pagel, MD
Dr. Shapiro, MD
Sleep studies are tests that measure how well you sleep and how your body responds to sleep problems. These tests can help your doctor find out whether you have a sleep disorder and how severe it is.
Sleep studies are important because untreated sleep disorders can raise your risk for heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and other medical conditions. Sleep disorders also have been linked to an increased risk of injury, such as falling (in the elderly) and car accidents.

Sleep studies can help diagnose:
Sleep-related breathing disorders, such as sleep apnea
Sleep-related seizure disorders
Sleep-related movement disorders, such as periodic limb movement disorder
Sleep disorders that cause extreme daytime tiredness, such as narcolepsy
Doctors might use sleep studies to help diagnose or rule out restless legs syndrome (RLS). However, RLS usually is diagnosed based on signs and symptoms, medical history, and a physical exam.

Nutrition Plus
Janette Kochis, R.D. Registred Dietitian 
Comprehensive Nutrition Consultations will help you maintain accountability while pursuing health goals.
Dietitians and nutritionists are experts in the use of food and nutrition to
promote health and manage disease. They advise people on what to eat in order to
lead a healthy lifestyle or achieve a specific health-related goal.
Here are some reasons to visit an RD: hypertension, elevated cholesterol, elevated triglycerides, overweight, obesity, PCOS, diabetes, and lack of energy, to name just a few. Nourishment is one of the most important components of longevity. Nourishment both on the physical and the emotional level is necessary for a healthy active life. RDs will look at the whole picture, what you eat, how you move, and how you work, live, and play. RDs can help you achieve your dietary and fitness goals.
