Kidney Testing We Provide
Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM)
During an ABPM, you will wear a device for 24 hours that will measure and record your blood pressure. ABPM can help diagnose hypertension.
Ultrasound-guided kidney biopsy
During a kidney biopsy, your doctor will insert a needle into the kidney to take a tissue sample for testing. Your doctor might use an ultrasound to help guide the needle to the precise location. An ultrasound uses a transducer that sends sound waves into your body that bounce off your kidneys, creating an image of your kidneys.
