Florida Digestive Health Specialists recently opened a new, convenient ultrasound imaging location at one of its Sarasota offices. Patients can now receive imaging services at Lee Mitchel, MD, near downtown Sarasota in Midtown Medical Plaza. Imaging services offer patients the ability to have more in-depth testing for specific gastrointestinal issues. Providing this alternative for patients enables our gastroenterologists to manage diagnosis and treatment more efficiently.
And remember, select the imaging location that is most convenient for you – you are not required to go to your gastroenterologist’s clinic for scans. Your gastroenterologist will be informed of the scan results and will follow-up with you to share next steps.
Also available at this location, as well as our other imaging locations, are free FibroScan®s! A FibroScan® is a noninvasive ultrasound device that measures liver scarring and the amount of fat in the liver. Like a traditional ultrasound exam, a FibroScan® is quick and painless. It provides a non-surgical option to assessing liver damage. Ask our ultraSound tech if you are eligible to receive a free FibroScan® following your traditional imaging scan, and click here learn more from our research institute.
