Imaging

Florida Digestive Health Specialists provides patients with high-quality imaging services at convenient locations. Our in-depth diagnostic imaging helps our gastroenterologists manage, diagnose, and treat gastrointestinal and liver illnesses more effectively.

Imaging services offered are:

Capsule Endoscopy: Capsule endoscopy allows your gastroenterologist to examine the lining of your small intestine, which is difficult to reach even with more traditional endoscopy procedures. A tiny wireless camera sits inside a vitamin-size capsule that you swallow. As the camera moves through your digestive tract, it takes pictures that your gastroenterologist will later interpret.

FibroScan®: A FibroScan is a noninvasive ultrasound device that measures liver scarring, called fibrosis, 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 for assessing liver damage. Ask your FDHS provider if you are eligible to receive a free FibroScan, and click here learn more from our research institute.

  • Type 2 diabetes
