GOAL: Ideally, and whenever possible, to greatly increase the number of DXA’s being done at this time---for those of course needing them.
And if we cannot: To provide the next-best option to all those who we can otherwise reach--a very accurate and very useful ultrasound assessment--right here and right now.
One proposed means of achieving this: To first increase the number of Ultrasound tests—to SCREEN—and thus to figuratively and respectively ‘hold the patient’s AND doctor’s hand’—to a greater degree—so as to help accomplish our mission.
Dr. Howayeck’s 2 GENERAL--IMPORTANT--OBSERVATIONS that had led to the inception of our service:
1) That not enough people at this time are being scanned by DXA technology—plain and simple! And…………………………….
2) That there needs to be far more direct and personal assistance to the patient and her doctor that is provided from amongst the different individuals like ourselves who are able to be appropriately and discretely involved with each person’s osteoporosis screening process so that can ideally serve the objective of getting high-risk low bone density individuals. Our addressing this results in many of our screenees, we feel, then allows all of us to get to desired, important, and variable “finish lines” of optimal and definitive DXA testing!
