Pope Diagnostics aka Pope Dx, is a provider of in-office diagnostic studies since 1997. Serving South Carolina, Georgia and North Carolina.

Echocardiography
A painless ultrasound test that uses sound waves to display an image of your heart in motion. Physicians often use this test, also called an echo, to detect and study irregular heartbeats, problematic valves, heart size and structure, and damaged heart muscle.

Most common diagnosis associated with diagnostic procedures.
Echocardiogram - Hypertension, Shortness of breathe, Edema, Abn. EKG, Dyspnea, Atrial Fibrilation, Atrial Flutter, Palpitations, Murmur, Chest Pain, Valvular Disease (Mitral, Aortic, Tricuspid, Pulmonic), TIA, CVA


Vascular Ultrasound

Vascular sonography, also called vascular ultra-sound, is a diagnostic procedure that uses sound waves to produce images of the blood vessels and blood flow.

Most common diagnosis associated with diagnostic procedures.
Carotids - Bruit, CVA, TIA, Dizziness
Venous - Leg Pain, Swelling, Edema


General Ultrasound

Ultrasound also called sonography or diagnostic medical sonography, is an imaging method that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce precise images of structures within your body.

Most common diagnosis associated with diagnostic procedures.
pain, swelling, infection


Nerve Conduction Studies

A nerve conduction study (NCS) is a test commonly used to evaluate the function, especially the ability of electrical conduction, of the motor and sensory nerves of the human body.

Most common diagnosis associated with diagnostic procedures.
Nerve Conductions - Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Paresthesias, Diabetic Neuropathy, Extremity Pain, Numbness


Nuclear Stress Testing
Nuclear Stress Testing uses a small dose of a liquid radioactive solution to track blood flow to the heart muscle, and to evaluate heart function. (picture of radioactive injection) A treadmill stress test evaluates your heart's response to physical activity through the monitoring of your electrocardiogram, heart rate and blood pressure while you exercise on a treadmill. When the two tests are combined, an assessment can be made of the status of the blood supply to your heart at rest, as well as during stress. This can provide your doctor with information regarding whether or not you have significant blockages in your heart arteries. The test also includes an assessment of the pumping function of your heart.

Nuclear Stress testing is used for the following reasons:

  • Evaluate if chest pain or an abnormal EKG is being caused by unknown coronary artery disease (CAD), and if CAD is present, which vessels are being affected and to what extent is the disease.
  • Determine if previous surgical intervention (Stents, bypass) requires any further attention
  • Evaluate if previously known blockages require angioplasty
  • Cardiac pre-operative clearance
  • Follow progress of known CAD on a regular basis (usually every year or two depending on severity)


Vein Ablations

This condition progressively damages the valves of the saphenous vein and cosmetically disfigures the leg. Some common symptoms of venous insufficiency are:

  • Varicose veins
  • Burning or itching of the skin
  • Color and texture changes of
  • the skin
    Aching, tired or weak legs, especially after long periods of standing or sitting
  • Swollen legs and/or ankles (edema)
  • Poorly-healing wounds, such as skin ulcers commonly above the medial malleolus
