Dr. Olsen works closely with advanced imaging facilities
in the treasure valley to help obtain an accurate diagnosis
of your condition. Tests performed are occassionally
necessary, however many patient's can avoid over-used,
expensive and unecessary tests as the result of a
thorough evaluation in the office.
A trial of therapy is often successful and usually can be
performed before expensive tests. However, if therapies fail
to resolve your symptoms or there is strong evidence on
examination to support another clinic condition, diagnostic
tests will be considered. Here is a list of some of the tests
Dr. Olsen may request.
A radiograph is an image of the bones, including the
spaces between them. We can see bony changes that
suggest arthritis and sometimes distinguish fractures,
tumors and sinus conditions.
A CT scan is a scanning radiograph that can be taken to
give a 3D view of the bones and surrounding tissues.
An MRI is advanced imaging that shows muscles, joints,
ligaments, nervous system tissue and spinal discs. An
MRI is the most commonly used test to evaluation the
brain with migraine headaches.
Laboratory tests can be used to examine blood cell levels
and the chemistry of the blood. Some tests are for general
screening and others are more specific to conditions you
