Creatinine Clearance via Bioimpedance

This is a useful non-invasive test to determine kidney function, which is accurate and painless. Creatinine clearance is estimated using bioimpedance analysis techniques, which entails placing four electrodes on your arms and legs, and passing a safe amount of DC current. This is a convenient, safe and practical test that can be used to gauge creatinine clearance from the body, and gives a more accurate method of determining kidney function.

 

Other clinical diagnostic tests provided at Western Hospital include:

 

Spirometry: This is a common test to determine lung function, and is used to diagnose and assess conditions that affect breathing such as asthma, pulmonary fibrosis, cystic fibrosis, chronic bronchitis, emphysema and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

 

Uroflowmetry: This is a simple test that is used to determine the flow rate of urine over time. It is a non-invasive test that is useful to assess bladder and sphincter function and how well your urinary tract functions.
