Ancillary Services Testing

Laboratory

Hours: Monday - Friday: 7:45 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Manager: Denise Stomieroski
Phone: 716-376-2205

Our laboratory is accredited through COLA (Commission on Office Laboratory Accreditation). Through COLA accreditation our laboratory is recognized as meeting the regulatory requirements of the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments.

The laboratory operates on a "first come, first served basis" and consists of chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis, and special chemistry which includes endocrinology and therapeutic drug monitoring. The majority of the tests collected by our phlebotomists are performed in our laboratory and reported the same day. However, due to HMO restrictions, we are required to send some testing to a reference laboratory (Olean General Hospital & Quest Diagnostics).

Bone Mineral Density

Bone Mineral Densitometry (BMD) is a test that measures the amount of calcium in a specific region of the bones. From this information, an estimate of the strength of your bones can be made.

Minerals (such as calcium) are constantly being added and taken away from bone. When minerals are taken away faster than they are added, the bones become lighter, less dense and more porous. This makes the bones weaker and increases their risk of fracture.

Bones naturally become thinner (called osteopenia) as you grow older because existing bone is broken down faster than new bone is made. With further bone loss, osteopenia develops into osteoporosis. Although osteoporosis can occur in men, it is most common in women who have gone through menopause.

Ordinary x-rays cannot detect mild bone loss. OMG offers DEXA Scan (Dual Energy X-ray Absorptiometry). DEXA uses two different x-ray beams. The amounts of each x-ray beam that is blocked by bone and soft tissue are compared to estimate the bone density. DEXA is the most accurate method for measuring BMD. It is fast and uses very low doses of radiation.

Your primary healthcare provider will determine if a DEXA Scan would be of use in diagnosing bone density loss in you
