The Clinical Measurement Centre at Sengkang General Hospital conducts diagnostic tests to assess brain, lung, heart, vascular, nerve and muscle functions with the help of specialised equipment and devices to diagnose neurological, pulmonary, cardiac, vascular, and sleep disorders. These tests support doctors in their diagnosis and treatment of various medical conditions.
The Clinical Measurement Centre conducts cardiac investigations which are important in the diagnosis of heart conditions, such as coronary heart disease, valvular heart disease, arrhythmias, hypertension, etc.
The tests include:
Neurodiagnostics testing facility is equipped with state-of-the-art technology for the evaluation of neurologic and neuromuscular disorders.
Pulmonary Diagnostic tests help diagnose lung problems in patients. Testing services offered include:
Vascular Diagnostics helps to conduct a comprehensive assessment in vascular diseases.
Sleep Diagnostics conducts daytime and overnight tests to help diagnose sleep disorders such as sleep movement disorders and obstructive sleep apnea, where breathing is interrupted during sleep.
Cardiac Diagnostics (Medical Centre, Level 4)
Cardiac Diagnostics conducts a range of tests to help diagnose heart conditions like coronary heart disease and cardiomyopathy. One of the most common tests is an electrocardiogram (ECG) that records the heart's rhythm and activity. Here, patients can also get regular checks on their pacemaker, a small device placed in the chest to control abnormal heart rhythms.
Neurodiagnostics (Medical Centre, Level 5)
Neurodiagnostics conducts tests to measure the functions of the brain, nerves and muscles. Common tests include a nerve conduction study, an ultrasound of the head and neck arteries and an electroencephalogram (EEG) that measures brain activity. With the aid of electrical stimulations, electrodes and recording devices, these tests help diagnose problems related to transient ischemic attack, stroke, epilepsy, neuromuscular disorders, and multiple sclerosis.
Pulmonary Diagnostics (Medical Centre, Level 4)
Pulmonary Diagnostics conducts a range of tests to measure how well the lungs take in and exhale air, along with its efficiency in transferring oxygen into the blood. A spirometry test is commonly done to diagnose Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), a chronic condition that often affects smokers and the elderly. Other common conditions seen here include asthma, chronic cough or shortness of breath.
Vascular Diagnostics (Medical Centre, Level 4)
Vascular Diagnostics helps to conduct a comprehensive assessment of vascular diseases. 'Vascular' refers to the vessels that circulate blood throughout the body. Common scans include a duplex ultrasound of the lower limbs and the toe pressure test which is similar to a blood pressure test on the arm. The early detection of blood disorders like blood clots can help in preventing long-term complications.
Sleep Diagnostics (Medical Centre, Level 6)
Sleep Diagnostics conducts daytime and overnight tests to help diagnose sleep disorders such as sleep movement disorders and obstructive sleep apnea, where breathing is interrupted during sleep. A common test is a polysomnography, a sleep study which measures oxygen levels, body movements and brain waves to help determine the cause for disruptive sleep.
