NMR LipoProfile

Our Price:
An advanced cardio vascular diagnostic test that uses nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), the NMR Lipoprofile provides a rapid, simultaneous and direct measurement of the LDL particle numbers that adversely affect blood and vessels, as well as measurement of HDL and the subclasses of cholesterol. It measures size and volume of the particles that carry cholesterol, which can build up in the arteries. 

LDL is the bad cholesterol that causes heart disease. It has been documented that patients with elevated LDL particles are at increased risk of cardio-vascular events. 

Unlike traditional cholesterol testing, NMR utilizes specialized imaging that produces a digital representation of the molecules found in a simple blood sample. 

The major benefit to an NMR Lipoprofile is that more individualized treatment plans can be designed and administered with this sophisticated method, as opposed to using only standard lipid panel testing. 

Results from this test will take 5 to 7 days.
