ULTRASOUND DEPARTMENT
Ultrasound is a simple, painless and safe examination performed using ultrasound (high frequency sound waves) without the use of radiation.

It provides information about the function of compact organs and vessels of the human body.

The accuracy and quality of the test depends on:

  • The experience of the operator (operator-dependent) is very important for a correct diagnosis. The diagnosis is done in real time, and the images are those taken by the examiner, during the examination, according to the diagnosis.
  • The use of high-resolution multicrystal medical devices.

The ultrasound section is equipped with specially trained medical personnel and modern ultrasound systems.

GE LOGIQ S7 EXPERT, with high resolution sound waves and a system for the quantitative determination of the tissue blood flow, utilizing the technique of elastography.

Particular and specialized examinations, as well as invasive medical interventions are carried out according to the standards set by international centers.

Besides routine examinations, ultrasounds of internal organs, and Color Doppler (Triplex) of the vessels, the following are also performed:
SPECIAL TESTS

  • Study of compact organs (liver, kidney, spleen, pancreas)
  • Pre-operative “vein mapping”
  • Internal organs elastography (thyroid, breast, liver, prostate, and other organs)

INVASIVE TESTS

  • Transrectal ultrasound of the prostate using elastography and image-guided prostate biopsy
  • Fine needle Aspiration (FNA) of the thyroid - salivary glands - lymph nodes
  • Thoracentesis [pleural tap] (for diagnostic – therapeutic/evacuation purposes)
  • Paracentisis [aspiration of ascitic fluid] (for diagnostic – therapeutic/evacuation purposes)
  • Guided histological liver biopsy.
  • Evacuation of intra-abdominal abscesses – collections
  • Image-Guided Breast Biopsy for cytological and histological examination

DIAGNOSTIC TESTS

ORGAN ULTRASOUND

  • DYNAMIC ULTRASOUND OF THE MUSCULOSCELETAL SYSTEM (Shoulder, Elbow, Hip, Knee, Muscles)
  • CAROTID & VERTEBRAL ARTERIES
    Color Doppler (Triplex) of the carotid and vertebral arteries (hemodynamic and morphological study)
  • TEMPORAL ARTERIES
    Color Doppler (Triplex) of the temporal arteries (hemodynamic and morphological study)
  • JUGULAR VEINS
    Color Doppler (Triplex) of the jugular veins (hemodynamic and morphological study)

  • RENAL ARTERIES
    Color Doppler (Triplex) of the renal arteries (hemodynamic and morphological study)
  • RENAL VEINS
  • HIP ULTRASOUND IN NEWBORNS
    It is the test of choice for early diagnosis of hip dysplasia. It takes place in the first trimester after the birth of the child. In many countries, it has been established as a standard screening test performed on all newborns.
