Ultrasonography

Modern Complex Ultrasound Center

The ultrasound scan is a fast, easily implemented, pain-free method used for the examination of soft tissues, which has no harmful side effect.

The medical ultrasound equipment creates vibrations in the ultrasound range, which reflects from the different tissues in different ways.

By using the reflected sounds, it is suitable for the separation of tissues of different structure, making high-resolution two- or three-dimensional images.

In the framework of private healthcare, you do not need a referral to initiate the payable Ultrasound scanning.

The ultrasound examination in diagnostic imaging:

Ultrasonic imaging is of great importance in medical diagnostics, as a fast, convenient, accessible, and portable method of examining soft tissues. 

Since there are no adverse side effects, it can be repeated indefinitely, and so is perfect for screenings

During the abdominal ultrasound examination the liver, biliary tract, gall bladder, pancreas, spleen, kidneys, and to a lesser extent, the gastrointestinal tract and the abdominal vessels, can be diagnosed. 

The pelvic ultrasound is particularly suitable for the assessment of the bladder and sexual organs, prostate, uterus, and ovaries.

Body cavity examinations (vaginal or rectal prostate examination performed by a gynecologist or urologist), gives a more accurate picture of the structure of the sex organs. During the examination of the cervical region, the position of the salivary glands, thyroid, lymph nodes in the neck, the abnormalities formed in the organs can be diagnosed.The testes, the breasts, and other soft tissues, such as tactile skin formulas, or changes in the muscles can be examined by ultrasound. 

Ultrasonography is excellent for imaging and tracing the structure of the blood vessels, stenoses, and circulation disruption. 

The ultrasound examination in practice:

It usually takes places in a lying position so that every part of the body of the patient can be examined.  The skin surface should be lubricated in order to promote the spread of ultrasound gel.  Different transducers are used for different examinations, and while moving on the surface, the organs can be examined from different angles. The examining doctor freezes the image captured by the device, or it can be digitally recorded or printed, and it is possible to record it on video too.

The images or measurements can be made retrospectively, and the machine can be used for performing various calculations, for example, checking difficulties in emptying the bladder.

What you should know before ultrasonography:

Do not eat 5-6 hours before the examination, but non-carbonated and flavour-free water can be drunk, and is even recommended. Avoid the consumption of coffee, as this can cause gallbladder contraction, which may affect the outcome of the examination. The day before the test it is not recommended to eat leguminous vegetables, as well as gas-forming foods, like kale, Brussels sprouts, kohlrabi, cauliflower, etc.).

It is necessary that the bladder should be full, as it enables an accurate diagnosis of the pelvic organs (male and female sexual organs). 

If you had a mirrored examination (delivering air into the intestinal system), then you would need a break for two days between the abdominal / pelvic ultrasound examination.

If you had a previous ultrasound scanning examination, or if you have previous findings and test results, (CT, MRI, lab tests), medical documentation (ambulatory sheet, final report), we ask you to bring all the materials, including recordings, so that we can prepare an accurate assessment of your condition.

– Ultrasound examinations available at our centre –

Abdominal and pelvic ultrasound examination:

The most frequently asked questions during the test are about abdominal discomfort, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, cramps, sensitivity to pressure, palpable formula, blood in the urine. The test is suitable for detecting and assessing ascites and examining abdominal arteries.

The doppler examination of jugular veins:

When we examine the large cervical arteries, it is also necessary to check the constrictions, the size and degree of the flow disturbances , primarily in the case of heart and vascular diseases and cerebral ischemia, but it is also recommended as a screening examination.

Breast ultrasound scanning:

Breast ultrasound examination is recommended for women over 30 years. Liquid formulas are an excellent method of detecting high cysts, which are a frequent cause of painful “knot” feelings as well. The test includes the examination of the lymph nodes too.

Doppler examination of extremity veins:

We detect circulatory abnormalities of deep veins,  mainly we look for occlusion, or follow the healing process of occluded blood vessels. The blocked veins can be severe pulmonary vascular occlusion, a source of pulmonary embolism, therefore it is necessary to exclude them as soon as possible.

Baby Cinema:

We create 2D and 3D images of the fetus, where the parents can monitor the baby’s movements. The images can be taken home by the parents on a data port. The test is not suitable for diagnostics.

Cervical soft tissue ultrasound examination:

We carry out tests of the neck formulas (salivary glands, thyroid, lymph nodes), the most common symptoms are pain, enlargement, and swallowing difficulties.

Soft tissue ultrasound examination:

This method is suitable for the examination of soft tissues, palpable skin lesions, fatty lumps located in the skin and superficial lymph nodes. 

Ultrasonic examination of testes:

We perform this examination for testing the testes and the epididymides structure, when there is a suspicion of cancer and inflammation, also to detect fluid collections and varicose veins.

The ultrasound technique:

The ultrasound picture is a high-performance computer echo-image of the body from within, (this can be displayed almost in real time, with minimal delay, on the computer monitor – about 14-25 pics / sec).
