Ultrasound

Ultrasound (ultrasonography) is an increasingly widespread imaging exploration technique, without which today the diagnosis of many medical and surgical conditions is unthinkable. It is a “real-time” diagnostic method, based on the differentiated transmission of ultrasound through various types of tissue.

The ultrasound technique is non-invasive for the human body, therefore it can be repeated as many times as needed in the monitoring of a patient and has become an extremely useful tool for the clinician.

Ultrasound can be performed at the level of all parenchymal organs, it does not require special preparation on the part of the patient, making possible a highly accurate diagnosis in a wide “palette” of ailments. Modern ultrasonographic equipment, even if they are quite expensive, allows ultrasound exploration to be one of the most accessible, safe, and fast investigations.

The General Electric equipment in the MedicalES Center allows for performing complex ultrasound explorations at the level of numerous anatomical segments:

  • Abdominal ultrasound – the standard examination of choice in the liver, biliary, renal, pancreatic, or genital pathology – using convex transducers or the special transducer for the endocavitary ultrasound.
    Using the linear transducer, the thyroid, and the mammary gland can be explored, and the ultrasound of soft parts can be performed, as well as the vascular ultrasound (of the vessels of the neck and the peripheral vessels) using the power Doppler and color Doppler techniques.
  • Cardiac ultrasound can be done using all modern techniques: B-mode, color and pulsed Doppler are today an indispensable part of a complete cardiological consultation.

Fetal morphology

The 3D/4D techniques that use a special type of transducer in our equipment, allow on the one hand to follow the pregnancy from a young age, the early identification of certain fetal malformations, and on the other hand to reveal some morphological details on real-time that practically parents “know their fetus” before it is born.

Voluson E6

In the MedicalES Izvor center, ultrasound investigations are performed with top-of-the-range ultrasound machines produced by General Electric. Voluson E6 is the most performing ultrasound machine, ultra-specialized in 3D/4D examinations, and has the most advanced hardware and software technologies to obtain spectacular images of your future baby, even from the first trimester of pregnancy.

Also, the ultrasound machine is equipped with the most advanced probe technology for examining the breast and soft tissue – which gives a precise resolution regarding the anatomical details of the breast, musculoskeletal regions, or soft parts.

VividT8 Pro

The VividT8 Pro echocardiograph is ultra-specialized in cardio-vascular examinations, offering the clearest imaging details of the heart and vascular system, with state-of-the-art technologies such as DopplerTissue that allow the evaluation of global systolic cardiac function.

Corometrics 172

The MedicalES Izvor clinic has a General Electric Corometrics 172 cardiotocograph manufactured in 2017, offering expectant mothers the opportunity to perform non-stress fetal tests. The Corometrics 172 system is an extremely precise piece of equipment and can also be used for twin pregnancies.

The non-stress fetal test (NST or cardiotocograph) is a non-invasive test performed to evaluate the health status of the fetus, especially in high-risk cestodes, and involves monitoring the fetal heart rate, fetal movements, and heart rate changes during fetal movements. The purpose of electronic fetal monitoring for prenatal testing is to differentiate the fetus that tolerates the intrauterine environment well, from the fetus that can be put at risk and that requires further evaluation or delivery.

Vinno e10

Vinno E10

In the Riverside 1 clinic, there is the Vinno E10 ultrasound machine, which perfectly includes the tools and mechanisms of a fast and efficient method of ultrasonographic diagnosis. The basic technology of the Vinno E10 ultrasound machine, the platform with RF modulation, an innovation of the Vinno company – VISION IN INNOVATION – is the basis of the superior quality of the image, the signal processing being of remarkable accuracy.

The VinnoCloud platform, through the Artificial Intelligence functions of automatic diagnosis, helps the specialist to make the decision quickly and safely. Vinno E10 is an ultrasound machine whose performance, flexible configuration, and compact design meet a variety of clinical requirements and ensure a reliable diagnosis.

Every year there are 2.08 million new cases of breast cancer, and unfortunately, 627,000 women die from this fatal disease. The late diagnosis of these tumors is one of the factors that influence the figures above.

The involvement of VINNO engineers in the prevention of this disease among women and in the continuous development of ultrasonography gave birth to VAid technology.

Unique technology, a VINNO innovation, helps in the early discovery of a breast lesion, identifying a correct and important diagnosis for the life and safety of the patient, through an artificial intelligence system for the automatic detection of any breast lesion.

VINNO uses the FLYINSONO platform data from hundreds and thousands of examinations to establish the characteristics of breast lesions scanned and entered into the system and allow their analysis to establish the probability that the lesion is malignant or benign.
The self-learning algorithm used (“Artificial Intelligence”) can improve the accuracy of the diagnostic image analysis results by providing the analysis, segmentation, and evaluation of the lesion characteristics.

Preparing patients for ultrasound

To obtain a good visualization of the organs/vessels, it is recommended:

  • not to eat or consume coffee or acidic juices 6 hours before the investigation;
  • you can drink some still water (a glass)
  • on the day before the investigation, we recommend taking the following medicine: Sab Simplex or Espumisan: 1 tablespoon in the evening before the examination and 1 tablespoon 3 hours before the examination; Debridad, tablet 100 mg: 1 cpr x 3/day.

To obtain a good visualization of the organs/vessels, it is recommended:

  • not to eat or consume coffee or acidic juices 6 hours before the investigation;
  • 1 hour before the investigation, drink 1 liter of still water within 30 minutes and do not urinate, even if you feel this way; thus, the bladder will be full at the time of the investigation.
  • on the day before the investigation, we recommend taking the following medicine: Sab Simplex or Espumisan: 1 tablespoon in the evening before the examination and 1 tablespoon 3 hours before the examination; Debridat, tablet 100 mg: 1 cpr x 3/day.
