MRI

The SIGNA Voyager magnetic resonance system, produced by General Electric, revolutionizes medical imaging. Equipped with TDI (Total Digital Imaging) technology, Signa Voyager offers an exceptional quality of the acquired images, being clearly superior to the classic magnetic resonance systems. This system increases the productivity of the medical imaging department, and through its 70 cm aperture and the antennas that use the latest technologies, ensure increased patient comfort. The new SIGNA Works platform redefines productivity for all acquisition techniques available on the magnetic resonance system. The standard applications available on the Signa Voyager system represent an extensive set of high quality and high efficiency capabilities that allow obtaining the desired results for the entire area of ​​examinations (neurology, body, cardiovascular, orthopedics, senology, oncology, pediatrics). SIGNA Voyager turns scanning into a patient-free experience. They can breathe freely thanks to the Auto Navigator technology that is compatible with the Turbo LAVA and Turbo LAVA Flex sequences, thus allowing a complete abdominal examination, with free breathing, including in the case of contrasting sequences. Using Propeller technology, the SIGNA Voyager system allows the acquisition without movement artifacts for the whole body, thus reducing the patient’s stress dose. The Inhance Suite and 3D ASL applications allow the acquisition of angiography and perfusion images without the need to inject patients with contrast agent, thus eliminating the risks associated with this type of examination, as well as the discomfort caused to patients due to the injection. Using the Dixon technique, available for body, musculoskeletal, breast, spine imaging (Ideal Flex, Lava Flex, Vibrant Flex), it is possible to acquire four different contrasts in a single scan, thus reducing the time required for examinations and, implicitly, the time spent by the patient inside the magnetic resonance system.

Computed Tomography

Computed tomography (CT) is an imaging diagnostic method that uses X-rays to take detailed images of body structures. Computed tomography allows obtaining very accurate images in a very short time, so that a correct diagnosis can be obtained quickly. Computed tomography (CT) can examine any segment of the body, such as the head, cervical region, chest, abdomen, pelvis or limbs. Different organs of the body can be investigated in detail, such as the liver, pancreas, intestines, kidneys, bladder, adrenal glands, lungs and heart. Blood vessels, bones and spinal cord can also be studied. The state-of-the-art 128-slice CT Optima 660 General Electric is the perfect solution for expanding clinical exploration capabilities, from simple to complex, thanks to its outstanding scanning speed and the options the device comes with. The equipment is equipped with a modern technology to reduce the radiation dose administered to the patient. Options like Smart Dose, 3D mA modulation, Organ dose modulation help to decrease the dose administered to the patient. CT Optima 660 offers a reliable diagnosis, detecting the smallest details at a low radiation dose. The accuracy of the diagnosis is ensured by the most complex and modern post-processing station on the market, Advanced Workstation.

DEXA bone densitometry

Bone Osteodensitometry is the most modern Paraclinical method measuring bone mineral density (calcium content) thus being able to establish the diagnosis of osteoporosis, monitoring the evolution of the disease and the treatment effectiveness. The realization of bone densitometry is recommended for postmenopausal women but also for men over the age of 50, especially if they are smokers or have received long-term treatment with cortisone. The realization of bone densitometry involves scanning the body with X-rays, the irradiation dose being very small, while the precision and the sensitivity of the method are the maximum. The survey can be made in advance, by the early detection of predisposing factors and allows the quantification of bone mineral density throughout the skeleton – survey “whole – body” or rough fragility segments (hip, spine, forearm). The bone densitometry has the advantage that it requires no prior preparation, is non-invasive and painless.

Ultrasound

MedicalES clinics have General Electric Vivid T8 ultrasound – the best device for heart ultrasound – and General Electric Voluson E6 – the best ultrasound for general ultrasound, arteries and vessels, with software dedicated to fetal morphology. The General Electric equipments endowed by the MedicalES Centers allow the performance of complex ultrasound explorations at the level of numerous anatomical segments: -abdominal ultrasound – standard exploration of choice in liver, biliary, renal, pancreatic or genital pathology – using convex transducers or special transducer for endocavitary ultrasound; -using the linear transducer you can explore the thyroid, mammary gland, being able to perform soft tissue ultrasound, as well as vascular ultrasound (neck vessels and peripheral vessels) using power Doppler and color Doppler techniques; -ultrasound exploration in pregnancy reached an unimaginable degree of accuracy until a few years ago. The 3D / 4D techniques that use a special type of transducer in our equipment, allow on the one hand the tracking of pregnancy from an early age, the early identification of certain fetal malformations, and on the other hand the revelation of morphological details in real time that practically parents “know their fetus” before they are born; -cardiac ultrasound – using all modern techniques: module B, color and pulsed Doppler is today an indispensable part of a complete cardiological consultation.

Electromyography

Electromyography (EMG) is a medical procedure that consists in evaluating the function of skeletal muscles and nerves, being extremely important in diagnosing peripheral nervous system disorders.
