Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (MRI) is a state-of-the-art imaging technique that uses a powerful magnetic field and radio wave to provide high-resolution images of the selected human body region, providing anatomical details and relevant pathology or lesion accurately and accurately. The technique does not use ionizing radiation (X-rays) and is considered safe for the patient, especially for people requiring multiple serial exams to track their affections. The equipment used in our centers is new generation, offering high resolution images. Read more… How do I prepare for MRI?
What is computed tomography (CT)?
- Method of diagnosis for images that uses X-rays to obtain detailed images, accurate of internal organs;
- The technique is completely atraumatic and minimally invasive ((it is possible to inject intravenous iodinated contrast dye);
- The amount of X-radiation is optimized by the device to get the most of the patient’s medical information with minimum exposure;
- CT is used for diagnosis in any region of the body (head, neck, chest, abdomen, pelvis, musculoskeletal, etc);
- Our clinics are equipped with the latest multislice CT equipment
- The obtained images can be reconstructed in three dimensions then, which allowing a high assessment of investigated organs. Read more…
Ultrasound (Ecography) is a more and more widespread imaging technique, with no diagnosis of many medical and surgical conditions today unthinkable. It is a “real-time” diagnostic method based on the differential transmission of ultrasound through various types of tissue.
The ultrasound technique is non-invasive to the human body, therefore it is repeatable whenever it is needed to monitor a patient and has become an extremely useful tool for the clinician.
Ultrasound can be performed on all parenchymal organs, does not require special patient preparation, making possible a diagnosis of high accuracy in a wide range of diseases.Read more…
