Ultrasound Imaging Department
Due to its high informativeness, noninvasiveness, quick performance, the possibility of multiple repetition without harm to the patient`s health ultrasound examination takes one of the leading places among examination methods. With the introduction of new computer technologies, the diagnostic and visualization capacities of ultrasound method have considerably improved, enabling to use it not only for diagnostic purposes and monitoring the effectiveness of conducted treatment (for screening control, enabling to determine the need for further examination ant treatment of the patient), but also as visual control for carrying out some medical procedures and interventions.
In Ultrasound Diagnostics Department of MC Nairi the highly qualified specialists in the field of radiology are working, who had passed their training as in CIS countries, so in abroad (the USA, Philadelphia, Austria, France, Germany) and have many years of experience in this field. The experience shows, that even in the absence of a complaint the US examinations may reveal some kind of abnormalities in various structures and organs. Preventive examinations are necessary to pass once a year (or every 6 months) for the timely diagnosis and treatment.
Ultrasound Diagnostics Department of MC Nairi is equipped with high and expert class modern stationary and portable equipment of ultrasound diagnostics with the presence of Siemens multi-frequency transducers and modern technologies (Acuson, Antares, Siemens 200, S-3000) with wide range of diagnostic capacities, excellent degree of visualization, Doppler scan programs, panoramic scanning, volumetric image construction in real time.
High-level of visualization of US equipment allows to increase detectability of pathologies, to examine the smallest tissue structure more precise and clearer and increase the effectiveness of differential diagnosis, which increases detectability of diseases at earlier stages of development and provide more effective treatment.
In MC Nairi are carried out all existing US examinations:
- US examination of abdominal cavity organs
- kidney, adrenal glands
