MRI

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a method of scanning a human body using magnetic fields and radio waves to obtain high quality images that help in diagnosing a wide range of human states.

Magnetic-nuclear tomography General Electric Healthcare Optima MR 450W 1,5 T is a unique device equipped with all modern optimized programs.

It allows conducting examination in any area (head, spine, abdomen, joints, vessels, etc.) at the highest level, receiving high-quality images and, accordingly, helps in making the right diagnosis.

The advantages of Magnetic Nuclear Tomography GE Healthcare Optima MR 450W 1.5 T are the followings:

1) Silent Scan program allows to conduct surveys in silent mode.

2) There are no restrictions for the examination of overweight patients (the device’s capabilities allow to receive patients up to 227 kg)

3) The maximum diameter of the magnetic channel does not create any obstacles for the examination of patients with claustrophobia.

4) All the investigated areas can be enhanced, it allows a more detailed study of the tissues structure.

CT

Computed tomography (CT) is one of the key methods of diagnosing internal organs and systems, using multilayer scanning through x-rays.

The computer tomography General Electric Optima 660 128 Slice has a number of advantages:

1) It can be used to obtain high-resolution images at optimal radiation load.

2) There are no restrictions on the age and weight of patients.

3) A wide range of procedures, including cardiological, angiographic, orthopedic, brain, thorax, abdominal examinations.

4) The ability to produce 128 slices per 1 revolution gantry.

 

Densitometry is a non-invasive method of determining bone mineral density. It is used to measure calcium in bone, which is its main structural element. First of all, data on the condition of the spine and neck of the femur is vital, as the fractures of these areas are most dangerous and fraught with loss of motor activity for a long time.

Experts advise to undergo densitometry biennial in order to assess the dynamics of changes in bone density in a timely manner.

If you start to lose bone mass, densitometry will help to reveal it in time.
The densitometric examination is likely to be delayed in cases of pregnancy or previous studies using contrast agents.

What does densitometry show?

Bone densitometry shows two indicators: T-score and Z-score. The first is the result of comparing the density of the patient’s bone tissue with the reference indicator. The norm is 1 point or more. T-score in the range from -1 to -2.5 is the reason for the diagnosis of “osteopenia” – low mineral density. Less than -2.5 is an osteoporosis with a high risk of fractures. Z-score is the result of comparing the density of the patient’s bone mass with the average index of his/her age group. If the Z-score is too high or low, additional medical examinations are prescribed: radiography, biochemical examination or bone biopsy.

Mammography is a noninvasive breast examination that is indicated to all women from the age of 40, and also in the presence of nodes, seals, skin changes, and discharge from the nipples in one or both mammary glands. Mammography is recommended for all women with chronic gynecological diseases. The examination is necessary for early diagnosis of various breast tumors, it is performed on an outpatient basis and is a kind of x-ray. The resulting image is recorded on a DVD disc or fixated in some other way.

The procedure takes no more than 10 minutes. For image, the breast should be fixed between two slats and slightly compressed. The image is made in two projections in order to make possible to accurately determine the location of the tumor, if it is found. Since symmetry is one of the factors of diagnosis, it is always necessary to examine both mammary glands.

Mammography results

Mammography reveals the presence of changes in the tissues of the mammary glands, allows to assess their size, nature and prevalence in the earliest stages. The results of mammography can be judged only by a specialist, therefore the image requires description. The examination result can be positive, negative, false positive or false negative. The correctness of the result largely depends on the doctor who will describe the image. Mammography, the results of which have been described as positive, may additionally require an ultrasound, a laboratory test or a biopsy.

Mammography ALPHA ST (analog)

Alpha ST is a high-quality x-ray mammography apparatus designed for preventive and diagnostic examinations. The quality of images is sufficient to treat a patient

The combination of The Total Exposure Control (TEC) and excellent phototimer allows to adjust all parameters to obtain the best contrast of breast images with both dense and fatty tissue. It allows to avoid dangerous exposure and incorrect settings – now you can focus only on the patient.
Eight unique positions of the AEC detector simplify positioning and highlighting the densest areas of the breast.
