Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) allows visualization of the smallest details in the human body without using x-rays MRI advantages: – Non-hazardous to the human body; – Detect very small lesions – 1mm, allowing a high diagnostic accuracy; Equipment used in our centers are top class nuclear magnetic resonance equipment, being equipped with the latest investigations software that enable high fidelity examination of all anatomical regions of the body in a very short time.

A computed tomography (CT) is a diagnostic imaging method that uses X-rays to make detailed images of body structures. Computed tomography allows high quality images with high accuracy in a very short time, so you can quickly get a proper diagnosis. 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. Modern ultrasonographic equipment, even if expensive enough, allows ultrasound exploration to be one of the most affordable, safe, and fast investigations. read more…
Mammography is a special method of breast imaging especially for women over 35 years of age. It is also the screening method used in early detection of breast cancer in women over 50 years of age. Irradiation following a mammogram is very small and without pathological consequences. Two incidents (projections) are generally used to perform this investigation: Craniocaudal (vertical) – after which the images of the central and medial area of ​​the oblique medial breast are observed – resulting in images of the entire gland In some cases, additional incidents may be made to specify the diagnosis. Optimal exposition requires a compression of the breast that can be perceived as the discomfort of the moment by some patients. Important to know before mammography: For early breast cancer screening in women over 40 years of age, it is recommended to perform mammography at 2 years and mammary ultrasound – annually read more…
DEXA bone densitometry – Measurement of bone mineral density 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. Osteoporosis is characterized by decreased bone mineral density, with consequent decrease in bone strength and increased risk of fracture. Early diagnosis of DEXA osteodensitometry is very important because there are currently methods to stop the loss of bone mass and consequently to reduce the complications of the disease. The recommendation of the investigation is done by the family doctor / specialist (orthopedist, internist, rheumatologist, endocrinologist) when the patient shows signs of a bone disease. Osteodensitometry is recommended for women after menopause, but also for men over the age of 50 years, especially if they are smokers or long-term cortisone treatment. read more…
