X-rays and ultrasound

Imaging techniques such as X-rays and ultrasound are valuable diagnostic tools in confirming diagnoses from a check-up, and provide non-invasive imaging of the musculoskeletal system.

DX-ray imaging is the easiest and most cost-effective type of joint imaging, and addresses basic questions as to whether a joint has been fractured in a fundamental and preliminary examination before more specialised examinations might be considered. These days, X-ray images are created in digital format; this still requires X-rays, but the dose is significantly lower than in “analogue” X-ray imaging. Other advantages of digital radiography are shorter development times without chemicals as well as the ability to archive X-ray images for years without any loss in quality.

Ultrasound is used for examining the musculoskeletal system in sports medicine, and has proven its safety in obstetrics. Ultrasound allows for very accurate musculoskeletal system imaging – joints, muscles, and tendons are very well-defined on an ultrasound image. Major bruising in muscle tissue can be accurately localised for accurate drainage. In contrast to X-rays, structures can be moved during the examination, allowing for a functional diagnosis.

We provide complete internal medical ultrasound scans showing the abdominal organs – liver, spleen, kidney, stomach, intestine, bladder – and blood vessels, thyroid and lymph nodes at our radiological institute.
