The laboratory is equipped with the Samsung RS 80A ultrasound imaging device, which offers ultrasound scanning, such as 3D imaging and elastography.
It covers the full range of diagnostic ultrasound scans (abdominal, breast, musculoskeletal, vascular, thyroid, pediatric ultrasound scans) and the entire spectrum of invasive ultrasound scans (biopsies, punctures, drainages, guided infusions).
Biopsy and paracentesis results available within 24 hours.
A unique innovation of our laboratory is the Coelis robotic biopsy system.
Ultrasound imaging is a medical imaging method that produces images of parts of the human body using ultrasound. Ultrasound imaging devices have an architecture similar to that of computers; they receive signals from a transceiver, process them and convert them into black-and-white or color images. The transceiver is the machine’s peripheral component which sends ultrasounds to the body in a direction specified by the examiner, and at the same time receives the reflections and converts them into images.
Each of the body’s tissues reacts differently to ultrasounds; they can either reflect, refract or “absorb” different amounts of waves than the ones they receive. So, after receiving the reflections and knowing the amount of waves sent, the computer assigns a color or a shade of gray to each tissue and displays them on a screen as images. These images are studied by the examiner, who in turn draws diagnostic conclusions.
It is on these basic principles that ultrasound imaging is based. It is also called ultrasound tomography, because the ultrasound sent by the transceiver is in a layer array and the computer makes images that look like actual incisions of the parts or organs being examined.
