Medical Imaging Services

Medical Imaging shows pathologies of the organelles by using ultrasound waves and X-Rays.
Our Imaging services are: Conventianal X-Ray and Computed Radiography, Digital Mammography, Ultrasonography and Color Doppler Ultrasonography, Bone Mineral Densitometry (BMD), Ecocardiography, Histerosalpingography (HSG)

Our Service Areas

Ecocardiography is an ultrasonic technique based diagnostic test to examine the inner structure and physiologic functioning of the hearth. The images are obtained by a transducer which makes it possible to see the image in different views.
An ecocardiograpy is performed in order to;
  • To assess the heart rhythm to diagnose the reasons of the  enlargening of the heart, unexplained chest pain, shortness of breath or irregular heartbeat and murmurs,
  • To measure the shapes and dimensions of the cavities of heart,
  • To measure the  thickness and movements of heart walls,
  • To assess the shapes and functions of the  heart walves,
  • To assess the functions of the artificial heart  walves,
  • To examine the hart functions,
  • To diagnose the cardiomyopathies and diseases affecting the heart muscles,
  • To assess  the thrombus and tumors in the heart
  • To check  the congenital heart diseases or the results of the surgical treatments done for the treatment of these diseases,
  • To assess the cardiac functions after a heart attack,
  • To asses the pericardial membrane structıure and thickness after a pericardial fluid accumulation,
  • To assess the diameter and structures of the pulmonary arteries.
Bone Mineral Densitometry measures bone mineral density by using low dose x- rays. It is used to assess the risk of osteoporosis which is a health condution  causing bone fracture. It is also called the DEXA Scan.
The principle of ultrasonography is to bring out the image by the reflectancy obtained by high frequency ultrasonofraphic waves sent to the tissue by the ultrasonography machine. Breast, testis, prostate, thyroid, salivary glands, bladder, muscles, tendons, other soft tissues ,liver, pancreas, kidney, intestines,transvaginal, pelvic , surface, brain examinations before the fontanel tissue formation of the newborns, newborn hip dislocations may be done by this technique.
Arteries and veins in color can be examined noninvasively by this technique. It has a wide diagnostic range of atherosclerotic cases which are caused by the obstruction and narrowing of the arteries of the neck carrying blood to the brain, thus, causing  infarcts and strokes. It also gives chance to diagnose the arterial and venous obstructions causing varicosis.  It is also a very effective diagnostic tool for renal arterial defects, causing hypertension, aneuysms, pathologies related to eye vessels, inefficient erectile functions due to vascular causes and discriminating the benign and malign tumors.
Breast cancer is the most abundant cancer in women. Early diagnosis increases the success of the treatment in most of the patients. Thus,  mammography is a wide performed diagnostic tool in breast cancer throughout the World.
The image is obtained by X-Rays in mammography. However, digital mammography is technically designed differently from the other X-ray based machines. The harmful effects of x-ray to the delicate tissue of the breast has been reduced to minimum. Digital mammography also gives the radiologists the chance to examine the tissue in different views.
Sometimes, It is also reccomended to examine the breast with ultrasonographic technique to give more precise results.
It is an X-ray test to visualise the inside walls ot the uterus  and/or  fallopian tubes to see if there is a block preventing oocytes,  meet the sperm .
Studies have shown that in 30% of the HSG subjected cases,  the blockage in fallopian tubes are opened, thus, the infertility due to this problem has been solved .
A cylindyric catheter is used to send an opaque material through the cervix to the uterus. This opaque liquid material is seen under x-ray examination. As the opaque liquid takes the shape of the the uterus by filling into the  inner walls , it flows through the fallopian tubes. If there is a blockage it either opens this blocage by the pressure it exerts or cannot pass the blocage. All this can be visualised under x-ray and this gives an information about the treatment protocol of   female infertility.
This procedure therefore,  is a routine  diagnosis of one of  the possible reasons for female infertility.
The procedure takes approximately 5-10 minutes and a very little pain may be felt when the opaque material is passing through the fallopian tubes. This pain is very short and it is like the menstrual pain  taking only 5 minutes to relieve.
If the patient is too sensitive to pain, a very light sedation may be done by an anesthesiologist.
Mostly, the appropriate time for this test is a few days after the last mensturation.
Radiography is composed of an X-Ray and Computed Radiography Technology to obtain a digital image. This technique is used in order to replace the conventional casette technology and obtaining a latent image on a special plaque which absorbes the radiation to be imaged,  by a unit which converts the radiation to a digital image. This system reduces the radiation dosage which the patient is exposed and still obtains a precise image.
