The Hospital’s Radiology Department offers a comprehensive list of test including:
- Digital x-rays
- Computer Tomography (Spiral-CT)
Top of the range Computer Tomography equipment operated by trained technicians.
Screening in the laboratory can be done for the pharynx, oesophagus, stomach, small & large bowel (Barium enema) phlebography and IV Pyelography.
Digital Mammography combined with Ultrasonography, Stereotactic localization of breast lesions is also carried out in the radiology laboratory.
Ultrasonography is used for general and specialised investigations of the upper & lower abdomen, gynaecological, breast, renal, thyroid, salivary glands and the musculoskeletal systems.
INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGY SERVICES
- No General Anesthesia
- Less Risks and Complications
- Minimized Pain and Return Time in Everyday Life
- Lower cost
- Quickly, Effective and Safe
The transdermal biopsy is BRIEF and is performed with the SAFETY provided by the imaging ultrasound or CT scan. The whole procedure is done under ULTIMATE CONDITIONS and with LOCAL ANALYSIS so that the patient is awake and at the same time achieving MINIMIZATION OF PAIN. When local anesthesia occurs, it can feel a pinch, which lasts a little, and then the area becomes numb.
The doctor advances a fine needle by continuously monitoring its course and avoiding injury to vital organs or vessels in the area. This is the safety target that is of interest to you. Then the needle is placed at the exact point of the lesion and the material is taken (cells or a piece of a few millimeters) which will then be sent to the pathologist for study and final diagnosis.

The First Examinations of the Newborn
Ultrasound imaging of the hips can be done ideally from the first days of birth until the 8th week. It may also occur at an older age, although this depends on the appearance of the osteoarthritis nuclei. What parents need to know is that their baby does not feel pain though it can react to the test. It is used in the early diagnosis of hip developmental dysplasia and this is of great importance because the condition at its initial stage can be treated conservatively and painlessly with special splints. So this test can determine the type of treatment to be chosen, conservative or surgical, and the outcome of the treatment. With this logic, hip ultrasound has become a mandatory screening test in neonates in many European countries.
Developmental dysplasia (DDH) is a multifactorial hip disease which can occur from simple hip joint relaxation to severe joint deformity. After birth, hip instability is observed in 2% of the newborns, while dysplasia is 0.1%. The most common factors favoring the onset of the disease are twin pregnancy, positive parental history, hypothalamus and oligohydramnios. It is 4-8 times more common in girls and 3 times more often located in the left hip. Forgotten cases will usually require surgical treatment. Previously, the delayed diagnosis of developmental dysplasia led many children to disability because the clinical examination did not accompany an imaging examination such as contemporary ultrasound.
