ULTRASOUND EXAMINATION AT “MED-ELIT”, m. IVANO-FRANKIVSK
Ultrasound examination (UZD) – it is one of the main methods of research in medicine, which is based on the reading by a special sensor of ultrasonic waves, which are reflected differently from body tissues and the boundaries between tissues. A special device processes the received information and displays it as a graphic image on the screen. This method has practically no contraindications, does not require special preparation and does not take much time.
Since ultrasound belongs to invasive diagnostic methods, patients do not have a rehabilitation period and complications after the procedure, which makes the technique as accessible as possible and quite common in medicine.
How often should you undergo routine check-ups?
Every year, women and men are recommended to undergo preventive examinations at the Med-Elite medical center to detect reproductive health pathologies.
Such reviews include:
- Ultrasound for women. Once every 6-12 months, undergo ultrasound of the pelvic organs, ultrasound of the thyroid gland. Up to the age of 40, it is desirable to undergo an ultrasound of the mammary glands every year;
- Ultrasound for men. Once every 6-12 months, depending on the individual characteristics of the patient, you should undergo ultrasound of the prostate, ultrasound of the scrotum, and ultrasound of the bladder;
- Early diagnosis helps detect pathologies when they can be effectively treated.
Symptoms for which ultrasound is recommended?
Ultrasound of internal organs should be done if you experience persistent alarming symptoms:
- Pain in the lower abdomen (gynecological ultrasound, pelvic ultrasound);
- Pain in the navel area (abdominal ultrasound);
- Frequent urination, lower back pain (ultrasound of the kidneys and bladder);
- Unpleasant sensations in the area of the heart (echocardiography);
- Pain when walking (ultrasound of the hip joint);
- Severe pain in the limbs, limited movement of arms and legs.
Also, the doctor can prescribe an ultrasound in the absence of painful symptoms, but in the presence of other signs of the disease, for example, an ultrasound of the thyroid gland, an ultrasound of the kidneys, an ultrasound of the heart, etc. is prescribed.
What does ultrasound show and why should it be performed?
Ultrasound is a research method based on the action of ultrasonic waves. They help to display the state of the internal organs on the monitor and to visually see exactly what processes are taking place with them.
Patients often ask: how often can ultrasound be done? In fact, there are no limitations to this study. Unlike X-rays, ultrasound waves are completely safe for the body. Therefore, ultrasound can be done as many times as necessary. Even pregnant women are allowed to do ultrasound more often than 3 times at different periods of gestation, if there is a need for it.
Ultrasound is useful not only for routine examinations, but also for acute conditions. It helps to quickly establish the cause of pain and start timely treatment.
