X-ray in Ternopil: all types of digital radiography
Digital radiography (computer X-ray) is a modern method of radiological diagnosis of the structure of anatomical objects with further digital processing of the obtained image. It is many times superior to analogue radiography in terms of examination speed, diagnostic capabilities and level of safety. A digital image is produced almost instantly, has a high-resolution quality and is more informative.
The range of examinations on digital X-ray machines is quite large and makes it possible to diagnose even such pathologies that were previously detected by complex (often, invasive) methods.
You can undergo digital radiography in Ternopil at the Medical Centre Viasan.
On a modern AGFA DR 400 device (Belgium). By appointment.
Highly qualified radiologists carry out diagnostics.
The principle of computer X-ray consists of scanning anatomical structures with the help of X-rays or γ-rays, followed by digitization of the obtained image. On contrary to a classic X-ray, in digital X-ray photography, the impression is recorded not on X-ray film, but on a highly sensitive radiation detector. This makes it possible to significantly reduce the exposure time, radiation load and obtain a very high-quality image.
New technologies and high-quality equipment are fundamentally important in diagnostics. Analogue direct radiography is in many ways inferior to the digital one, so more and more medical centres are abandoning films, reagents and dark rooms, offering their patients an X-ray examination in a different, more advanced format – highly accurate, fast, comfortable and safe.
The AGFA DR 400 digital X-ray machine is:
• efficiency and less exposure — the picture is taken in just a few seconds;
• comfort — applications can be performed while the patient is sitting, standing or lying down;
• high-quality images, saved on reliable electronic media (CD-disk);
• the possibility to enlarge the picture, visualize the smallest details, examine questionable areas;
• ease of execution and broad diagnostic possibilities.
• to evaluate bone structures and internal organs;
• to detect neoplasms and metastases;
• to detect quickly an unknown focus of the inflammatory process;
• to diagnose congenital abnormalities of the spine;
• to detect diseases of the locomotor system;
• to identify and differentiate pathologies in any part of the body (lungs, ribs, skull, joints, bones, abdominal cavity, pelvis, etc.);
• to determine the location of foreign bodies.
Most often, special preparation is not required, except of examinations with the use of a contrast agent and examinations of the abdominal cavity. Each patient is informed about the nuances of preparation individually.
Digital radiography is widely used for diagnostics in various fields of medicine – neurology, traumatology, orthopaedics, rheumatology, gynaecology, pulmonology, endocrinology, otolaryngology, dentistry.
It is a mandatory preventive screening of the organs of the chest for early detection of tuberculosis and lung cancer (fluorography).
There are no absolute contraindications to digital radiography while pregnancy, lactation period and children's age are the relative ones. However, any X-ray examination must be justified by a doctor.
