Blood tests and other examinations provide information on the state of health, however sometimes it is necessary to obtain precise information about the state of internal organs and the extent of damage done by illness to choose the most effective method of treatment, it is necessary “to examine the illness from the inside.”
Computed tomography (CT) or, more commonly known as computer tomography, is a method of X-ray, which provides us with cross-sectional images of very thin layer of tissue of human body parts and organs. In addition, they can be reconstructed in any plane and it is possible to obtain two-dimensional and three-dimensional pictures. By analysing the images, it is possible to obtain precise information about organ damage and the extent of it.
Computed tomography can examine:
High quality and high resolution examinations, with significantly reduced dose of radiation for the patient, is provided by the latest model 64 layer General Electric Optima 660 computed tomography machine. In addition, this machine can carry out complex examinations with radiopaque, blood vessel computed tomography angiography and cardiac computed tomography coronarography.
The images obtained during the examination are analysed by highly qualified specialist, who prepare accurate and detailed description of the obtained image, which provides information for further diagnosis and treatment.
The treating doctor refers the patient to computed tomography examination. The doctor will also inform the patient about the activities that need to be carried out to prepare for the computed tomography examination. However, the specialist, who will perform the computed tomography examination, will tell the patient about the examination procedure and provide guidance about the activities to be carried out during the examination.
Computed tomography examination is not painful and depending on part of the body being examined, it usually last 15-40 minutes. The results of the examination consist of two parts (examination and the description of the radiologist), the images can be obtained immediately after the examination, the description can be received within one working day. The patient personally agrees on how the results will be received at the clinics reception.
Computed tomography examination is not recommended more than 2-3 times a year.
