Want to make sure you’re healthy? One of the ways to do this is an ultrasound examination. Echoscopy (or ultrasound examination) – the examination of various organs with ultrasound waves in order to determine the condition of the examined tissues, to confirm or deny the diagnosis. An ultrasound examination is a painless and simple way to check your health. At Socrates Clinic, ultrasound examinations are performed with the advanced Q40 ultrasound machine, which generates ultrasound waves that reflect off the tissues and return to the ultrasound transducer, where electrical impulses create an image on the screen. In this way, the doctor evaluates the image and receives detailed information about your state of health.
Who are ultrasound examinations suitable for?
Echoscopy can be performed for anyone who seeks to find out the exact diagnosis of the disease or simply for a preventive check-up. There are no age or gender restrictions.
Who are ultrasound examinations not suitable for?
Ultrasound examinations are available for everyone, but they are not usually used to examine the condition of the lungs, stomach, intestines or bones (ultrasound does not travel well through air and bones are too hard). X-ray or magnetic resonance imaging is used to diagnose pathologies of these organs.
