Medical sonography is an ultrasound-based diagnostic technology,
which enables a secure “insight” into your internal organs.
The size and structure of muscles, tendons, and many organs can be mapped in real-time without discomfort or side effects for the patient.
This method has been practiced for over 50 years and is one of the most widely used diagnostic methods in modern medicine.
A transducer is placed directly onto the skin of the patient with a water based gel.
Some typical examples of ultrasound examinations: Painful kidney stones or gallstones can be made visible and their size can be securely registered.
Changes in the liver and pancreas can also be recognized, as well as an extension of the abdominal aorta (aneurysm).
So-called residual urine is easily detected in the examination of the urinary bladder.
With a special transducer that operates on a different frequency, nodules and cysts of the thyroid can be made visible.
