Ultrasound diagnostics is one of the most important in the examination of the internal organs of a person.
Ultrasound research methods make it possible to more accurately solve the problems of diagnosing a significant number of diseases: cardiovascular, digestive, genitourinary systems, as well as obtain valuable information in oncology, neurology, ophthalmology, obstetrics and gynecology:
detection of pathology of the pelvic organs (diseases of the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, cervix, detection of tumors and ovarian cysts, polycystic ovary disease, uterine fibroids, endometrial hyperplastic processes, polyps of the uterus and cervix, etc.);
control of the process of maturation of follicles (eggs) in the ovary, the usefulness of the cyclic restructuring of the endometrium;
diagnosis and determination of the duration of pregnancy, exclusion of ectopic pregnancy;
diagnosis of fetal development (fetal ultrasound).
Benefits of Ultrasound Examination:
relative simplicity of the procedure;
can be repeated several times, despite the complete lack of ionizing radiation;
the reliability of the results obtained;
ease and ease of use.
A wide range of programs help the doctor to properly set up and maintain the ultrasound machine, support during the study, provide a high level consistency and reproducibility of results.
The principle of operation is to transmit high-frequency sound impulses to the patient’s body. As it propagates through the body, ultrasound reaches the boundaries between tissues of different densities, from which waves are reflected in different ways. These echoes are recorded by a special sensor and then displayed on the monitor in the form of an image. The study is carried out using an ultrasonic transducer that transmits and receives echoes.
