An ultrasound scan (USG) is a non-invasive and painless method of imaging organs using ultrasound waves. We perform ultrasound examinations using the Philips Affiniti 70 and GE Voluson E8 Expert devices.
The Carolina Medical Center ultrasound laboratory carries out ultrasound examinations of:
- all joints,
- tendons, muscles,
- vascular tests,
- examinations of the abdominal cavity.
Under ultrasound control, all invasive procedures are also performed, such as injections of drugs, intra-articular contrasts, evacuation of hematomas and material for microscopic and bacteriological examinations, and collection of synovial fluid for microscopic evaluation for the presence of crystals (e.g., uric acid).
