Activities

DEPARTMENT OF CLASSIC IMAGING

The Department of Classic Imaging has a Digital X-ray machine with fully automated options for the rapid performance of examinations as well as the ability of full leg full spine imaging with EASYSTICH technology.

Moreover, the Department has a state-of-the-art system for measuring bone density and muscle mass.

 

MAMMOGRAPHY DEPARTMENT 

The Department has a  Modern Digital Mammography System, with which, apart from mammograms, Stereotactic biopsies and preoperative targeting of the lesion are performed (HOOK placement)

 

ULTRASOUND DEPARTMENT 

The department has state-of-the-art ultrasound systems with cutting edge technology for performing all the classic and specialized ultrasonography examinations. Specifically:

  • Elastography
  • Use of Contrast Media
  • Vessel Triplex
  • High Resolution Breast Ultrasound

At the same time, a variety of ultrasound-guided invasive procedures are performed (FNA, biopsies, effusion drainage, etc.,) while it has state-of-the-art equipment for performing Targeted Prostate biopsy using Fusion Biopsy Technique.

 

COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY DEPARTMENT 

It has two state-of-the-art 128 and 64-slice computed tomography scanners for conducting examinations with the lowest possible radiation and the maximum imaging quality. The department performs all specialized CT scans:

  • Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography
  • Computed Pyelography
  • Enterography
  • Three-Dimensional Imaging of the Musculoskeletal System

 

MAGNETIC RESONANCE DEPARTMENT

It has two state-of-the-art 1.5 Tesla magnetic resonance imaging scanners with cutting edge technology.

  • SIEMENS Aera, friendly to claustrophobics
  • PHILIPS D-stream, the only magnetic resonance imaging scanner with purely digital technology.

The department performs all routine examinations as well as specialized examinations. Specifically:

Specialized examinations of the central nervous system:

  • Spectroscopy
  • Perfusion
  • CSF Flow Measurement
  • Dementia - Neurodegenerative diseases

Specialized examinations of other anatomical areas:

  • Multiparametric MRI of the prostate
  • Magnetic Resonance Enterography
  • Magnetic Resonance Pyelography
  • Magnetic Resonance Mammography
  • Three-Dimensional Biliary Tree Imaging – MRCP
  • Assessment of Liver Fat and Iron Load
  • Angiography
  • Rectal Neoplasm Staging 

 

INTERVENTIONAL RADIOLOGY DEPARTMENT

Interventional radiology consists a further specialization of the Clinical Radiology specialty. The interventions are performed by image-guided catheterization or paracentesis using specific catheters and devices. Local anesthesia or mild sedation (conscious sedation) is usually used and no surgical incision is required.

General procedures:

  • Guided organ biopsies
  • Paracentesis / drainage of Effusions, Fluids, Abscesses, etc.
  • Cyst Paracentesis / Drainage

 

Vascular procedures:

  • Diagnostic Angiography (arteriography, venography)
  • Peripheral Vascular Angioplasty (balloon, stent)
  • Angioplasty and opening of clotted dialysis fistula
  • Treatment of aortic and peripheral vascular aneurysms or pseudoaneurysms
  • Peripheral vascular Thrombolysis – Thrombectomy
  • Treatment of Vein Thrombosis, Pulmonary Embolism
  • Inferior Vena Cava Filter (placement and removal)
  • Embolization of Vascular Malformations, Hemangiomas, etc.
  • Treatment of hemorrhages
  • Intravascular foreign body retrieval
  • Placement of Central Venous Catheters, Hemodialysis Catheters, picc, port,etc.

 

Hepatobiliary procedures:

  • Cholangiography - Biliary drainage and Stent Placement
  • Liver chemoembolization
  • Thermal ablation of liver tumors (metastases or primary)
  • Percutaneous Port Placement for Selective Arterial Chemotherapy
  • Transjugular liver biopsy
  • Percutaneous Cholecystostomy
  • Portal Vein Interventions (thrombolysis, embolization, angioplasty)
  • Transjugular intrahepatic porto-systemic shunt (TIPSS)

 

Genitourinary procedures:

  • Percutaneous Nephrostomy
  • Ureteral JJ Stent placement
  • Treatment of Kidney Tumors (Embolization, thermal ablation, cryoablation)
  • Embolization of Spermatic Veins in Varicocele
  • Embolization of the Ovarian or Iliac Veins for Pelvic Congestion Syndrome
  • Fibroid Embolization
  • Transjugular Renal Biopsy

 

Respiratory system procedures:

  • Pneumothorax, Pleural Effusion Drainage
  • Embolization in Hemoptysis

 

Digestive system procedures:

  • Gastrostomy and Gastrojejunostomy
  • Draining of abscesses
  • Nasojejunal Feeding Catheter
  • Treatment of Digestive System Hemorrhages
