Ultrasound Diagnostics Department

The Department has 5 rooms for ultrasound examination of polyclinic patients and one room for ultrasound examination of in-patients available. In addition, there is a room for puncture biopsy.

The department is equipped with up-to-date high and expert class apparatuses with multifrequency probes and modern technologies: broadband beam forming, super clear picture, super high definition, second tissue harmonic, and tissue Doppler.

Due to up-to-date technologies of expert class apparatuses itís possible to detect smaller masses, examine their internal structure more precisely, get clearer picture of these smallest masses and surrounding tissues. Thereby, the efficiency of diagnostics and differential diagnostics and detection of early pathology increases; the possibility of treatment planning taking into account clinical requirements arises.

Ultrasound is the most rapidly developing method of musculoskeletal system imaging. Constant development of ultrasound examination technologies broadens possibilities of its application and in a range of clinical situations makes it possible to replace magnetic resonance tomography or to supplement considerably the morphological picture of the disease.

The application of Doppler techniques (color and energetic Dopplers, continuous wave and pulse Dopplers) helps to assess reliably blood supply of organs and pathologic masses.

Our last acquisition is a VOLUSON-i portable digital universal ultrasound system with all the technologies of the ultrasound stationary expert class apparatus. Sterile covers for usual multifrequency probes make it possible to use the system for intraoperative examinations.

The Following General Ultrasound Examinations are Carried out at the Department:

  • ultrasound of the organs of abdominal cavity and retroperitoneal space,
  • ultrasound of urogenital system organs,
  • ultrasound of the thyroid and thymus glands,
  • ultrasound of mammary and salivary glands,
  • ultrasound of lymph nodes,
  • ultrasound of soft tissues and surface structures, joints, vessels and special ultrasound examinations and image processing techniques:
  • panoramic scanning
  • assessment of urodynamics of urinary tracts with the help of dopplerography,
  • digital 3D reconstruction,
  • ultrasound-controlled puncture biopsy Ė fine-needle aspiration biopsy
  • fine-needle aspiration biopsy of the thyroid and mammary glands,
  • fine-needle aspiration biopsy of lymph nodes of the neck and surface structures with further cytological examination of the taken smears trepan biopsy of the organs of the abdominal cavity and the prostate gland for histological verification of the diagnosis
  • In addition, RRCRM&HE has the opportunity for telemedicine consultation of patients with thyroid pathology for diagnosis specification at the Republican Center for Oncopathology of the Thyroid Gland in Minsk.

    Itís optimal to undergo ultrasound examination once a year. Herewith, they usually prescribe ultrasound examination of the thyroid gland, abdominal cavity organs, kidneys, small pelvis organs, and mammary glands. Such examination periodicity gives the opportunity to detect the disease of the organs available to ultrasound examination at the earliest stage when treatment is most effective and short-term.

    The quality of the ultrasound examination depends on thorough preparation. The ultrasound examination of the organs of the abdominal cavity and the small pelvis, kidneys, adrenal glands, the abdominal aorta, abdominal and retroperitoneal lymph nodes require certain preparation of a patient.

    Single-Type Preparation is Carried out for Ultrasound Examination of All the Organs of the Abdominal Cavity and the Retroperitoneal Space:

    One day before the examination itís necessary to exclude milk, black bread, fresh vegetables, and fruit juices from your consumption.

    To the people with meteorism (bowels swelling) such a diet is prescribed during 2-3 days and taking of enzymatic drugs (Festal, Digestal, Panzynorm, etc.) is recommended two tablets three times a day during 2-3 days; taking of activated carbon (Carbolenum) two tablets (crumbled up and dissolved in half a glass of water) three times a day or chamomile decoction.

    The examination is carried out fasting, besides, time from the last meal till the examination should be no less than 12 hours. In emergency cases the examination is carried out without preparation.

    Urinary bladder filling (2 hours before the examination itís necessary to drink 1.5 liters of liquid without gas) is required for the ultrasound examination of the organs of small pelvis in males in the transabdominal examination.

    A cleansing enema is required in the evening (the night before the examination), and in the morning (the day of the examination) after bowel emptying for the ultrasound examination of the organs of small pelvis in the transrectal examination. Urinary bladder filling is required in assessment of residual urine in transrectal ultrasound examination. Itís necessary to have a condom for the examination. A surgeonís consultation is obligatory before the transabdominal ultrasound of the prostate gland, and digital examination of the prostate gland per rectum is also necessary for administration of transrectal ultrasound examination.

    Paid services are rendered to both Belarusian and foreign citizens; generally they are citizens of Russia and the Ukraine. Doctors who carry out ultrasound examinations have been trained at the departments of BelMAPO and Research Institutes in Minsk, and also at leading clinics of Moscow, Japan, and the USA.
