X-ray radiology

X-ray imaging is a non-invasive diagnostic technique based on the ability of X-rays to penetrate opaque media and structures, be absorbed by them, and project an image onto a special film or screen. With the help of X-ray imaging, almost all bodily systems and organs can be examined, and changes in tissues can be detected even before the onset of pronounced symptoms of a disease. At the GMS Hospital surgical center, X-ray diagnosis is carried out using the most advanced equipment available.

X-ray diagnostics in detail

Radiology is a diagnostic method that uses ionized radiation in order to create a localized image of human organs and systems. Our tissues and organs absorb x-rays differently, which shows up in x-ray imagery as varying levels of contrast. This enables doctors to diagnose conditions affecting various organs (lungs, kidneys, etc.) in a short amount of time.

In certain cases, in order to obtain a more precise picture of pathological processes, various contrasting compounds are used. The overall goal is the early detection and diagnosis of organ dysfunctions and illnesses. X-ray technology is used for a wide variety of disorders, and sometimes it is the only effective method of diagnosing serious illnesses.

Advantages of diagnostics at GMS

You can have an X-ray imaging consultation at a convenient time for you, at the GMS Hospital diagnostic center. The main advantages of coming to us for medical care:

  • a full range of x-ray and fluoroscopic studies;
  • modern, high-precision digital equipment;
  • experienced radiologists with many years of practical experience;
  • an integrated approach to diagnosis and treatment;
  • the option of undergoing a clarifying examination;
  • Nearly 500 preset modes of operation makes it possible to create sharp images with minimal radiation exposure.

You will be given the X-ray images and a copy of the radiologist's report. If necessary, you can immediately arrange for a consultation with a physician specialist.

Types of examinations performed at GMS Hospital by radiologists

  • X-ray imaging and fluoroscopy;
  • angiography;
  • mammography;
  • CAT scan with contrast;
  • fluorography;
  • MRI;
  • densitometry;
  • PET-CAT;
  • scintigraphy;
  • irrigoscopy;
  • orthopantomography (panoramic and targeted image of the teeth and bone tissue);
  • urography and other types of diagnostics.

Thanks to our modern equipment and our doctors' high level of professional training, we can quickly perform the necessary diagnostic examination and obtain sharp, high-quality X-ray images with minimal exposure of the patient to radiation.

Diagnostic equipment

At the X-ray and radiology center at GMS we have rooms for CAT, MRT, multi-layer spiral CAT, and X-ray imagery and therapy. The department is equipped with high-tech equipment that allows us to quickly and efficiently perform the whole range of necessary investigations:

X-ray radiology
  • digital X-ray systems for a wide range of high-level diagnostic imaging that can detect even minimal lesions. This multifunctional digital X-ray system is equipped with an innovative program for simultaneous acquisition, processing, storing and transferring images;
  • High-resolution computed tomography (CAT) with the ability to build 3D-models of organs and systems. Automatic 3D-reconstruction, color coding, and rotation of 3D-models are only a small part of the capabilities of the CAT-scan services at the GMS clinic. The equipment is intended for CAT diagnostics with and without contrast, for almost all organs and systems, from small joints to the brain;
  • Modern magnetic resonance imaging scanner with high scanning speed and high resolution for top-quality images. The equipment has the function of pseudo-PET (positive emission tomography) for oncreen screening and early diagnosis of tumors (from 3 mm);
  • expert class mammograph with advanced functionality that can examine the mammary glands in different projections and obtain images with image magnification and local compression;
  • digital radiovisiograph;
  • New generation densitometer with Whole body software for early detection of osteoporosis.

GMS Hospital uses high-tech X-ray systems, an orthopantomograph, a photofluorograph, a dental apparatus, and all types of diagnostic studies, including sighting and polyposition, are performed using contrast (barium suspension and iodine-containing agents) and without. Minimal radiation exposure allows us to safely examine patients of all age groups.

Preparing for the procedure

The natural contrast in X-ray radiological studies is air and bone and adipose tissue. In some clinical situations, X-ray contrast agents are used to better visualize the organ. Most X-ray procedures at GMS do not require any additional preparation on the part of the patient. However, for the examination of hollow organs (gastrointestinal system), you must first prepare:

  • 3-4 days before the examination, the patient should adhere to a low-roughage diet;
  • the evening before and the morning before the X-ray, clean the intestines with an enema or special solutions;
  • You can eat no later than 10 hours before the X-ray imaging; if the intestine is being examined, then a light breakfast is allowed in the morning;
  • X-ray of the stomach is performed on an empty stomach; on the day of the study, you should not eat, drink, smoke, brush your teeth or chew gum.

Mammography is performed from the 6th to the 12th day of the menstrual cycle. Preparation for hysterosalpingography and for excretory and review urography, as well as for X-rays of the lumbar spine, is similar to that described above. You can get more detailed information about our diagnostic methods and necessary preparatory steps by signing up for a consultation with a doctor, either online or by phone.
