What is the examination of CAT scan (CT) and what is it used for?

     It is a modern way to exam the human body.  CAT camera overexpose examination area with a layer of X-ray tube that rotates around the patient, and the radiation is received by a very narrow rows of detectors on the opposite side.  The computer processes the data (absorption by the body of a passing beam at different angles) and presents it in the form of maps, "density" of tissue, which is the highest quality display of human organs and structures.  With the rapid acquisition the survey is very short - one phase of the examination (data collection) takes only a few seconds.  Thanks to modern solutions patient exposure to X-rays is minimized by over 80%.  Our laboratories are equipped with multi-row equipment of the computed tomography (CAT) of Toshiba, which provide the detailed data quickly. Examination using the thinnest layer of less than 0.5 mm allows an accurate assessment of all of the finest organs and structures of the human body.  In addition, the software provides a wealth of diverse form of image presentation - 3D imaging and virtual endoscopy, and allows to meet all the requirements of the doctors.

How to prepare for the examination and how it runs?

     The patient arrives for the examination an empty stomach (not always necessary) or 5 hours after eating, hydrated (not avoid taking liquids), take medications normally.  During the examination, in a bright, air-conditioned room, the patient lies on a table that slides inside the gantry (wide ring of the camera).  The whole preparation of the examination takes a few minutes.  The same scan (actual part of the examination) for several seconds in one phase (depending on the needs examination is carried out in four phases - cycles).  The examination is not painful, often during the examination iodine contrast agent is administered (which allows for differentiation of blood and evaluation) using an automatic syringe (this allows proper regulation of the flow of contrast and effective scanning).

Our labs offer:

  • examination of the head - the most important examination in the evaluation of post-traumatic changes, diagnostic pain, dizziness, stroke, tumors, and inflammatory lesions and vascular malformations
  • examination of the ear (temporal bone pyramid) - very precise thanks to a 0.5 mm layer of examination
  • imaging ossicular chain and oval window,
  • examination of paranasal sinuses, orbits, face - in inflammation, tumors, traumatic changes,
  • examination of the neck, throat, larynx - inflammation, similar to tumors, cancer,
  • examination of the chest - the best diagnostic examination of lung, with high sensitivity in the evaluation of changes, including small interstitial and in the assessment of bronchial tree (with the possibility of virtual endoscopy)
  • examination of the abdominal cavity - detailed imaging of the structure of solid organs (liver, kidneys, pancreas, spleen)
  • examination of urolithiasis, adrenal pathology, enlarged lymph nodes,
  • examination of the large intestine - allows for early diagnosis of cancer without the need for an endoscope, a video presentation, if necessary, in the form of virtual endoscopy,
  • pelvic examination of the bladder, an reproductive organ in women and prostate in men, mainly in changes in cancer
  • examination of the cervical spine, thoracic or lumbar
  • examination of the bone - the best way to assess bone structure, diagnosis of malignancies, inflammatory, traumatic bone and joint degeneration diagnostics,
  • blood examination - accurate noninvasive assessment: cerebral malformations, carotid artery stenosis and vertebral, peripheral arterial stenosis, aneurysms of the aorta, visceral arteries, pulmonary embolism,
  • examination of soft tissue - to assess changes in tumors, trauma and hematoma.

The results of the examination?

NOTE! We always provide a whole registered examination on CD - all the scans and sequences.

     Diagnosis in writing, shall be forwarded to the patient or doctor.

How the examination can be performed?

  • private (fee - according to the price list)
  • free (reimbursement by the National Health Fund
  • on the basis of referrals from specialist clinic having a contract with the National Health Fund)
