Ultrasound in the network of medical centers “DoctorPRO”
Ultrasound is a fast and safe way to diagnose using ultrasound waves to make a correct diagnosis for a patient. This method is successfully used in gynecology, urology, traumatology and orthopedics. Ultrasound examination does not cause side effects and is performed without special preparation.
We perform the following:
- gynecological ultrasound
- ultrasound of abdominal cavity
- ultrasound of mammary glands
- ultrasound of pelvic organs
- ultrasound of kidneys
- ultrasound of heart
- ultrasound of cervical vessels
- ultrasound of thyroid gland
Penetrating through tissues, ultrasound does not harm the body: it does not cause structural changes in cells and does not provoke new inflammation site. Ultrasound makes it possible to assess the condition of the internal and genital organs, establish their size and detect pathologies.
For example, ultrasound in urology provides the urologist with detailed information about the structural and functional changes in the genitourinary system. The examination reveals malfunctions and disorders in the functioning of the kidneys, bladder and prostate.
Ultrasound in gynecology makes it possible to detect gynecological diseases even in the early stages, to assess the anatomical features of the structure of ovaries, cervix and fallopian tubes. Based on the ultrasound results, the gynecologist will be able to choose effective rehabilitation program with minimal risks to women's health.
Ultrasound of kidneys and other internal organs, as well as the female and male reproductive system, is performed by sonologist. In most cases, a referral to him is prescribed by a therapist or a subject-matter doctor (in particular, a gastroenterologist, urologist or gynecologist). An experienced sonologist examines carefully the structure and thickness of internal and genital organs of men and women and gives ultrasound report.
Ultrasound of joints is often referred to by orthopedists and traumatologists to study the condition of the cartilage and bone tissues of the knee, shoulder and ankle. The main indication for examination is pain in the area of joints, their swelling and nodosity, mobility limitation of the knee, shoulder or ankle joint. Ultrasound of soft tissues of the lower leg allows detecting tumor-like formations in the connective tissue, and the examination of knee joint is indicated if a cyst is suspected.
Based on the examination results, a suitable treatment is selected. For example, ultrasound of bladder may reveal inflammation (cystitis). In this case, sparing anti-inflammatory drugs are selected, physiotherapy is prescribed to restore and strengthen the tone of urinary tract.

Types of ultrasound examination
Preparation for ultrasonography depends on the type of ultrasound examination. There are several types of examinations using ultrasonic waves:
- transabdominal or superficial - diagnostics of internal organs. With the help of a special gel, the selected area is lubricated and ultrasonic waves are sent from transducer. The image is transmitted to the monitor, and the doctor assesses the structure, size of organs, identifies pathologies (if any);
- transvaginal - a method of examining the female pelvic organs. Using a vaginal probe, the doctor evaluates ovaries, fallopian tubes and cervix. Ultrasound of pelvic organs in women is indicated during pregnancy and for the diagnostics of gynecological diseases;
A separate group includes ultrasound of soft tissues (lower legs or other parts of the body), as well as ultrasound of knee, shoulder joint and other joints.
