Sonography & Colour Doppler

Sonography

Sonography, or Ultrasound, utilizes high frequency sound waves (not x-rays) to obtain diagnostic images. Ultrasound imaging is used to evaluate many parts of the body, including the abdomen, blood vessels, foetus of pregnant women, superficial body structures, and newborn brain to name a few.

  • All diseases of the organs of the abdominal cavity in early stages.
  • Tumors of uterus and ovaries and abnormalities of reproductive organs.
  • Maturation of eggs and changes of endometrium in different stages of menstrual cycle.
  • Early pregnancy, including entopic pregnancy.
  • Development of fetuses and possible malformations of fetuses.

At Unihealth, the outstanding dual combination of award winning technologies GE VOLUSON and ACUSON SEQUOIA for Colour Doppler at Health 360 provides superb image quality for the following applications:

  • Carotid Colour Doppler to detect risk of stroke and paralysis by evaluating the vessels in the neck that supply blood to the brain.
  • Peripherial Arterial Colour Doppler.
  • Peripherial Venous Colour Doppler for detection of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT).
  • Renal Doppler (especially for hypertensive patients and diabetics).
