X-ray examinations may reveal joint lesions, bony injuries and many other musculoskeletal conditions, possibly tumours. The images of the joints are essential for making orthopaedic, rheumatological and hand surgical diagnoses and for following-up and monitoring diseases and pot-operative patients as well. At our partner companies (Medical Point, Caring Medical Center), X-ray examinations are carried out by our diagnostic colleagues using digital X-rays in accordance with modern guidelines. In order to reduce radiation exposure, the appropriate protective equipment is available, and our colleagues pay maximum attention to the health of our patients.
The advantage of on-site radiography is the possibility of consultation between the diagnostic colleagues and the doctor requesting the examination, which is often necessary for special settings in hand surgery problems.
MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) is a modern imaging technique that does not involve radiation exposure compared to X-rays or CT scans and has no known adverse biological effects. MRI scans may be essential for the diagnosis of orthopaedic, rheumatological, neurological, spinal, wrist and hand conditions, or for the follow-up of certain diseases.
Targeted joint scans, particularly wrist MRI, require special equipment (e.g. the so-called "wrist coil") and MRI machine of sufficient power (1.5 Tesla) to have a good diagnostic value, and our partners were chosen accordingly (Medical Point, Caring Medical Center). In our Clinic, we place great emphasis on working in close collaboration with the colleagues who perform and evaluate the MRI scans, as this gives us the opportunity to improve both the quality of diagnostics and the quality of care.
CT scans of bones and joints are essential for making orthopaedic, rheumatological and hand surgical diagnoses, and in many cases for establishing surgical indications, planning surgery and post-treatment of post-surgical follow-up. CT scans are performed by our partners with the utmost respect for the rules of the profession to reduce radiation exposure and to ensure the health of our patients. Targeted joint scans, especially of the wrist/hand and other small joints, require sufficiently thin "slice" scans to be of diagnostic value, and our partner companies have been chosen accordingly (Caring Medical Center).
In our Clinic, we place great emphasis on working closely with the colleagues who perform and evaluate CT scans, as this gives us the opportunity to improve both diagnostics and quality of care.
