Sonography/ultrasound diagnostics

Ultrasound diagnostics

In sonography, sound waves are used for diagnostic investigation. They are transmitted by an ultrasound probe. The sound waves reflected at different depths in the body are then received again by the same probe. Then a computer calculates and creates an image of the inward parts of the body.

The advantage of this method is that no X-ray is used and that vision-assisted puncture is possible during breast and thyroid examinations. We offer the following ultrasound examinations:

  • abdominal organs
  • Breast (see mamma sonography)
  • thyroid (see thyroid diagnostics) and cervical soft tissue, with thyroid puncture if necessary
  • locomotor system and soft tissue
  • arterial and venous vessels with colour-coded doppler sonography/doppler sonography
