Ultrasound at the patient’s home
Ultrasound is a very important examination for diagnosing many diseases. The examination provides the doctor with a good picture of the condition of the internal organs and allows to identify a variety of pathological processes in them, therefore, this is a very common imaging examination and most people perform it several times during their lifetime. The examination is completely safe, since ionizing radiation, as in during an X-ray examination, is not used, and can be performed for any patient, including infants and pregnant women.
How is the examination performed at your home? After coordinating the arrival time with the call center, an ultrasound specialist technician will arrive with a portable ultrasound device, perform the examination at your home and send the results for decoding by a radiologist. And within 24 hours you receive the results with a full and detailed report, including recommendations for further clarification and treatment within a health fund.
Which examinations can be performed at home?
The advanced equipment allows for the performance of a variety of ultrasound examinations at the patient’s home, including: ultrasound of the abdominal, urological, Doppler, soft tissue, blood vessels and more. The examination takes 15-30 minutes.
