What is it ?
Ultrasound, ultrasound correctly (sometimes also called ultrasound only), examination of modern imaging is a noninvasive method of instrument that uses ultrasonic waves reflected from various body tissues. Typically used to probe the frequency range 2-10 MHz.
Our facility is equipped with modern and high quality Japanese ultrasonic device ALOKA Alpha 7 with spectral and color Doppler mapping, equipped with multifrequency convex, linear and phase-controlled probe meets all the parameters asked for in the present diagnostic ultrasound examinations. This device was a new put into operation in 2019.
