Computed tomography (CT) is a scanning technique that uses X-rays and gives us extremely sharp images of the body. A CT scan can provide detailed information on many parts of the body as listed below.
One of the main advantages of this machine is that reduces the radiation dose received by the patient by 30-50% without affecting the quality of imaging.
The diagnostic tests performed by the Zakynthos Medical Center Computed Tomography Unit are as follows:
It also has a dental program, where a jaw CT scanis performed. With this program, the structure of the jaws and similar anatomical molecules is presented with the highest precision and quality. Jaw CT scan is particularly useful for the planning of implant placement and surgical removal of problematic teeth and abnormal jaw pathologies (incisional teeth, root residues, intraocular tumors and infections).
With image quality and computed tomography guidance, specialist doctors can perform invasive surgeries such as transdermal biopsies, drainage and punctures.
Finally, note that the company has an advanced medical image management and storage system, through which we keep an electronic record of all examinations. So, at any time in the future, we can refer to any examination for comparison or reprint.
Magnetic resonance imaging is the leading imaging method for the study and investigation in general of tumors of human body.
This method does not expose patient to X-rays, and the contrast agents used are considered safer than those used on CT scan.
Zante Medical Care’s MRI department has a modern machine, the MAGNETOM Symphony A Tim System (1.5T). This magnetic resonance imaging system is one of the most reliable systems of all currently on the world market.
The system's primary objective is to provide fast, high quality, efficient and comfortable patient service.
Features that contribute to positive results and make it completely patient-friendly are:
MAGNETOM Symphony A Tim System features a comprehensive range of clinical optimized exams for all areas of the body, which are distinguished in application packages:
The Radiological Laboratory of Zakynthos Medical Care offers diagnostic radiology services. The qualified personnel and the specialized equipment meet all the requirements for the operationof high precision and high diagnostic tests.
In the classical radiology department all simple radiographs are performed:
as well as intravenous pyelography, ascending pyelography and cholangiography exams.
Mammography can play an important role in reducing the mortality rate of breast cancer. Digital mammography is the first diagnostic method for preventive breast cancer, with the ability to detect the disease at an early stage. However, achieving this requires high quality images.
All women, based on age and family history, should be regularly check their breasts.
Women without a family history should have their first mammogram between 35 and 40 years old.
If a woman has a family history, she should have a mammogram ten years earlier than the age at which breast cancer came to her relative.
After the age of 40, women should undergo mammography every year as the risk of the disease increases. This allows the possibility for a cancer tobe detected at a very early stage.
Zante Medical Care, with a high priority in providing high quality health services, was equipped withMammomat Fusion digital mammogram. Siemens sign the quality and reliability of the system.
It is an excellent mammography system to enhance day-to-day operation and diagnosis, with automated workflows and complex tasks performed at the touch of a button.
Features that make Mammomat Fusion stand out and be a great imaging tool in the hands of the doctor:
Bone density measurement is a simple and bloodless test performed to prevent and early diagnose osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is one of the biggest health problems worldwide. It causes a gradual decrease in bone density, quality, stiffness and elasticity, resulting in an increased risk of fracture.
Osteoporosis can be a hereditary disease or acquired and occurs in both women and men.
Factors that increase the risk of osteoporosis are:
Osteoporosis is usually diagnosed by measuring the bone density of the lumbar spine.
Zante Medical Care’s Bone Density department is equipped with General Electric's Lunar DPX NT machine. Provides a reliable diagnosis painlessly and safely in just 5-10 minutes. The radiation received by the patient is only one tenth of that received by simple chest x-rays.
Bone density measurement is necessary in:
Diagnosis of diseases and tissues around the teeth is not always clear. Injured teeth, tooth decay, abnormalities in the teeth, incisional or superimposed teeth, damage to the jawbone, are just some of the conditions that a panoramic X-ray can reveal.
Panoramic radiography shows the condition of all teeth and bones andof the upper and lower jaw. Panoramic radiographs mainly serve two dental needs:
It easily gives a general view of both jaws together. Therefore, it helps diagnosefor:
Zante Medical Care, always seeking to offer the best services. For that reason has been upgraded with a modern orthopedist, Morita Veraview IC5 HD. Now, every patient will be able to perform panoramic X-ray in less than 10 seconds.
The features that make this modern pantograph different are the following:
Ultrasound is an advanced method of imaging diagnosis with a wide range of applications.
In Ultrasound department, Vessel Triplex and Body Ultrasound are performed with modern Esaote machines.
Machines offer impressive quality of image in the abdomen, in all parts of the body and vessels to meet any need that arises.
Color Vessel Ultrasound (Vessel Triplex)
With the Vessel Triplex the doctor measures the speed and blood flow to the vessels and is able to diagnose potential problems.
Kinds of Triplex:
Ultrasound scans are performed:
Zante Medical Care has an advanced medical image management and storage system through which you keep an electronic record of all examinations. By this way, at any time in the future, the examination can be compared or reprinted.
