Ultrasonography / Ecography
Ultrasonography is a non-invasive and simple imaging technique performed by a medical sonographer.
This technique uses ultrasound to obtain a detailed image of the organ under examination, resolving everything that is parenchymal (liver and kidneys) and liquid (bladder, cysts, hematomas). The use of this examination is applied in different fields: gynaecology, internal, surgical, endocrinological, urological, obstetric and orthopaedic.
This examination is performed not only to assess the functional status of an organ but also as a guide during minimally invasive interventions such as biopsies, drainage, abscesses and catheter placement.
Ultrasound has no contraindications as ultrasound is harmless to the body.
