The first photos and videos of your child! (Odessa)

Ultrasound examination provides a great opportunity:

First, the doctor can carefully examine your child to determine the gender , to clarify if the gestation period is consistent with its dimensions, to identify the number of fetuses when multiple pregnancy , to determine the placenta location, its thickness and structural properties , as well as to measure the amount of amniotic fluid.

Secondly, a thorough ultrasound scan allows to closely examine the anatomical features of your child, to detect the slightest deviation (malformations)

Third, ultrasound examination can be combined with Doppler velocimetry, that allows to evaluate the utero-placental blood flow and cardiotocography (CTG ), for comprehensive assessment of the state of the child in utero.

And don’t forget the additional features of three-dimensional ultrasound (3D) and the three-dimensional examination in real-time (4D)!

Ultrasound , produced in 3D- mode, allows seeing three-dimensional image of the child , to take the photography.

The four-D ultrasound allows watching a child's function in real time, making a video of this period of life. Some parents will certainly want to get a photo of the child before birth or video of his " prenatal period of life" ; and our center provides such an opportunity!

Three-dimensional ultrasonography effects an assessment of fetal body in three planes simultaneously , which is important, as it allows to determine fetal malformations.

3D fetal ultrasonography is usually taken from 12 to 32 weeks of pregnancy. In this period you can see the facial expressions of the child.

At 18th -21st weeks of pregnancy you can identify the sex of expected child

In addition , the three-dimensional ultrasound can more accurately diagnose some malformations of the fetus’ face the spine and limbs

The 3D ultrasonography screening protocol practiced at the Medical Center of Reproductive Health "Gameta" includes the etometric ultrasound screening (measurement of some parameters of the fetus), placentography (placenta examination and measurement) with recording the data on CD / DVD. Ultrasonography completed, the patient obtains a written report, and if you want, you can also get photo and CD.

The ultrasound method is absolutely safe, as proven by scientists around the world.

Ultrasound - a simple, safe and painless procedure

Preparation for internal organs ultrasonography

If you have a need for ultrasonography of internal organs, you can use our center service. However, to obtain qualitative data, you need to get prepared in some special way.

The abdominal cavity. The examination is conducted in the morning when empty stomach after a 10-12 hour fast. When increased flatulence recommended is a three-day diet, excluding raw vegetables and fruits, brown bread, dairy products, beans, and after every meal administered is intaking of activated charcoal and enzyme preparations (festal).

Kidneys and bladder. When only kidneys examination none special procedures are required. At bladder diagnostics, it should be filled (300-350 ml liquid containing). 1.5-2 hours before the examination it is recommended to drink 1 liter of any liquid .

Prostate . If transabdominal examination required is a full bladder (see above) . At the transrectal study it should be filled only when need for a detailed study of the bladder wall.

Uterus and ovaries. If transabdominal examination (through the abdomen) required is a well filled bladder. When transvaginal study (through the vagina) the bladder should be empty.
Attention to pregnants ! at pregnant women, a full bladder is required only up to 12 weeks of pregnancy.
Mammary glands. No special preparation required.

Thyroid . No special preparation required.

Pelvic organs (gynecology) ultrasonography, Odessa

At the present level of technological development in gynecology in wide use are both transabdominal (through the anterior abdominal wall with a full bladder) and vaginal sensors (examination through the vagina) . Using the vaginal ones is preferable because of better visualization of the internal reproductive organs with a finer assessment of their structure.

Using ultrasound we can assess the condition of the uterus, cervix, ovaries, fallopian tubes (if pathology) and surrounding organs.

During ultrasonography measured are the sizes of all available for examination bodies, to evaluate their structure and compliance to the menstrual cycle phase.

For the first time the Ultrasound scanning can be effected at any day of the menstrual cycle, excluding days of menstruation. If the diagnosis is unclear or requires clarification, the examination will be repeated on a certain day of the cycle.

The most common cases.

Uterine fibroids . In the presence of this disease the utrasonoscopy is preferable for the first phase of the menstrual cycle, immediately after the menstruation ending, especially for ultrasound control scheduled to be done 1-2 times a year. This is due to the fact that in the first phase fibroids dimensions are much smaller than in the second where some swelling ispossible due to specific action of the progesterone hormone. That is, if you make ultrasound twice in one month, the size of the same nodes may vary significantly depending on the phase of the menstrual cycle . Moreover, the true dimensions of the nodes will be considered these measured in the first phase of the cycle . Ultrasound helps to reliably estimate the number of nodes, their size, structure, location in relation to the walls of the uterus and uterine cavity, which is very important for a decision on further treatment .

Endometriosis . With the help of ultrasound we can diagnosed the location of endometriotic lesions in the muscle of the uterus (myometrium). This is so-called internal endometriosis or adenomyosis . at this disease, in contrast to uterine fibroids, it is better to make a study of the second phase of the menstrual cycle when hot spots are "swollen" , and they are better detected with ultrasound. Also, ultrasound can detect the presence of endometrioid ovarian cysts, which have a characteristic structure. At other localisation sites, the endometriosis is practically inaccessible for visualisation using ultrasound.

Inflammation of the internal genital organs. When inflammation of the uterus (adneksit , salpingoophoritis) the ultrasound can be done any day of the menstrual cycle. However, if the problem relates to extension of the fallopian tubes (hydrosalpincs , saktosalpincs) , the examination should be repeated immediately after the menstrual period to determine whether an additional flow of menstrual blood into the fallopian tubes takes place. When inflammation of the uterus lining (endometrium ) important is to assess the structure of the endometrium, so ultrasound must be done in both the first and second phases of the cycle.

Post-abortion and condition after other intrauterine interventions. Necessary is to effect ultrasound immediately after the next menstrual period, as well as some additional indications revealed either at the development of complications (bleeding, endometriosis, suspected remnants of the ovum, etc.)
Ovarian dysfunction. The ultrasound may help to clarify the diagnosis, in assessment of the ovaries and the endometrium condition. For that it is necessary to produce ultrasound at least twice during one menstrual cycle. This is especially important when evaluating the effectiveness of treatment for tracking the growing follicle, detection whether ovulation has occurred and how the endometrium changes under the influence of hormones produced by the ovaries

Endometrial hyperplasia. If, during the itrasonography of second phase there was suspected this diagnosis, it is necessary to repeat the examination immediately after the next menstrual period, to see whether an independent rejection of thickened endometrium and / or polyps, took place or there exists a need for medical assistance.

Tumors and ovarian cysts. This diagnosis can be established through ultrasound, produced immediately after the next menstrual period. In the middle of the same, and in the second phase of the menstrual cycle the ovaries normally contain sufficiently large (about 2 cm in diameter) additional inclusion: growing follicle or corpus luteum, that in the absence of experience some doctor can be occasionally mistake for a tumor.
Suspected pregnancy. When a delay of the next menstrual period the ultrasound techniques can reliably reveal the fertilized ovum in the uterus beginning from about 5th - 7th days of delay.

Preventive examinations.

If a woman is practically healthy, as a preventive measure for early detection of various gynecological diseases recommended is a regular pelvic ultrasound once every 1 - 2 years, and once a year after 40 years age.

Breast ultrasound in Odessa
Breast tumors are the most common type of cancer. Only in the U.S. each year breast cancer affects approximately 184 million women and 1.5 thousand men , becoming a cause of death for 45 thousand people.
The key to solving this problem relates to early diagnosis of breast tumors. All previous years identification of the breast neoplasma was conducted mainly by X-ray mammography. Unfortunately, mammography does not allow to distinguish benign tumors from malignant .
Here an effective solution appeared as ultrasonography. According to some reports the X-ray mammography does not allow visualization of up to 40% of tumors when examining young women under 40 years. And the absence of radiation exposure at ultrasonic method is the determining factor in choosing the diagnostics when examining women of childbearing age .
Group of systemic diseases of the breast by is united with mastopathy term that diagnosis occurring at 75-80 % of all women

Thyroid ultrasound, Odessa

Thyroid disease occurs at 8% of the adult population of the globe. At the same time, women suffer more often than men (3:1).

Among cancers the malignant thyroid tumors amount up to 3%.

Ultrasonic diagnosis of focal lesions of the thyroid gland is characterized by an almost 100% sensitivity and 93% in respect of cancer diagnosis.

The thyroid gland responds to almost all kinds of environmental pollution. In practice, important to quickly identify the various border pathological conditions imposing serious thyroid disease: the development of diffuse toxic goiter, autoimmune thyroiditis, neoplastic processes, hypothyroidism.
In view of the problem importance for our country developed is a National governmental program to study the entire population thyroid gland condition, with annual medical examination, including ultrasound diagnosis, laboratory tests, specialists advice.

During thyroid ultrasound examination estimated is a series of parameters:

gland as a whole (the location, size, outline, form, structure)

intraorganic changes (their character: diffuse or focal),

location, number of formations, contours, dimensions, structure,

relationship with thyroid surrounding structures.

Possible is to detect developmental abnormalities (position and size), hyperplasia (diffuse and nodular forms), manifestations of thyroiditis (acute and chronic), adenoma, malignant tumors
