RADIODIAGNOSTIC

The state-of-the-art technical equipment of the Interbalkan Medical Center of Thessaloniki constitutes a key priority and a prime investment that only the Athens Medical Center -the biggest healthcare Group in Greece- can provide and continuously upgrade.

It provides doctors with ultramodern devices, for reliable testing, effective treatment and top medical achievements.

The doctors of every diagnostic sector are highly qualified and boast a longstanding experience.

The Interbalkan Medical Center has the appropriate diagnostic equipment for every medical field. However, it also has state-of-the-art and latest generation equipment, such as:

3T MRI SCANNER

This is undoubtedly the most advanced device in radio diagnosis in Greece. It offers accurate early diagnosis, enables tumor monitoring, and can be used in cancer research (detailed study of brain tumors, prostate tumor detection, breast tumor study with a possible biopsy).

It can conduct magnetic tomographies of all body systems, like CNS, musculoskeletal, gastrointestinal, urogenital, cardiovascular, etc. Moreover, it can conduct exams with the newest diagnostic methods, like Diffusion, Perfusion and Spectroscopy.

3D ULTRASOUND ECG

Unique in Greece, with multiple heads, for 3D transthoracic echocardiography and for 3D transesophageal ultrasound. It is ideal for valvuloplasty in case of mitral stenosis, cardiac surgery patients, atrial septal defect (hole in the heart), congenital heart diseases, and coronary artery disease (heart attacks).

SOMATOM DEFINITION 128 SLICE CT SCANNER

The only one that can carry 128 slices/sec (62Χ2), as opposed to the 16-32-64 slices performed by all the others, with reduced radiation exposure of up to 50% and faster than a heartbeat, generating perfectly clear heart images.

Ideal for bloodless angiograms, colonoscopies and a wide range of modern diagnostic tests. It provides impressive results for: Real time lung tumor biopsy system, study of pulmonary nodules, display of small tumors of various organs (liver, pancreas, kidneys), monitoring the treatment results for neoplastic patients.

4D ULTRASOUNDS FOR PRENATAL LEVEL B MONITORING

A state-of-the-art, ultra reliable E8 ultrasound device of General Electric for 3D or real-time 4D ultrasonography, for first, second and third trimester, as well as of Level B for the most reliable imaging of the fetal anatomy.

SELENIA DIGITAL MAMMOGRAPHY SCANNER

An ultra modern mammography scanner for reliable and accurate tumor imaging for women under 50, women with dense breasts and women before or near menopause. It emits less radiation -by 25-30%- compared to conventional mammography scanners. With this digital scanner, all supplementary imaging, whether to correct or to zoom any suspicious spots, can be avoided.

Moreover, the hospital's diagnostic equipment includes:

CT ANGIOGRAPHY (POLYSTAR TOP)

This scanner performs diagnostic angiograms, as well as a wide spectrum of interventional therapy procedures.

It also performs:

Simple digital radiographs and digital radioscopy of every human organ, pyelographies, urethral cystography, esophagus-stomach and small-large intestine imaging, salpingographies, syringographies, etc.

Ultrasounds: A wide range of exams for the entire human body, as well as exams for the organs of the cervix, abdomen, pelvis and vessels.
