Radiology is the medical use of X-rays and other imaging techniques for diagnosis and treatment. Imaging methods include X-rays, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), mammography, fluoroscopy, and angiography. These methods are used for the diagnosis of diseases. Additionally, biopsies of masses in organs such as the thyroid, breast, liver, and lungs, guided by ultrasound, mammography, CT, and angiography, as well as some interventional procedures, can be easily performed with the help of imaging techniques.

Our clinic utilizes a Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), which is widely used to store and transmit ultrasound, mammography, CT, and MRI reports and images for years.

Imaging Techniques:

Magnetic Resonance (MR): MRI uses powerful magnets and radio waves to create detailed images of tissues in the human body without ionizing radiation. With our MR device, the nervous system, joints, bones, soft tissues, blood vessels, and internal organs can be visualized in detail. MR angiography allows the visualization of vessels in our body reliably by administering contrast material through a superficial venous vessel in our arm without the use of medication or other methods.

Multi-detector Computed Tomography (CT): In CT examinations, image series are obtained using X-rays, allowing the imaging of body areas in a very short time. CT allows non-invasive, easy, and painless examination of each system, and 3D studies can even be performed using these images. CT examination can evaluate tumors and other diseases in the abdomen or lungs, brain hemorrhages, kidney stones, pulmonary embolism, and detailed assessment of bone structures. Various angiographic procedures, including peripheral vessels and coronary arteries, can be performed using CT angiography by administering medication through a venous vessel in our arm.

Ultrasound (USG): Ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves that the human ear cannot hear to characterize tissues. This method allows investigation of the structure and diseases of superficial organs (such as the thyroid, breast) and internal organs without harming the patient. Most non-vascular interventional procedures can be reliably performed with USG. Ultrasound is also used reliably for fetal imaging, providing information about fetal position, estimated due date, gender, and multiple pregnancies.

Color Doppler Ultrasonography (CDUS): Doppler ultrasonography uses high-frequency sound waves and can estimate the direction and speed of blood flow in our vessels, measuring sound waves from moving objects such as red blood cells. The Color Doppler device can diagnose narrowings and blockages in important vessels such as the carotid, renal, aorta, and extremity arteries, detect deep vein thrombosis, and investigate the vascular network of masses.

Mammography: Mammography uses X-ray energy for breast imaging. It can be used for diagnostic purposes or for screening in cases where there are no complaints. Breast cancer is the most common and deadliest cancer in women. With the current digital mammography method, a clearer image is obtained with a lower radiation dose (0.4mSv), and the disease can be diagnosed in its very early stages. Additionally, with mammography, regions with detected microcalcification clusters in the breast can be marked with a wire for local removal.

Digital Breast Tomosynthesis: Digital breast tomosynthesis provides a three-dimensional image with the modification of digital mammography using a moving X-ray source and a digital detector. Tomosynthesis has been shown to increase cancer detection rates and reduce recall rates. Current data show that tomosynthesis reduces the false positive rate in dense breasts and increases the detection rate of cancer.

Angiography: Digital subtraction angiography (DSA) is a fluoroscopic technique used in interventional radiology to evaluate blood vessels. DSA is used diagnostically and therapeutically by administering contrast material to the vessels through a catheter. Since opaque structures like bones are subtracted from the image (substraction), more accurate and clear information about the vessels is obtained. DSA is used in our hospital for the diagnosis of vascular disorders such as aneurysms, biliary tract pathologies, stenting, and placement of intravascular catheters.

Bone Mineral Densitometry (BMD): Bone densitometry measures bone mineral density for quick and painless evaluation of bone density loss. Early diagnosis of bone loss is crucial for preventing or slowing down the disease. As bone mass loss increases, the risk of fractures increases. Osteoporosis is defined as bone loss after menopause, affecting women after menopause, especially those who have undergone surgical menopause (both ovaries removed), consume excessive alcohol, smoke, consume coffee, have spinal fractures, remain immobilized for more than one month, are diabetic, use medications such as heparin, antacids, corticosteroids (Prednisone), dilantin, and barbiturates, or thyroid hormones for a long time. Therefore, bone mineral densitometry should be performed for those at risk of osteoporosis and fractures.

Conventional X-ray (Direct Radiography): It is the method of imaging body structures, especially bones and lungs, using X-rays. It is widely used because of its quick results and economic advantages in diagnosing pathologies.

Panoramic X-ray: With panoramic X-ray, the entire jaw and teeth can be imaged in a single film. Panoramic X-ray plays a role in the diagnosis of diseases such as root diseases in teeth, hidden cavities, cysts, and tumors in the jaw and teeth, thanks to its high resolution.
