In its relentless progress, modern medicine has less and less need to "get" physically in the patient's body to know, understand and thus prevent or treat diseases: diagnoses, both in depth and reliable, are almost entirely obtained through bloodless and non-invasive techniques. The internal body nowadays may be accessed in unobtrusive and painless ways with rays, ultrasound and magnetic waves, which are then processed by a computer, enabling the physician to obtain a comprehensive picture of the patient in real time.
Of course, no image alone is able to make clear the complexity of the life of a person and remains only a "representation" of the reality; however, it can provide the doctor with invaluable knowledge.
The speed at which technology is making breakthroughs is bringing doctors new possibilities, such as that of placing all of the tests and examinations that one patient undergoes onto a single optical disc, or the remote 3D transmission of images taken within a single centre both to internal departments and externally, so that the data are available to other doctors perhaps hundreds of kilometers away.
Physicists, chemical physisicits, engineers and computer scientists have contributed to this reality. And their commitment is available to IGEA Medical Clinic, who have invested in our much-anticipated diagnostic imaging technology and are today reaping the rewards of what this fascinating technological evolution has to offer us with digital image storage programmes.
Here, below, diagnostic imaging services performed daily by IGEA treatment centre for various departments and clinics.
