Of all diagnostic imaging procedures, ultrasound testing is by far the gentlest as it involves no X-rays. Furthermore, recent developments in 3-D tissue imaging and the excellent image resolution that is now possible enable us to detect even the slightest suspect tissue change in areas such as the prostate, bladder or breast. We also use ultrasound examinations on other abdominal organ areas, on joints and on blood vessels supplying the brain.
Urea breath test
To test for Helicobacter pylori, patients are given a test solution mixed with a small quantity of urea to drink. If there is an infection, the urease enzyme splits the urea and easily detectable, non-radioactive carbon isotope 13C, which is also contained in the test solution, is exhaled.
A urinalysis can provide indication of possible urinary tract infections, chronic kidney inflammations, tumour diseases, and diabetes.
Urological examination and andrology consultation
Because men’s health is a major priority at Park Igls we have developed a special diagnostic module, which includes male hormone screening and an andrology consultation, as well as a muscle function test, ultrasound test, ECG and cardiogram.
