Diagnostic procedures offered in IM Clinic

Here in IM Clinic we are proud to offer highly innovative diagnostic tools for discovering and managing age-related diseases.

Every patient’s individual total anti-age management program starts with an in-depth health assessment which is used to define a tailor-made treatment program.

Every person has a unique genetic passport; therefore, the tailor-made approach is of key importance for successful diagnostics and therapy plans.

Ultrasound diagnostics

This universal method is most-commonly used. It has a wide range of applications and diagnostic capabilities. In IM Clinic, we use the ultrasound diagnostic method to examine the status of the cardiovascular system, abdominal organs, thyroid gland and the state of the pulmonary tissue. Besides that, ultrasound contributes by significantly lowering the risks of prospective procedures, performing the procedures like a puncture of central veins, and placing the central catheters more precisely. The use of ultrasound navigation is also effective in performing a Botox treatment as well as the local application of stem cells.

The main advantages of the given method include the facts that it is not invasive, it is painless, and that it has a high resolution as well as the possibility for the examination to be done in the patient’s bed.

ECG diagnostics

ECG is a gold standard in the diagnostics of heart rhythm disorders. It is hard to imagine the diagnostics of myocardial ischemia without it. All patients in our clinic have to undergo an ECG examination after being admitted. Also, during the invasive procedures and medically-induced sleep, the patient is under constant ECG monitoring.

Besides that, when there is an indication, a prolonged ECG monitoring, otherwise called a Holter ECG monitoring, is performed.

Thanks to these tests, important changes in heart function can be detected: rhythm disorders as well as any potential changes in cardiac conduction both of which are signs of myocardial ischemia. Timely detection of such changes makes it possible to take preventive measures and treat the heart disease at its earliest stages.

Prolonged monitoring of arterial pressure

The method has an important place in our diagnostic practice and offers a number of advantages over a simple one-time arterial pressure control (AP). Lots of people have heard of the white coat hypertension effect. It is a condition where, due to anxiety, a patient exhibits elevated levels of blood pressure before and during the examination by a doctor. It is understood here that such AP measurement does not show the patient’s real state and can give misleading results.

In addition, any pieces of information on the reaction of the AP to physical effort as well as possible changes in AP during the night are very important for the physician.

Spirometry

This procedure examines the condition of the respiratory system and its functional capabilities. As a compulsory diagnostic method, spirography is done in patients with chronic lung disease or in order to eliminate the suspicion of any of these types of diseases.

Based on the results obtained, the doctor will determine whether the patient has a tendency towards bronchospasm and whether there is an obstruction of the normal lung functioning while inhaling. This examination also helps in the choice of therapy and assessment of its effectiveness.
