Echoencephalography (Echo EG) - a non-invasive method of ultrasound diagnostics, with which you can identify the presence of pathological changes and processes in the brain tissue.At the heart of the Echo-EG is the ability of hard and soft tissues of the head and brain tissue to pass and reflect the ultrasonic vibrations.
Echoencephalography to determine:
brain Echoencephalography usually carried out in a lying or sitting position.In the process of diagnosis of the subject's head should be in the most moving.The doctor does to the skin a special coupling gel, which prevents the formation of noise, and then sets the color of the patient small sensors.Depending on the study physician or sequentially smoothly moves them in different areas of the head.Thereafter, the recording signals coming fr
procedure is completely painless for the patient.After the Echo EG specialist conducts decoding the received entries.The next day, the patient can get a printout of the basic measurements and expert opinion.
echoencephalography prescribed to children and adults with the following signs and symptoms:
echoencephalography also used for the diagnosis of the following diseases:
echoencephalography most often used as a method of preliminary examination in preparation for computer or magnetic resonance brain imaging (CT and MRI).Sometimes Echo-EG may be the only alternative to these methods, for example, due to a heavy patient or other contraindications.
Echoencephalography - absolutely safe way to study without having any side effects.The only obstacle to the carrying out Echo-EG is the presence of open wounds on the patient's head in the place of installation of sensors (in this case, is usually assigned a CT or MRI).
For the Echo EG does not require special training.The patient may store eating habits and daily routine.
If brain encephalography appointed child is to keep his head from moving during the procedure may need help from their parents.
