Ultrasound has become an indispensable examination method in modern medicine. It is painless and risk-free, requires no preparation and provides highly informative insights into the health of abdominal organs, thyroid gland or lymph nodes.
As an internal medicine practice in Leipzig, we specialize in sonography for the early detection of diseases and use state-of-the-art technologies for this purpose. In addition to conventional ultrasound, we also offer color Doppler and duplex sonography.
First, we talk about the reason for your sonography: Are you interested in early cancer detection? Or about the examination of tissue changes, circulatory disorders or the function of your heart?
We look at whether you suffer from certain pre-existing conditions and what medications you are taking. If there are already findings, previous examination results or older ultrasound images, please bring them with you to the initial consultation.
Usually, no special preparation is necessary for a sonography. If necessary, you will be informed about individual preparatory measures during the preliminary consultation.
