    A well-equipped radiology service forms the basis for accurate diagnosis and effective treatment

    The Hospital of Lithuanian University of Health Sciences Kaunas Clinics has state-of-the-art technologies for medical imaging and a proper infrastructure to meet the procedural requirements of different radiology examinations. The Radiology Department of Kaunas Clinics provides a wide range of diagnostic imaging services: including CT scanning, DEXA bone density scanning, mammography, angiography, MRI scanning, radioisotope scanning, ultrasound scanning, and X-ray.

    Interventional radiology procedures performed by highly-qualified specialists often replace open surgical procedures. A transjugular intrahepatic portosystemic shunting (TIPS) procedure, selective renal and hepatic artery embolization and many other procedures are done by radiologists of Kaunas Clinics.

    The first PET-CT scanner in Lithuania was installed in a brand-new Diagnostic Radiology Centre, which will officially open next month. The PET-CT scanner allows precise diagnosis and prevents unnecessary surgical interventions by determining viable, reversible heart tissue and evaluating cardiac tissue perfusion. The PET-CT scanner will bring new possibilities for detecting tumours, staging of cancer before treatment, during and after therapy, for surgery and radiotherapy planning and follow-up of cancer patients.

    LSB 2012 participants are welcome to attend the Diagnostic Radiology Centre of Kaunas Clinics and find out more about the imaging equipment applied in diagnosis.
