  • Abdominal ultrasound (liver, gallbladder, pancreas, spleen, kidney, bladder) 
  • Hepatopancreatic echocardiography (liver, gallbladder) 
  • Urological system echoscopy (kidney, bladder, adrenal glands)
  • Urological system echocardiography with a pyloric transducer (kidney, bladder, adrenal glands, prostate, residual urine) 
  • Comprehensive echocardiography of the urological system with abdominal and cavity transducers (kidneys, adrenal glands, bladder, prostate, testis, residual urine)
  • Thyroid and cervical lymph node echoscopy
  • Breast and axillary lymph node echoscopy
  • Single joint echoscopy 
  • Echocardiography of two joints 
  • Three-joint echoscopy 
  • Echocardiography of a single small mass
  • Fetal echoscopy with echograms (not advanced)
  • Echocardiography of the veins in one leg (or arm) 
  • Single-organ echoscopy 

Advantages of ultrasound as a diagnostic method:

  • High diagnostic informativeness;
  • No radiation exposure (test safety);
  • Painless;
  • Patient comfort;
  • Low price;


  • Abdominal echocardiography examines the kidneys, liver, gall bladder, pancreas, spleen, aorta and other blood vessels in cases of abdominal pain or bloating, liver dysfunction, enlargement of an organ, kidney or gall bladder stones, hepatitis, liver cancer, cirrhosis, pyelonephritis, pancreatitis, pancreatic cancer, etc. diseases, aortic aneurysm (bulging), blockage of blood vessels (thrombosis), narrowing due to atherosclerosis.
  • Breast ultrasound is important for the diagnosis of breast cancer and other breast diseases. Under ultrasound guidance, biopsies are taken of masses in the breast.
  • Muscle and joint echocardiography helps diagnose tendon and muscle tears, benign or malignant soft tissue tumours, bleeding into muscles or joints, and early joint changes due to arthritis.
  • Urogenital echocardiography determines the status and pathological changes of the following organs: testicular pathology; blood flow in the penile vessels; prostate pathology (benign prostatic hyperplasia, adenoma, cancer); kidney pathology (cysts, tumours, hydronephrosis, abnormalities of the position and size of the kidney etc.)Pathology of the bladder; in women, kidney, bladder.
  • Prostatic echocardiography is performed through the anus to detect various disorders of the prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostatitis) or to clarify the results of a transabdominal echocardiography when the prostate gland is enlarged, to plan treatment or to determine the cause of male infertility. The test is performed when a palpable lump is detected in the prostate, when testing for prostate cancer, when PSA (prostate-specific antigen) levels are elevated in the blood, or when there are difficulties in urinating.
  • Testicular echocardiography is needed to examine testicular tissue, to monitor the testicles after trauma, in case of testicular pain, or when testicular cancer is suspected. It is also possible to examine the testicular appendages.
  • Thyroid echocardiography is needed to assess morphological changes in the thyroid gland (nodules, cysts, granularity). It is appropriate in the presence of impaired function: hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. Thyroid biopsies are recommended under ultrasound guidance.
