Echograph - GE Logic P9
It is a state of the art ultrasound equipment that allows a fast and non-invasive evaluation of the different soft tissues of the body, without the risk of radiation and in a safe way. It is the imaging modality of choice in obstetrics, pediatric patients and in patients with contraindications for magnetic resonance and contrast medium administration.
This tool is essential as a guide for Interventional Radiology procedures: biopsies, drains, markings, among others. It also allows the performance of conventional ultrasound, Doppler, evaluation of abdomen, breast, soft tissues, thyroid and works as a guide for interventional procedures. It allows the performance of 3D Obstetric Ultrasound, Biophysical Profile and third level Detail Ultrasound.
Digital Conventional Radiology and Telecommand Equipment
We have digital X-Ray equipment with high image quality and low radiation doses.
In the FCV we have two fixed conventional radiology units in the Emergency and Trauma and Diagnostic Support Units; and two portable units for the Intensive Care Units and Surgical Rooms.
Our X-Ray Telecomanded equipment allows us to perform studies with contrast medium to evaluate the digestive tract, the urinary system, female reproductive system, guide interventional procedures, among others.
MRI - Magnetic Resonator GE 1.5T – GE- Signa Excite
Magnetic Resonance (MRI) is one of the most effective tools for the diagnosis of diseases, it is cataloged as the gold standard in the diagnosis of most pathologies, due to its ability to evaluate soft tissues and bone structures with greater precision and quality of image. The magnetic resonance is indicated for the diagnosis of diseases of the central nervous system, cardiovascular, mammary and abdominal pathologies, osteomuscular system, osteoarticular, oncology , among others.
In the FCV we have advanced cardiovascular MRI software that allows detailed analysis of cardiac morphology and function, flow quantification analysis, myocardial tagging, 3D angiography and tissue assessment by late enhancement sequences.
“We are pioneers in the country in performing Cardiovascular Imaging, Cardiac and Aorta Resonance, in pediatric and adult population”.
Multislice Computed Tomography (CT) – GE Lightspeed VCT
Our Computerized Tomography equipment has 128 detectors that allow rapid studies and excellent image quality, as well as special techniques to reduce the dose of radiation absorbed in susceptible tissues such as the thyroid and retina.
It is capable of performing studies on obese patients (227 kg) and, in addition, it allows studies to be performed on patients with prominent abdominal perimeters.
It is the initial study of choice for diseases of the central nervous system, trauma, cancer, pulmonary, abdominal pathology and cardiovascular diseases. It accurately defines bone structures and also enables 3D studies and virtual navigation, such as bronchoscopy and virtual colonoscopy. It also has the ability to perform simple and contrast media studies, and functions as a guide for interventional procedures.
At FCV we have advanced CT software for cardiovascular image analysis, which allows us to perform a detailed study of cardiac morphology and function, anatomy and analysis of the coronary arteries, aorta and other vascular structures of the body; quantification of coronary calcium, for cardiovascular risk stratification; pre-surgical planning, in endovascular interventionism, in thoracic and abdominal aortic aneurysms; and other vascular pathologies, such as pre-surgical planning of pulmonary vein ablation, percutaneous aortic and mitral valve implantation, among others.
