The accurate diagnosis very much depends, among others, the speed of treatment, and thus the disease. In choosing a diagnostic laboratory, often guided by the price and proximity to the place of residence. This is a mistake! What are guided in choosing the medium in which will do the study?
Choosing a diagnostic laboratory should take into account three aspects : the experience of doctors diagnosticians , available technology (including the possibility of making a comprehensive research ) and the quality of diagnostic laboratory .
Technology and complexity
-Choosing a diagnostic laboratory should be guided by the experience and available in the technology. Today, modern facilities are equipped not only your standard ultrasound and X-ray, but also high-tech magnetic resonance and computed tomography , which allows for example to diagnose abdominal 3D . The more modern the center , the more accurate we can be diagnosed - explains Dr. Arthur Brown , director NZOZ POLIMED .
Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging is a powerful weapon for medical diagnosis , due to the non-invasive assessment of changes , real-time imaging and the ability to obtain images with high spatial resolution . The high -quality diagnostic centers can also provide the ability to perform highly specialized tests such as magnetic resonance spectroscopy or coronary angiography assessment of cardiac function .
-High-end equipment can produce cross-sectional image of the irradiated layer thickness of a few millimeters . Through the use of a computer system many sections can then be combined into a single three-dimensional image of the organ , with a complete picture of the changes taking place in the body - explains Dr. Artur Grochowski .
Poles usually seek diagnostic laboratories closest to your home and offer the lowest prices. So does today, more than half of the patients who got a referral for investigation. Unfortunately this is a mistake. Too late or inaccurate diagnosis to bear on health and adopted therapy. This problem most commonly affects patients with cancer , rheumatoid arthritis ( RA) and multiple sclerosis ( MS). In their case, comprehensive and accurate diagnosis is the basis for the selection of appropriate therapy . Therefore, experts warn that choosing a studio , guided by completely different criteria than the price of the study and the number of kilometers.
-Looking for centers that are able to provide us with comprehensive diagnostics , and thus provide the doctor a complete picture of our health. Often , because after the X-ray is needed to further , in-depth diagnostics such as computed tomography or magnetic resonance imaging - says Dr. Aldona Giec - Lorenz . And he adds: - choosing one center Featuring a variety of devices , we are confident that our physicians will be tested with each consult your case , which will avoid differences of opinion about our health.
Experience medical diagnosticians
But not only has the equipment in good diagnostic and assessment facility . Experts say the most important are the doctors who read our results. This often from their description what you get with the result depends on our continued therapy , and health. The largest centers in Poland today work with physicians of various specialties , researchers often the best universities in the country.
-When choosing a studio make sure before us who will be diagnosed , what kind of doctors working at the resort, we have specializations and experience in their work. Ideally, all cases of cancer diagnosed experienced oncologist and orthopedic fracture or neurologist . It is up to them will then depend on what our doctor will choose medicines , therapy , and directs us for rehabilitation or treatment . Today, a good and accurate diagnosis supported by the knowledge and experience of the doctor is half the battle in the healing process - says Dr. Giec - Lorenz .
The quality of diagnostic laboratory
The quality of the laboratory can be assessed on the spot - just look around.
-The best centers in the country can boast of a number of certificates and awards , often find them in waiting rooms and on websites. It should be aware of them making the diagnosis , they are often proves that the center continues to grow , both in the technological and scientific - says Dr. Giec - Lorenz .
