A regular scientific conference dedicated to advanced radiology researches was held at MC Erebouni. Radiologist of MRI Department Dr. Meri Davtyan presented the role of Magnetic resonance cholangiography in the diagnosis of biliary tract diseases, and radiologist of the Department of computed tomography Dr. Hayk Simonyan presented the role of CT examination in bowel obstruction. The doctors presented their colleagues with the latest approaches to performing these examinations, as well as the possibilities of the radiology center of MC Erebouni.Speaking about the method of magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography, Dr Mary Davtyan noted several advantages:
Magnetic resonance cholangiography:
Non-invasive intervention of the biliary tract
The procedure is safe, has no radiation exposure, can be used even for examinations of pregnant women and children: There is no need of a contrast agent (bile is a natural contrast).
The examination can be performed in patients who do not need to use invasive methods, for example, for the patients with cardiovascular problems.
Dr. Hayk Simonyan presented the features of diagnostics of bowel obstruction using computed tomography. Bowel obstruction is a condition associated with impaired bowel movement. This is not an independent disease, but is considered a consequence of other diseases.
Multi-layer computed tomography is considered the best method for diagnosing bowel obstruction in the world:
Fast, non-invasive method
It has a high specificity and sensitivity in detecting the level of obstruction
Allows you to detect not only the cause of obstruction, but also to evaluate the nutrition of the wall (ischemia / necrosis), blood vessels, existing and expected complications
Detection of free gas, assessment of the peritoneum
It has an Important role in the choice of treatment method (conservative / surgical)
These latest methods, led by Naira Minasyan, head of the radiology center of Erebouni MC, have been successfully applied for a long time, allowing doctors to choose the best approaches to treating the disease. The technical equipment of the radiology center allows to perform all the latest diagnostic examinations.
