Special Hospital Akromion invested in the state-of-the-art Siemens 1.5 T MRI device and surely the best digital X-ray device in our market adapted to the needs of orthopedics and traumatology. It now has the newly opened Diagnostic Radiology Department in Zagreb Polyclinic which combines the highest quality of diagnostic with the conservative and operative treatments.
From now on, the available diagnostic devices make it possible to perform all the necessary examinations in one institution with the best choice of treatment method. The MRI Device, MAGNETOM® Aerea and Digital X-ray Device, Multix Fusion Max, represent the highest standard for bone and joint imaging in Croatia.
Magnetom Aera, a MRI device with power of 1.5 Tesla and with its technical features, will provide a particularly accurate and customized imaging for patients who have a metal implant and an artificial wrist. With the help of MRI devices, it is also possible to monitor damaged hollow cartilage. Also, it is important to note that the device with its wide aperture of 70 cm allows easy imaging without claustrophobia.
Multix Fusion Max is a digital radiography system that enables all standard X-ray quality searches along with standard radiation reduction that enabled by digital technology. Of most other digital X-ray devices, it excels in the ultra-radiative movement of the X-ray tube around the horizontal and vertical axes, with the addition of Wi-Fi portable digital detectors and special Siemens software OrthoView. It is certainly the best X-ray device in our market adapted to the needs of orthopaedics and traumatology.
In addition to these diagnostic devices, you can also perform ultrasound exams at the Special Hospital Akromion. Ultrasound examination can be used to analyze traumas, sports injuries and overstrain syndromes, inflammatory diseases, changes in degenerative joint diseases and tumors. Sometimes some of the deeper tissues of the body or a muscle and especially the inner tissue is unavailable to ultrasound examination (such as cross ligaments, knee meniscus and cartilage of all joints).
