The sound waves echoes are recorded & displayed as a real time, visual image.
No radiation is involved in ultrasound imaging. Doppler ultrasound is a special technique used to examine blood flow.
This can help to diagnose a variety of conditions causing narrowing or dilatation of the blood vessels.
PAP smear :
A Pap smear is a test your doctor does to check for signs of cancer of the cervix.
The cervix is part of your uterus (womb). During a Pap smear, your doctor takes a sample of cells from your cervix to be tested.
To take the sample, your doctor will put a special instrument called a speculum into your vagina.
This helps open your vagina so the sample can be taken. Your doctor will gently clean your cervix with a cotton swab and then collect a sample of cells with a small brush, a tiny spatula or a cotton swab.
This sample is put on a glass slide and sent to a lab to be checked.
Coloposcopy is a diagnostic tool to determine the cause of abnormalities found in Pap smears.
A colposcopy is a visual examination of the cervix–a relatively simple and painless procedure, usually performed in your physician’s office.
The actual procedure lasts approximately ten to fifteen minutes.
A colposcope is a large, electric microscope that is positioned approximately 30 cm from your vagina.
A bright light on the end of the colposcope makes it possible for your physician to visualize your cervix.
