Exams

  • RADIOGRAPHY

    How it works ?

    A radiography is obtained by attenuation of an X ray beam that passes through a part of the body. This attenuation depends on the thickness and composition of tissues. The beam strikes a radiographic film as a ray of light strikes a photographic film.  The ray is more or less stopped in its progression, depending on the density and composition of the structure it passes through. Also, the bones would seem white and the air in the lungs - black.

     

    Is it dangerous ?

    The X rays exist in nature: the human body is exposed to cosmic radiation (traveling by plane or being on a steady ground) and to emanations of certain minerals (granite...). Natural radiation has no adverse health effects. The quantity of rays delivered during a standard radiology exam is also unimportant. For example, a lung radiography delivers 100 times less rays than natural annual radiation. In all cases a dose of rays is maintained at the lowest level possible.

     

    Are there precautions or eventual contraindications ?

    It's necessary to signal a pregnancy or a late period, and a physician will take necessary precautions. Ideally, if there's no urgency, an exam for a woman of child-bearing age with a wish of pregnancy will be scheduled during her period or the week after.

  • MAMMOGRAPHY

    Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women (38% of cancers in women in 2000). Nearly 10% of women develop a breast cancer in their lives. Luckily, today, more than 70% of women can be cured. Prognostics and the chance to heal depend on precocity and the precision of diagnosis.

     

    Mammography :

    It's a medical examination with a referral used in cases of clinic anomalies (pain, breast lumps,flow,..) or in systematic screening. Ultrasound scan is of precious help to specify an anomaly or more systematically, when breasts are dense and hard "to read." In an adolescent or a very young woman Ultrasound could be the first option.

     

    Screening :

    It allows to detect the smallest anomaly even before it's detectable by palpation, meaning as early as possible. Screening is organized by the department in the framework of ADEMAS. It's conducted in a certified center without fee advancement. Mammographies are analyzed for the first time immediately after an exam, and later by a radiologist.

     

    Is it dangerous ?

    This exam requires X rays. The risk induced by the rays is insignificant on an individual level. In any case, the benefit to find a cancer as early as possible (and to be cured) is superior to the risk of being exposed to X rays.

     

    Important :

    As for all examinations, it's imperative to bring the old examinations for comparison.

     

  • ULTRASOUND/DOPPLER

    How does it work ?

    An Ultrasound image is obtained by means of ultrasounds delivered by a probe that is applied directly on the part of the body, which is being examined. A wave of Ultrasound propagates through the human body et partly "rebounds" when it changes environment. The signal is gathered by the probe and transformed into an image. The Doppler allows to examine blood circulation. It uses the same principle as a radar, but here a road is replaced by blood vessels and cars by red blood cells.

     

    Is it dangerous ?

    Absolutely not. Ultrasounds are inoffensive and Ultrasound screen can be used as often as needed.

  • SCAN

    How does it work ?

    Scan is a tube of X-rays turning around the body area, which is being examined. Detectors gather beams of rays attenuated according to the thickness and quality of tissues they pass through. The data is analyzed by a powerful calculator, which allows to reconstruct the image, veritable "piece" of the human body. The pieces could be piled up and produce a 3D image. Iodine based contrast medium could be injected intravenously to ameliorate the quality of diagnosis of the examination.

     

    Is it dangerous ?

    As radiographies, the scan deliver X rays. The dose is more important for the scan, but it stays within acceptable limits. For example, a dose delivered during a brain scan is equivalent to an annual dose of natural radiation (conferring radiographies), meaning 4 round trips Paris/New York by plane!

     

    The same precautions as for radiographies. If an injection of contrast medium is expected, it's necessary to signal all preceding allergic or asthmatic reactions; an anti allergic premedication will be given three days before the examination

  • MRI

    How does it work ?

    Magnetic Resonance Imaging produces a very powerful magnetic field, which uses magnetization of atoms of the human body (as a compass) as well as hydrogen atoms(components of water molecules, which constitute the biggest part of our body). The atoms are "excited" by electromagnetic waves and "relax" afterwards by emitting energy. It is those electrical signals that are gathered and analyzed by a calculator to produce an image. As for Scan, intravenous injection of contrast medium could be used if needed.

     

    Is it dangerous ?

    This examination is totally safe. The only inconvenience is the duration of the exam, close to 15 minutes a person has to stay perfectly still in a closed space.

     

    Precautions and possible contraindications

    The use of pacemakers or certain cardiac valves (most often placed before 1995) contraindicate the exam. That is the case with certain cochlear implants and intracerebral clips. In case of possible presence of metallic foreign bodies in orbits (splinters, shrapnel...) radiography of orbits will be done. Also, patients prone to claustrophobia can benefit from premedication.

  • OSTEODENSITOMETRY

    How does it work ?

    This examination uses X rays.

    It measures attenuation of a ray beam by bone and allows to determine bone density and to diagnose and quantify, for example, osteoporosis.

    A radiography of orbits. Finally, patients prone to claustrophobia can benefit from premedication.

  • SPECIALISES EXAMENS

    Puncture biopsies :

    It consist of removal of organ cells (breast, thyroid, liver...) through a needle under MRI or scan surveillance. The cells are sent to a laboratory for analysis.

    Important: risk of hemorrhagic complications of such an exam realized on a patient on anticoagulant of a type AVK (SINTROM, MINISINTROM, COUMADINE, PREVISCAN) is weak, however, it would be appropriate to change to another type of medication 10 days before the exam. The prescription could be made by a treating physician.

     

    Infiltrations :

    It consists of an injection of a product, most often anti-inflammatory of corticoid type, as close as possible to the treated zone (joint, herniated disk...) under radiographic, MRI or Scan surveillance.

    Important: risk of hemorrhagic complications of such an exam realized on a patient on anticoagulant of a type AVK (SINTROM, MINISINTROM, COUMADINE, PREVISCAN) is weak, however, it would be appropriate to change to another type of medication 10 days before the exam. The prescription could be made by a treating physician.

     

    Arthrograms and arthroscanners

    This exam consists of injecting iodine based contrast medium inside a joint in order to analyze its structure (cartilage, ligament...) unseen by other technical means.

    IImportant: risk of hemorrhagic complications of such an exam realized on a patient on anticoagulant of a type AVK (SINTROM, MINISINTROM, COUMADINE, PREVISCAN) is weak, however, it would be appropriate to change to another type of medication 10 days before the exam.

History

RADIOLOGIE CLINIQUE DU TONKIN

 

HISTORY OF RADIOLOGY SERVICES OF THE CLINIC DU TONKIN at Villeurbanne

 

Radiology Services of Tonkin were created at the opening of the Clinic of Tonkin in September 1974. The Clinic of Tonkin has 269 beds with important technical platform, which enriches with years and is capable to guarantee significant medical support as well as all diagnostic acts. It is the story of association of two radiologists, who allowed the creation of Radiology Services in the facilities of the Clinic, but evolution of techniques and needs contributed to expansion of the group, which currently consists of eight specialists radiologists doctors.

CENTRE ORTHOPÉDIQUE CONDORCET

 

CONDORCET ORTHOPEDIC CENTER in Villeurbanne

 

This Center was created in January 2007 and allows to take care of Orthopedic consultations by the doctors of the group.

Radiology and Ultrasound Unit was transferred from the Clinic of Tonkin to facilitate post-operational consultations.

Radiology Services situated on the ground floor of the Condorcet Orthopedic Center guarantee as well diagnostic support to patients having osteoarticular pathologies.
