Laboratory Tests and Ultrasound


Our laboratory offers tests done according to international standards.

According to the common practice, tests should be done on an empty stomach, unless the doctor recommends differently. This means that before tests are done, patients should not consume anything, including drinks (apart from water), for at least six hours.


Basic laboratory tests:
  • Microbiology: urine test; throat, respiratory tracts, eyes, skin and genitourinary system swabs
  • Food intolerance tests
  • Allergens: airborne allergens, food allergens, allergy panels (e.g.: milk + gluten, coeliac disease, atopic panel)
  • Laboratory analyses: general analysis, hematology, arterial blood gas (ABG), coagulation profile, blood chemistry, cardiac markers, serological tests, diagnostics of thyroid diseases, hormonal tests, tumor markers, diagnostics of diabetes and anemia, osteoporosis, hepatitis (A, B and C), diagnostics of infectious diseases, immunology and autoimmunology, blood group serology, vitamin levels, etc.
  • Genetics: human papillomavirus infections, genitourinary system infections, hepatitis, HIV, genetic disorders and their predispositions, respiratory system infections, systemic infections
  • Diagnostics of cardiac, hepatic, rheumatologic diseases and anemia
  • Panels for men and women (40+)
  • Diagnostics of fertility impairment (after miscarriage), cervix preventive tests
  • Safety and preoperative panels
  • Panels for pregnant women (different trimesters); safe pregnancy panel

  • For integrative oncological consultation we required: morphology, urine general examination glucose, insulin, hepatic tests, GGTP, GFR, calcium, magnesium, iron, urea, creatinine, TSH, total IgE, folic acid, homocysteine, vitamin B12, vitamin D3, tumor markers: Ovary (CA 125, CA 72-4, TPS), Pancreas and bile ducts (CA 19-9), Colon and rectum (CEA, CA 19-9), Stomach (CEA, CA 72-4, CA 19-9), Breasts (CA 15-3, Ca 72-4, BRCA1), Esophagus (Ca 72-4), Lungs (NSE, Cyfra 21-1), Hepatitis (CEA, AFP), Prostate (PSA, PAP), Bladder (TPA), Leukemia (beta 2-microglobulin, LDH, CRP)

Maintrac

Maintrac is a highly sensitive microscopic method that is used for identifying CETCs (circulating epithelial tumour cells). Maintrac precision diagnostics allows patients and physicians to use the dynamics and characteristics of tumour cells to make joint treatment decisions. It can be a turning point in the decision made on a patient´s care.

Ultrasound

We offer standard ultrasound examinations of internal organs. Depending on the examination type, a doctor’s referral may be required.


Performed Ulstrasound:
  • Abdomen and lesser pelvis
  • Neck (thyroid gland, salivary glands, lymph nodes)
  • Thyroid gland
  • Salivary glands
  • Lymph nodes
  • Breast
  • Soft tissue (hernia, abdominal wall, muscles)

Preparation for abdominal Ultrasonography:

• Espunisan or Esputicon 3x daily 3 tablets (to be purchased at pharmacies without a prescription) should be taken 3 days before ultrasound. It is best to eat capsules after each meal.
• On the day before the examination, no heavy-digestible food (meat, fried products, raw fruit and vegetables, sweets) or aerated drinks should be consumed. The last meal should be eaten around 7 p. m.
• Patients who are obese and prone to constipation should take laxative measures – but no later than 24 hours before the examination. In order to make the ultrasound more readable, people prone to chronic constipation should use probiotics 7 days before the examination.
• On the day of the examination you should take 3 capsules of Espunisan in the morning, fast, take care of the emptying, do not smoke and do not drink coffee. The tested person may drink water in small amount but no later than 2 hours before the test.
• Medical records should be provided for each examination: previous ultrasound, CT, MRI results, hospital discharges, laboratory results. Results can be attached to the patient’s electronic card
• If the examination involves a bladder or genital tract, you should fill in a bladder – you drink 1. 5 hours before the examination 3 glasses of non-gaseous water and do not urinate.


Instructions for breast Ultrasonography:

Breast ultrasonography should be performed between the 1st and 10th day of the menstrual cycle. If no bleeding occurs, ultrasound can be reported on any day of the cycle. If there are previous ultrasound tests and mammograms, they should be brought to the clinic.


Equipemnt

At IMC we use one of the most technologically advanced USG devices – VOLUSON E6, which is used in a few centres in Poland. GE Healthcare’s VOLUSON E6 is a premium USG clinical camera with the latest generation of 3D/4D imaging software. The device has been created primarily for high quality prenatal, obstetric, gynaecological, neonatal, fetal and radiological examinations of echoes. It sends ultrasonic waves to body tissues and creates precise images of organs on the basis of the information contained in the received echoes.


Consultations:

Aleksandra Steinmetz-Beck PhD
  • General ultrasound

Bioscan

It measures the very low magnetic field of our cells. Bioscan shows the health of the body and identifies problems. We get information such as stress level, organ imbalances, shortages and surpluses in the body.
