Chief of the department: Bronov Oleg Yurievich., M.D., Ph.D., associate professor.

In the Pirogov Center the most modern diagnostic equipment is installed. Use of multispiral computer and high-field magnetic resonance tomographs allows to diagnose the tumor lesion of almost any organ at the earliest stages, to reveal specific and nonspecific lung diseases, various pathologies of the brain and spinal cord, diseases of the spine and joints, gastrointestinal tract, urinary and sexual organs system, damage to the cardiovascular system.

The range of equipment used in the Department of Radiology includes:


  • Computer tomograph Phillips Brilliance 64 (64 slices);
  • Computer tomograph Siemens Somatom Difinition Flash (256 slices);
  • Magnetic resonance tomograph Siemens Magnetom Skyra (3 Tesla);
  • Magnetic resonance tomograph GE HD 450 (1,5 Tesla).

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)

Magnetic resonance imaging is a safe method of examining internal organs and tissues using the physical phenomenon of nuclear magnetic resonance.

The main features of the method are absence of X-ray radiation, high soft tissue contrast of images, research in patients with renal insufficiency, and also with intolerance of iodine-containing contrast preparations, the possibility of using various hardware and software kits for diagnosing.

Indications for Magnetic resonance imaging are quite extensive and cover all human organs and systems.

Computed Tomography (CT)

Computer tomography is a method of examining internal organs and tissues based on measuring the attenuation of X-rays. The main features of the method are a wide range of its application, rapid research (scanning of the patient can take place in a few seconds), good contrast of the parenchymal organs (especially when using a contrast medium), studies of patients with the inability to perform MRI, the possibility of using various hardware and software sets for diagnosis.

In our Center, on modern x-ray machines, computer and magnetic resonance tomographs, it is possible to perform the entire range of studies:

  • Study of the brain and spinal cord;
  • Spinal column examination;
  • Research of the musculo-articular system;
  • Study of the organs of the abdominal cavity, gastrointestinal tract;
  • Examination of the liver, bile ducts;
  • Examination of the urinary system;
  • Study of the uterus, appendages, prostate;
  • Breast examination;
  • Heart examination;
  • Investigation of vessels.

An important refinement is that practically all investigations can be performed both on computer and magnetic resonance scanners, however, often the choice of the method of investigation depends on the tasks that are put before the x-ray physician. Our specialists will help you to determine the necessary range of research methods depending on the task.

Diagnosis is an important link in the correct choice of treatment. Highly professional doctors-radiologists and the whole spectrum of modern diagnostic equipment — a guarantee of success when making a diagnosis.

Dear patients, you can find out about all contraindications to research from our specialists.
