Radiofrequency ablation / RF

Catheter ablation is a minimally invasive X–ray surgical procedure for the treatment of tachycardia and arrhythmias using an endovascular catheter. At the same time, radio frequency current or cold is used to destroy the arrhythmogenic substrate.

In our practice, we more often use the method of radiofrequency ablation (RF), which is based on the point effect of the electrode on a site with impaired conductivity, or a source of pathological pulsation.

Radiofrequency ablation of the heart refers to low-risk operations that effectively […]

Radioiodotherapy for diffuse or nodular toxic goiter

Radioiodotherapy is effective not only in the treatment of thyroid cancer. This method of therapy can effectively replace surgery for diffuse or nodular toxic goiter. Pathologies are characterized by increased hormone production, which causes sweating, palpitations, tremor of the hands and other symptoms that aggravate the human condition.

In such cases, radioiodine therapy is used to destroy areas of the gland that actively produce hormones, thereby causing thyrotoxicosis. Iodine isotopes accumulate in glandular cells and reduce their functional activity, which contributes […]

PET/CT (positron emission computed tomography) studies of the whole body

PET/CT is performed using different radiopharmaceuticals, depending on the organ under study:

PET/CT with glucose (18F-FDG) – for lung cancer, tumors of unknown localization, lymphomas, breast cancer, colorectal cancer, malignant melanoma of the skin, gynecological oncological diseases (ovarian cancer, cervical cancer), esophageal cancer, testicular cancer.

PAT/CT with methionine – for diseases of the brain.

PET / CT with choline (11C) – for diseases of the prostate gland, parathyroid adenoma.

What problem does PET/CT solve?

Diagnosis of neoplasms at the earliest stages.

Assessment of the prevalence of […]
