Ultrasound examinations Warsaw

The Krajmed Medical Centre has an Ultrasound Clinic run by Dorota Kołątaj, PhD, with 27 years of experience in the daily work of clinical ultrasound diagnostics, including 22 years of experience as a scientific assistant at the Oncology Centre – Institute in Warsaw. Ultrasound examinations are performed with a very high quality PHILIPS HD 15 ultrasound scanner, equipped with modern functions, which enable clinical evaluation at a high level of certainty. We use a high-resolution probe (12 MHz linear) to assess changes in size of 1-3 mm. The aim of our ultrasound laboratory is to detect the smallest possible lesions that require rapid further diagnosis or treatment.

In our clinic in Warsaw, we provide professional diagnostics and monitoring:

  • Thyroid – this type of examination allows us to diagnose and analyze the changes in the thyroid gland. Thyroid ultrasound detects and allows to assess the size of the will, nodules or cysts. The doctor performing this examination is able to recognize the features of hyperactivity, hypothyroidism, inflammation, Hashimoto’s disease, Graves-Basedow’s disease, lymphomas and neoplastic changes. This examination is also used for preoperative and postoperative evaluation, thyroid bed monitoring, thyroid evaluation during puberty, before planned pregnancy and during pregnancy. It is one of the basic monitoring tests during the already implemented treatment. With its use, it is possible to assess the effect of drugs and functioning of the thyroid gland during the recommended therapy.


  • Breasts – this examination allows to exclude suspicion or diagnose various types of nodules, cysts, the cause of breast pain, mastopathy and thickening. Breast ultrasound is also performed to evaluate the implants and as a follow-up examination after mammography. It is also used for control tests – breast ultrasound is used regularly in cancer prevention (it becomes an aid and a complement to self-examination of breasts). Remember that it is breast cancer that is the cause of death of the largest number of women in the year.
  • Lymph nodes – this examination allows you to diagnose symptoms such as enlargement, pain in the cervical, axillary, inguinal and abdominal lymph nodes. Lymph node ultrasound is also used to assess the lymphatic system in haematological and oncological diseases. It becomes a tool for the exclusion or diagnosis of lymph node diseases and the analysis of the severity of the changes. It is also a control test during the therapy already implemented.


  • Head and neck diseases – neck ultrasound is performed to evaluate all organs of the neck, blood vessels and soft tissues. This type of ultrasound examination is the basis for the diagnosis of thyroid diseases, lymph node enlargement, the cause of pain, inflammation, swelling, thickening, tumors, cysts, palatal tonsils, salivary glands and many others. Neck ultrasound allows to diagnose the condition, assess the stage of the disease, is a control test during the applied therapy to analyze its effects and improve the patient’s health. It gives a clear picture of the correctness of the treatment or is a signal to change the treatment.
  • General and internal diseases:
    1. Abdomen
      The ultrasound examination allows to assess the condition of abdominal organs – liver, pancreas, gallbladder and bile ducts, spleen, kidneys, adrenals, urinary bladder, blood vessels, abdominal aorta, retroperitoneal space. Abdominal ultrasound allows to diagnose, assess the stage of progress or exclude the suspicion of diseases and changes such as aneurysms, inflammation, neoplastic changes, causes of pain. Abdominal ultrasound is also used during treatment to analyse the improvement of health or to react to possible lack of treatment results.
    2. Prostate
      Prostate ultrasound is a transabdominal evaluation of the size and shape of the prostate. Using this examination it is possible, among other things, to diagnose and evaluate urine retention in the bladder as a result of prostate enlargement.
