As the ministry notes, the CT room is located on the same floor of the hospital with an MRI and an angiograph. Thanks to this, patients do not need to travel to other medical facilities/to other floors for further examination. Therefore, in a short period of time, doctors receive the maximum necessary information about a person’s health status.

All studies using CT are carried out around the clock and free of charge under the relevant agreement concluded by the hospital with the National Health Institution under the Medical Guarantee Program.

Today, computed tomography is the main diagnostic method in medicine, which provides a detailed image of the internal structures of the human body.

Thanks to the latest equipment, doctors are able to timely and reliably diagnose various pathologies and diseases, as well as provide medical care to patients with diseases of the heart and blood vessels, cancer, acute surgical pathology, traumatic injuries, problems with the respiratory system, skeletal lesions, etc.
