General Practitioner Department

In the medical profession, a general practitioner (GP) is a medical doctor who treats acute and chronic illnesses and provides preventive care and health education to patients of all ages.

A general practitioner manages types of illness that present in an undifferentiated way at an early stage of development, which may require urgent intervention. The holistic approach of general practice aims to take into consideration the biological, psychological, and social factors relevant to the care of each patient’s illness. Their duties are not confined to specific organs of the body, and they have particular skills in treating people with multiple health issues. They are trained to treat patients of any age and sex to levels of complexity that vary between countries.

Radiology Department Sonographer

Radiology is called the specialty of medicine that uses the imaging technologies of internal organs or other parts of the body to diagnose and many times treatment of diseases.

Imaging was first achieved with X-rays (ionizing radiation) discovered by Wilhelm Röntgen in 1895, so their application to medicine was named “radiology”.

Sonography – Ultrasound is a medical imaging method that produces images of human body parts using ultrasounds.

Ultrasonic imaging device is a device with an architecture similar to that of the computer that receives signals from a transceiver, processes them, and converts them to images in black and white or color form. The transceiver is the peripheral component of the machine that sends ultrasound to the body in the direction that the examiner defines and simultaneously accepts their reflections and turns them into a picture.

Each body tissue has special behavior in ultrasound and thus reflects, refractive, or “absorbs” a different amount of waves than it accepts. So the computer after receiving reflections and knowing the number of waves sent yields a color or a shade of gray on each tissue and displays them on screen like images. These images are studied by the examiner and in turn export diagnostic conclusions.
