Examinations

Gastroenterological Diagnostics
In gastroscopy, a flexible examination device (endoscope) is inserted through the mouth in order to examine the organs of the upper digestive tract: the esophagus, stomach and upper portion of the small intestine. Many diseases such as gastritis or enteritis, reflux (heartburn), stomach ulcers or infections (h. pylori) can thus be detected safely and quickly. Usually, a tissue sample is obtained during the examination, which is then sent to a histological institute for analysis. This examination must be performed on an empty stomach (no food, drink or medication the day of the examination). The examination is not painful and may be carried out under sedation, if so desired.
In colonoscopy, the entire colon can be examined with a flexible examination device. This is the most effective screening procedure for colorectal cancer. It is also a requirement for diagnosis of numerous bowel disorders, such as enteritis, diverticula and polyps. During the course of the procedure, samples may be obtained and masses (polyps) may be removed. Prior to the procedure, a complete emptying and cleansing of the colon is required. This can be ensured by appropriate preparation. This examination must be performed on an empty stomach (no food, drink or medication the day of the examination). The procedure may be carried out under sedation, if so desired.
The abdominal ultrasound facilitates examination of the internal organs such as the liver, spleen, kidneys, pancreas, gallbladder, urinary bladder, aorta, lymph nodes and even the intestine. This is important in the context of preventive care, and is an essential component in the resolution of abdominal discomfort and diseases of the aforementioned organs. The abdominal ultrasound examination also plays an important role in the early detection of organ damage in patients with hypertension and diabetes.

In order to enable optimal viewing conditions during the abdominal ultrasound examination, your stomach should be empty (no food 4 to 6 hours prior to procedure). Try to avoid foods that could cause bloating the day before the examination, if possible.
