The Department of internal medicine provides the following treatment and procedures:
Ascitic fluid tapping involves removing the excess fluid accumulated in the abdominal cavity. The doctor uses a needle to drain the fluid trapped in the abdominal cavity.
A lumbar puncture is also called a spinal tap. It is a diagnostic test in which the doctors take out the cerebrospinal fluid to determine diseases of the central nervous system.
During the procedure, the doctors insert a needle into the space between the two lumbar bones (lower back) to remove the cerebrospinal fluid for testing.
Peripheral Doppler study helps diagnose narrowed arteries or veins, blood clots, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and blood vessel injuries.
It uses high-frequency ultrasound waves to look for the blood flow in the arteries and veins. The test is also called the blood flow study.
- FINE NEEDLE ASPIRATION CYTOLOGY (FNAC)
Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) is a simple and quick test that helps sample superficial masses (lumps and bumps) on the body. It tests for thyroid, lymph nodes and salivary gland diseases. The doctors recommend it to determine any suspected and unsuspected malignancy.
The space between the lung and the chest wall is called pleural space.
Pleural aspiration involves inserting a needle or tube into the space to extract the accumulated fluid around the lungs. Doctors perform the pleural aspiration under real-time ultrasound guidance. The procedure is also called thoracocentesis.
Abscess means the collection of pus from in and around the organ.
Liver abscess aspiration involves draining the abscess from the liver and examining it for diseases. It is an image-guided procedure.
- ULTRASOUND (US) GUIDED LIVER BIOPSY
