Echoencephalography

Echoencephalography  (EchoEG) - is a non-invasive diagnostic technique of the brain using ultrasonography (ultrasound with a frequency range from 0.5 to 15 MHz/sec), Sound waves of such frequency possess ability to get through body tissue and are reflected from all surfaces, lying on border of  different structure and density tissue (head soft coverings, cranial bones, meninx, medullary substance, neurolymph, blood).  Paraplasms (crushing focuses, debrides, abscesses, cysts, hematomas, etc.) also can be the reflecting structures.

Indication for Echoencephalography  (EchoEG)

EchoEG allows to estimate all brain structures for under 1.5 years children, while their fontanel, through which EchoEG study is pursued, isn’t closed as yet. Echoencephalography for adults is applied, first of all, to identification of the brain mass lesions in the presence of the following pathologies:

headache,
faintness,
head injury,
diffuse and local brain edema, 
intracranial hematomas, 
abscesses,
brain tumors,
intracranial hypertension,
hydrocephalus,
brain inflammatory diseases,
other cerebral diseases.

Echoencephalography (EchoEG) is used for diagnosis of the following diseases:

Brain ischemia, stroke
Brain concussion, contusion
Vertebrobasilar disease
Vegetovascular dystonia (VVD) 
Cerebral blood flow disruption
Headache
Faintness
Tinnitus
Intracranial pressure
Neck injury
Encephalopathy
Parkinson’s disease
Pituitary adenoma
