Our patients enjoy the most up-to-date diagnostic facilities of the Athens Medical Group, which make it easier for surgeons to make the appropriate treatment options for spinal cord and spinal decompression techniques. Our diagnostic arsenal includes:

  • Computed tomography (CT)
  • Magnetic tomography and angiography
  • Digital angiography
  • PET – SCAN
  • Ultrasounds

Our advanced diagnostic capabilities allow our surgeons to operate even in the most anatomically inaccessible and high-risk areas without medical errors. Thus, difficult and delicate operations to remove tumors in the brain and spinal cord or other sensitive brain and spinal surgeries are carried out with maximum safety and efficiency.

Digital angiography

Digital angiography is a fluoroscopy technique used in interventional radiology to visualize blood vessels with clarity and evaluate various pathological conditions, such as an aneurysm or a stenose.

The procedure involves injecting a pigment (contrast agent) through a thin flexible probe, which is placed in a vessel. The dye makes the vessels visible in the X-ray.
