In the Clinical Diagnostics Laboratory there are diagnostic tests performed for clinical, biochemical, immunochemical, immuno-haematological and blood coagulation disorders, as well as sexually transmitted diseases. The tests are performed to the full extent and according to the standard and certified methods of testing.
Accordingly to e standard requirements the Laboratory unit is participating in the external quality control system. We are offering to perform the blood analysis, determining haematological parameters (such as leukocytes, lymphocytes, erythrocytes, concentration of haemoglobin in blood) with the aid of haematological analyser equipment.
Precise diagnostics is necessary for obtaining the expected result and choosing the most appropriate solution. There are several examination methods of the veins:
Expanded, precise Duplex ultrasound for the blood vessels with the most contemporary Premium class USG equipment; it is performed by the doctors – vein treatment specialists or blood vessels ultrasound specialists. Counter-flow of the blood in veins is measured, it is determined how serious the valves of the veins are damaged, sections of damaged veins are detected. That allows precise and fast evaluation of the venous reflux in the deeper and superficial veins, visual evaluation of the veins, possibility to diagnose thrombosis and other pathologies of veins. Examination of the veins of legs with Duplex US method allows obtaining accurate information about the condition of deep and superficial veins within approximately 10-20 minutes. It also allows determining if veins are damaged and subjected to surgery or blood vessels are healthy, close to the skin and provides only cosmetic inconveniences. Duplex US method is applied also to determine scope of the planned surgery, as well as perform accurate marking of the veins before surgery. Best way to picture examination findings are in a visual form by marking the damaged segments of the veins in scheme and indicating both length of the venous reflux and diameter of veins.
Computer tomography phlegography that is used to evaluate vastness of the thrombosis of deep veins. With other examination methods it is possible to examine deep veins only in sections but application of the computer tomography phlegography allows the possibility to see all system of the deep veins in total.
Diagnostic imaging includes x-ray, ultrasound, mammography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance and other tests. The methods of this diagnostic system are based on the image analysis, which is obtained with the help of modern equipment, allowing to determine the exact diagnosis for many diseases. Diagnostic procedures use endoscopes - optical devices inserted directly into body to carry out a detailed examination of the internal organs and diagnostics from the inside (examination of all digestive system and mucous membrane lining the stomach and intestinal tract) and to do various diagnostic manipulations inside the organ if necessary.
Due to the installed equipment and the qualified specialists we guarantee the high quality of diagnostics during the examination of the following: oesophagus, stomach, duodenum, large intestines. The following examinations and manipulations are performed: endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, diagnostics of Helicobacter pylori, surgical endoscopic treatment of the acute and chronic diseases.
Endoscopy means looking inside and typically refers to looking inside the body for medical reasons using an endoscope, an instrument used to examine the interior of a hollow organ or cavity of the body. Unlike most other medical imaging devices, endoscopes are inserted directly into the organ. Endoscope can also refer to using a borescope in technical situations where direct line of-sight observation is not feasible.
The functional diagnostics undergos examinations, allowing to determine the functional condition of different organs and functional assessment. These methods are generally not invasive. It means that various equipments are used to record the process from the outside.
The functional diagnostics allows to determine the functional condition of the heart, to assess the functional condition of the coronary heart arteries in conditions of the dosed physical stress and evaluate the tolerance of the physical stress and the effectiveness of medicament therapy (veloergometry).
"My wife and I traveled from the United States to Latvia to have a thorough medical checkup. We wanted some procedures that are not easy to schedule and are rather expensive in the United States. At Capital Clinic Riga everything we wanted, from ultrasounds, nutritionists and MRIs were just an email away. The English speaking staff were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. In the U.S., we live in a town with 100,000 people so, it's not exactly a village. Nevertheless, the equipment at the Capital Clinic Riga was more modern than anything to which we would have access without visiting a major metropolitan area. At roughly 10% the price of American services, the difference can easily pay for the trip to Riga. It's not all about money though. The doctors and staff were all professional, kind and seemed to care about our treatment, not just our payment. I can honestly say I have not felt that type of focus from an American doctor for decades. Unfortunately, they seem to be concerned with throughput and generating as much top line revenue as possible. Furthermore, unlike American doctors, the answer to every problem is not simply to prescribe antibiotics to treat the symptoms, unless of course, that is what is absolutely necessary. I wanted a holistic approach to treating my problems so I appreciated an approach that did not necessitate antibiotics. I'm planning to make Capital Clinic Riga a regular part of my health care routine and will be back next year for the same round of exams to see how things may have changed."
"I have to say your clinic is absolutely Good quality in many ways. The services, the speed, the manner of doctor and nurse and reception are very Nice. I Will do my physical examination in your place Every year. And of course introduce to my friends As well. And of course all the helps from You is excellent! Thank You very much."
"I wish to express my appreciation for the excellent care I received from Veselibas Centrs 4 (Capital Clinic Riga). Also, thank you for your personal attention and the professionalism that you showed me. I could not have gone to all the tests that I had done in your clinic without your help. It was good to see a young person take charge and see the job thru from picking me up at my hotel to dropping me off at the airport. A job well done!!The cost of all the tests that I had done during my stay was a real savings. The savings for anyone coming from the Unite States of America is well worth the trip. I will definitely recommend your Veselibas Centrs 4 (Capital Clinic Riga) to all of our clients."
"Please let me with this email express my sincere thank you for having me in Riga to do treatment in Capital Clinic Riga. It was my first time in Latvia and you made me feel very welcome and comfortable, and I can't tell enough how professional and serious everybody is. I had the necessary health help and advice at a very high level, and I will definitely consider coming back for the follow up. I highly recommended your Clinic to all my friends here in the UK, and I'm wishing you more happy patients in future. Can I please also pass my huge thank you to medical tourism manager Ljubov for her immense support before and during the travel, my visit would definitely be more stressful without you."
