When deemed medically necessary, FirstMed’s diagnosticians will use various tests and procedures to identify or rule out possible diseases or disorders. Whether you are in need of an x-ray or ultrasound, a mammogram or laboratory test, we will provide thorough and timely diagnostic results with our modern equipment and on-site lab. For certain diagnostic procedures which cannot be conducted at our clinic, such as MRI, CT, or PET special scans, they can be easily organized locally through our extensive partner network.
X-Ray and mammography
In some situations, X-ray imaging is essential. Particularly in the case of trauma and chest disease, where doctors can diagnose and treat fractures, identify pneumonia and other medical problems.
We operate the X-ray equipment under strict control from the Hungarian health authorities to ensure that all radiation exposures are kept to the absolute minimum. Doctors at FirstMed only order X-rays when medically indicated.
Mammography is a special type of X-ray of the breasts, which is used to screen breast cancer and also used as a diagnostic procedure for breast cancer in women who have symptoms, such as a lump. Mammography can typically spot lesions one-fifth the size of those that can be felt by hand during self-examination or clinical breast examination by a healthcare professional. The screening can pick up about 40% of cancers that are too small to detect by touch on clinical examination.
Using our ultrasound machine, our doctors can generate high resolution images of different body regions such as the thyroid, breast, abdomen, pelvis as well as dynamic studies to check for problems with blood flow in arteries and veins.
We also have the technology for 4D or real time 3-dimensional fetal images for prenatal patients as part of their routine care. As most people are aware, ultrasound is a very safe technology without the risks of radiation exposure that other imaging modalities carry. With this in mind, we try to make the fullest use of this excellent technology to enhance patient care.

With the 4D scanning technology we can obtain amazing real time 3D images of your baby with extraordinary details. Parents have the chance to see their baby smile, yawn, suck on his little fingers, or scratch her little nose and display other behaviors of a newborn baby.
This procedure takes 20-30 minutes. First a fetal wellness check is conducted, and then some time is spent on obtaining the best possible images of the baby. The best time for this exam is about 25 weeks into the pregnancy.
