Endocrinology

RoNeuro Institute, Cluj-Napoca, Romania

Endocrinology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the endocrine system: thyroid disorders, pituitary, adrenal, gonadal and disorders of calcium metabolism (osteoporosis, osteomalacia).

Endocrine pathology is complex, and the diagnosis requires specific analyses (hormonal dosing, imaging investigations).

Hormonal disorders cause changes in other devices and systems (nerve, cardiovascular, bone, muscular), and early diagnosis is imperative in preventing serious or medium severity repercussions.

Endocrinological Investigations

  • Thyroid ultrasound

    Thyroid ultrasound is a method of ultrasound exploration of the structure of the thyroid gland. It is painless, non-invasive, non-radiant, does not require anesthesia or prior patient preparation and is risk-free.

    By examining thyroid ultrasound, the size, structure and vascularization of the thyroid parenchyma can be evaluated, and localized lesions (node, cysts) or diffuse changes at this level can be identified. In the case of the presence of thyroid nodules, it is possible to differentiate between the benign nodules and those that require further exposition by biopsy. Also, you can monitor the evolution of nodules: changing the number, dimensions or structure. Thyroid ultrasound also allows the detection of pathologically enlarged lymph nodes in the neck area.
