Medical information reviewed by: COSMIN PANTU, MD, Radiologist

Imaging tests provide important information about different parts of the body and help doctors diagnose a condition, determine the severity of a disease and monitor people after the condition is diagnosed . Most imaging tests are painless, relatively safe and non-invasive (meaning they do not require an incision in the skin or the insertion of an instrument into the body).

When it comes to investigations, Centrokinetic relies on the collaboration between the orthopedics team led by Dr. Andrei Ioan Bogdan (primary orthopedic doctor, specialized in sports traumatology, specialized in ankle and foot surgery) and the team of imaging doctors, consisting of:
  • Dr. Sorin Ghiea,  one of the most experienced radiologists in Romania and President of the Romanian Society of Musculoskeletal Imaging
  • Dr. Pantu Cosmin, radiologist specialized in musculoskeletal pathology, MRI, ultrasounds and intraarticular and periarticular infiltrations.

Imaging tests can use the following:

RMN afectiuni ortopedice

MRI in orthopedic diseases

MRI is the most complex method of investigating patients, with the help of which three-dimensional images can be obtained from any part of the body. Unlike X-rays and CT, an MRI does not use radiation, it practically does not irradiate the body.

At the musculoskeletal level , it is the most complex noninvasive investigation, providing information about bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels and nerve structures . It is also the only investigation to quantify joint cartilage lesions. MRI is an extremely useful investigation in bone tumors , providing very important information about the characteristics of the tumor. For examination of the mammary glands, complementary to breast ultrasound and mammography, an MRI examination can sometimes differentiate between malignant or benign lesions and can detect multifocal lesions.
Orthopedic MRI tests examine the knees, ankles, foot, thigh, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, arm and spine.

Musculoskeletal ultrasound

Musculoskeletal ultrasound is a non-invasive, non-radiant and painless scanning method, with a diagnostic role for many conditions, from ruptured ligaments to herniated discs, but also for precise needle guidance during injections.

Even patients with metal implants or cardiac implants can undergo the examination (which is not possible with MRI). In addition, patients are in a more comfortable position and tolerate this method much more easily. Musculoskeletal ultrasound allows real-time dynamic examination of the patient - Static imaging cannot clearly show moving tissues and structures when pain and dysfunction occur. With the help of musculoskeletal ultrasound, the doctor can see what is happening to the joint at that very moment of the movement that causes the pain.

The activity of our Department of Medical Imaging Radiology is complemented by infiltrations under ultrasound guidance, a quick and effective remedy against pain and lack of mobility.


You can find here a detailed list of the prices of individual services. But any correct recovery process is based on a mixed plan of therapies and procedures, customized according to the condition, stage of the condition, patient profile, and other objective medical factors. As a result, in order to configure a treatment plan, with the therapies involved and the prices related to the plan, please make an appointment here for an initial consultation.

Thyroid ultrasound

Thyroid ultrasound is a type of imaging examination that investigates the health of the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is located at the base of the neck, in the front, and is the most important organ for regulating metabolism by producing thyroid hormones. Usually, thyroid ultrasound is a standard procedure during an endocrinology consultation.


Doppler ultrasound of the carotid arteries

The arteries in the neck are very important because they circulate blood to the brain. Doppler ultrasound measures blood flow (direction, speed, volume) from arteries or veins.



Ultrasound is a non-invasive, non-radiant and painless scanning method that provides accurate images of blood vessels, their structure and size. Find out more in this article.



Hip ultrasound is essential in the early detection of hip developmental dysplasia. It is painless, non-invasive, and non-radiant investigation. Find out more
