Clinical Analyses

Clinical analysis or laboratory examination is a set of examinations and tests carried out in clinical analysis laboratories with the aim of diagnosing or confirming a pathology.


An audiogram is a graph showing the ear's perception of various sounds. It is the result of audiometry. This test is carried out by a qualified audiologist who will determine the audiometric tracing of the person being examined. If it is compared with previous tests, it can show possible signs of induced hearing loss or not. People who are exposed to high noise levels due to their work activities should be examined periodically in order to detect the presence of NIHL (Noise-Induced Hearing Loss) or NIHL (Hearing Loss Induced by High Sound Pressure Levels) early on.


It is an examination that allows the large intestine and possibly the end of the small intestine to be analysed. Preparation is required prior to the examination, please ask the team for details.


It is an examination that involves the use of flexible tubes, with tips that can be manoeuvred by the performer, known as endoscopes, which allow images of the digestive tract to be viewed on television monitors.

Ultrasounds and Dopplers

Ultrasound is a complementary means of diagnosis that uses the properties of ultrasound, namely its reflection in the structures of the body, since certain structures reflect the sounds more or less, while others (e.g. water) allow them to pass through.

Ultrasounds performed: abdominal, renal, endovaginal or suprapubic gynaecological, suprapubic or transrectal prostate, pelvic, soft tissue, joint, thoracic, breast, thyroid and salivary gland.

Echo Doppler is a non-invasive test that makes it possible to estimate the flow of blood through blood vessels using ultrasound that focuses on blood cells. Echo Doppler is useful for diagnosing the presence of blood clots, the functioning of lower limb vein valves, heart valves, congenital heart disease, arterial occlusions, peripheral arterial disease of the lower limbs, aneurysms or narrowing of arteries such as those in the neck. This test makes it possible to estimate the speed of blood flow. Doppler ultrasounds performed: carotid-vertebral, venous of the lower or upper limbs, arterial of the lower or upper limbs, hepatic, renal, gynaecological, scrotal and penile.


An echocardiogram is a test that uses sound waves to produce images of the heart, making it possible to diagnose heart disease and valves.


An electrocardiogram is a quick, simple and painless procedure in which electrical impulses from the heart are amplified and recorded. This recording, the electrocardiogram (also known as an ECG), provides information about the part of the heart that triggers each heartbeat (the pacemaker, called the sinoatrial or sinus node), the heart's nerve conduction pathways, as well as the heart rate and rhythm. Sometimes the ECG can show that the heart is enlarged (usually due to high blood pressure) or that the heart isn't getting enough oxygen due to a blockage in one of the blood vessels that feed the heart (the coronary arteries).


It is the service provided by physiotherapists to individuals and populations in order to develop, maintain and restore maximum movement and functional capacity throughout life.


It is a dynamic electrocardiogram that records the heart's electrical activity over a 24-hour period. This test allows the doctor to understand whether the symptoms reported by the patient (palpitations or syncope) correspond to significant changes in the heart rhythm.


It consists of measuring blood pressure over a certain period of time at intervals of 15 to 20 minutes during the day and 30 to 60 minutes at night. It is a method of automatically measuring blood pressure using a device placed around the patient's waist which inflates a rubber bag (cuff) fitted to the arm.

The various measurements are stored in this device and then transferred to a computer programme which allows the data collected to be analysed.

Helycobacter Piroli Test

The helicobacter pylori breath test is a test that detects the presence of the helicobacter pylori bacteria in the stomach, which can cause gastritis, ulcers and cancer. The test consists of ingesting a carbon-labelled substance and then blowing into a plastic bag.
