Ultrasonography is a fundamental imaging test for the evaluation of the rectum, anus and nearby structures. It is a very useful tool for diagnosing muscle injuries, inflammation, infections and even tumors. In many cases, it provides valuable information about the functioning of these structures.
It is of paramount importance of fecal continence evaluation and in many cases of constipation, when the patient has difficulties to defecate.
The first contact of Dr. Fábio with the technique dates back to 2005, still in medical residency in Coloproctology. Just when the first modern equipment for 360º anorectal ultrasound arrived in Brazil, by the hands of Prof. Sthela Regadas, pioneer in this technique in Brazil.
And after following several cases, he delved into courses on the technique given by Dr. Stella.
Upon returning to Brasília in 2007, Dr. Fábio brought the technique. Now, 15 years later and after almost two thousand tests performed, Colono has become a reference in the North and Midwest regions, from where it receives almost half of the patients for this test.
At Colono, your exam will be carried out carefully by Dr. Fábio.
