Microwave Radiometry in the Diagnosis of Various Urological Diseases

Microwave radiometry is based on measurement of the intrinsic electromagnetic irradiation of a patient’s internal tissues in the ultra-high frequency range. It is used with success in clinical practice. Results of studies of the diagnostic potential of microwave radiometry in different forms of acute pyelonephritis, renal colic, and acute inflammatory diseases of the prostate have demonstrated its informativeness and safety and have determined the value of this method in complex (including early) diagnosis and for monitoring of treatment efficacy. Use of microwave radiometry has been shown to reduce the number of errors and to increase the informativeness of existing X-ray and ultrasound diagnostic methods at the early stages of acute inflammatory diseases of the kidneys and prostate.
