Blood and urine tests

During the consultation or screening we can always perform a blood and urine test. It is also possible to make an appointment for these tests only. These tests give us a lot of information about the functioning of the kidneys and liver, the cholesterol, sugar level, blood diseases such as leukemia can be excluded here. Furthermore, signs of prostate cancer, the operation of the thyroid, but also vitamin deficiencies and infections incl. STDs, are checked. Depending on your individual state of health, other more specific blood or urine tests may of course be appropriate.

Cardiovascular disease is still the leading cause of death in the Western world. Regardless of age, this is and remains a very important study. Thanks to prompt diagnosis and treatment, we can prevent a lot. Here we take into account your family burden, age, lifestyle, complaints, etc.. We also take a case-by-case approach. We have some basic surveys that we will do during the consultation. We will take a electrocardiogram followed by a stress test. In doing so, your blood pressure and heart rate monitored and we can detect constrictions on the coronary arteries. After that, a echo of the heart (echocardio). Further investigations may result from this consultation. For example, a 24-hour blood pressure monitoring, a a MIBI scan, CT scan of the coronaries (coronary arteries), Holter monitoring, or cardiac MRI, all judging by symptoms or family cardiovascular history. In heart disease, we first try with medication treat the disease. Sometimes medication can also be started preventively. In some cases, a intervention be performed. This involves surgery. This is often done through the groin or wrist. For this we cooperate with the Middelheim Hospital or the Onze Lieve Vrouweziekenhuis in Aalst. Of course, a hospital of your choice is also possible.

Bladder, liver, kidneys, spleen, pancreas, gallbladder, prostate are mapped. Here we look especially for stones, polyps, cysts, cancers . Of course, medication can be started to treat various diseases. Sometimes medication is not enough and further examinations are needed. Think of a rectoscopy (the last 45 cm are checked) or colonoscopy (complete bowel examination).

Rectoscopy or colonoscopy

During a colonoscopy a camera is used to look inside the colon under light anesthesia. After all, colon cancer is one of the top 3 most common cancers in both men and women and usually starts with small polyps that can be removed before they degenerate into cancer. The examination can be done from the age of 30. Your family and personal history will of course be taken into account. A microscopic examination for the presence of blood in the stool (iFOB test) also helps determine whether you - and with what frequency -, qualify for a colonoscopy. During the colonoscopy, any polyps present will also be removed (polypectomy).

When stomach burden is a gastroscopy often recommended. This involves looking into the stomach with a camera under light or, if desired, full anesthesia. This allows your specialist to detect stomach or esophageal infections, ulcers or cancers, among other things. Sometimes a virtual colonoscopy be requested by the gastroenterologist. This is a method of examining the colon using a scanner. This examination will be used when a colonoscopy is not possible. Furthermore, the gastroenterologist may also screen for food intolerances. This can be through a lactose and fructose intolerance test or breath hydrogen test. They also represent disorders of the anal canal. Also called proctology mentioned. This covers a large group of different conditions. Consider, for example hemorrhoids, fisuren, etc.

Pain clinic

In our pain clinic, we give epidural infiltrations. During an epidural infiltration, you will receive an anti-inflammatory drug + painkiller through an injection in your back. This treatment will reduce your pain symptoms. The anti-inflammatory drug is placed in the epidural space in your low back or neck. This space runs from the base of your skull to the tailbone and is located in the spinal canal. This space contains connective tissue, blood vessels and nerve roots. These nerve roots exit from the spinal cord through the epidural space and can become irritated by various causes, causing pain, swelling and tingling. The goal of treatment is to locally remove the inflammation and swelling, thus reducing your pain and improving your function. Indications are: 1. Hernia2. Stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal).3. Pain after accident or wear and tear (arthrosis)

Vascular Medicine

Our vascular surgery consultation, or also known as vascular surgery, specializes in theExamine and treat conditions related to blood vessels (veins andarteries), as well as lymphatic vessels. During the consultation, there will be a questioning and clinical examination ofthe patient, after which a duplex examination (echo-doppler) can be performed. IfIf necessary, further investigations can be requested such as a CT scan, MRI, etc.

Treatments can range from medication, minimally invasive surgery (laser, treatment with a balloon or stent,...), or classic open surgeries (bypass, artificial artery,...). For the surgical procedures They are affiliated with the AZ Monica in Deurne. A treatment plan is drawn up in consultation with the patient. It often makes sense to perform a preventive screening of the blood vessels. For example, with a duplex examination the presence of constrictions and/or calcifications thv the carotid artery or an aneurysm thv the abdominal artery are diagnosed. A narrowing of the carotid artery is one of the causes of stroke (cerebral infarction or CVA). This involves an interruption in the blood supply to the brain. Symptoms of a stroke include temporary or permanent paralysis of an arm and/or leg, blindness, speech disorders...

Sometimes a localized dilation of the abdominal artery (aneurysm) can also occur, due to a weak artery wall. Patients often do not know they have an aneurysm, as it does not cause any symptoms. As the size of the bulge increases, so does the risk of rupture. This is a life-threatening situation, with a fatal outcome in 75-80% of cases. An early diagnosis is therefore important. You can contact them for the following problems: Varicose veins: Diagnosis, ultrasound/duplex and treatment: dry spray (foam/sclerotherapy), laser ablation and surgical removal.Arteries: Diagnosis, ultrasound/duplex and treatment: from endovascular treatment (balloons and stents) to classical surgery.Thrombophlebitis and deep venous thrombosis: diagnosis, echo/duplex and treatmentWound problems: chronic and/or complex wounds that heal poorlyLymphedema and lipedema: diagnosis, echo/duplex and treatmentAccess Surgery: vascular access for dialysis, medication...Minor surgery: suspicious skin spots, subcutaneous fat globules....


You can visit our radiology department for a mammography and/or ultrasound of the breasts. So can detect breast cancer at an early stage. It is estimated that 1 in 12 women get breast cancer sooner or later, and it is the leading cause of death in women between the ages of 45 and 69. It is recommended that every woman have this examination once every 2 years starting at age 45. If there are breast cancers in the family or if you have an increased risk profile, it is possible that your specialist will recommend mammography from a younger age or at a higher frequency. Bone fractures such as hip fractures can cause significant complications in old age and are even a major cause of death in old age. Fortunately, this can largely be avoided through preventive and therapeutic measures vv "weakened bone" or osteoporosis. With the help of a bone densitometry or 'bone measurement' we can determine the density of the bones and the degree of osteoporosis (osteopenia to osteoporosis). Thus, your specialist will check whether you are eligible for (reimbursement of) bone-supporting medication to avoid bone fractures in the future. Fat percentage scanning and distribution in the body. Using this examination, the fat percentage and fat distribution in your body can be determined. This can be a useful tool to evaluate and adjust the effects of your lifestyle changes under the guidance of our specialist. Also very appropriate when starting and following up weight reducing medication such as ozempic. You can also visit our radiology department for all kinds of ultrasounds.- ultrasound abdomen (ultrasound abdomen), echo cardio (ultrasound cardiography), echo cervical vessels (echo doppler), ultrasound prostate (transrectal echo) and ultrasound breasts.

Nose-throat-ear specialist

You can contact us for a screening examination of the upper respiratory tract as part of medical check-ups. Through a very thin flexible endoscope, after a light local anesthetic ( nasal spray), the nasal cavity, the space behind the nose and the pharynx are viewed down to the level of the vocal cords. Also, the ears examined and a hearing test performed. As a result, the following problems detected Becoming: Signs of chronic inflammation of the nasal sinuses (sinusitis), nasal septal defects, allergy, risk of respiratory arrests during sleep (obstructive sleep apnea), signs of high reflux ( reflux of acidic stomach contents down the throat), detection of benign as well as malignant neoplasms on the vocal cords (smokers), determination of hearing loss and then also prescription for a trial of hearing aids. Dr. Ryzenberg-Czajkowski is affiliated with the KLINA in Brasschaat where the surgical treatment of most common nasopharyngeal and neck pathology is done (nasal septal surgery, endoscopic sinus surgery, thyroid and salivary gland tumors).

As pneumologists, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the airways and the lungs. Through spirometry/bodybox, a widely used test for lung function, we can measure airflow into and out of the lungs, which helps us identify conditions such as asthma, COPD and restrictive lung diseases. We may also prescribe additional tests, such as a chest radiograph or CT scan of the chest, to detect any abnormalities in the lungs. Our goal is to early be able to diagnose various lung diseases, ranging from chronic conditions such as COPD to acute problems such as pneumonia or pulmonary embolisms. A wide range of symptoms can indicate possible lung problems, including shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing, chest pain and fatigue. By taking these symptoms seriously and performing a thorough pneumologic examination, we strive to provide our patients with the best possible care and treatment, improving their quality of life.
