What is the procedure of diagnostics of pituitary adenoma?
To determine the general picture of the patients, doctors use craniography or standard X-ray examination;
Brain tumors are best determined by means of MRI - the clinic is fitted with the powerful (1.5 Tesla), high field scanners. The devices determine not only the size and location of adenomas, but also the risk of malignization (prior to histology);
Multislice CT is used to evaluate brain function and to visualize the vascular pattern and blood flow in real time.

I found out about this clinic on line,got in touch and went in for a specific treatment that they arehighly rated for with Dr. Elizur. Our initial contact,I trusted it will be helpful for me. I payed quite a lot of cash my visit of 15minutes consultation. I came home to where I live,Switzerland,emailed to schedule the actual procedure,very slow response,and at the end even calling his assistant didn't help,I gave up on the whole thing. No answer for a month now. Nu? I believe Dr. Should be there to help every patients equally with care and to give an answer. I really don't understand what goes on there.
Many thanks to Catherine, Bookimed Doctor-Coordinator, for her prompt responses and sympathy. In a week after application my daughter (with diagnosis tumor of brain stem) was proposed a treatment in Korea. We have a CHANCE! Thank you for everything!
My mother had a microdiscectomy surgery at this hospital about 25 days ago and she was really satisfied with the services. She came to Korea from Mongolia for the surgery by herself. Yet the hospital staff was really supportive and did not let her feel alone. Currently she is still recovering from the surgery. We are very grateful for the Leon Wiltse Memorial Hospital staff for their hospitality and effort.
