IT technical solutions are at the highest of levels in Latvia. Foreign patients are offered modern diagnostic examinations. In Capital Clinic Riga, all of the visual diagnostics images are digital. The telemedicine system provides the opportunity to send examinations to other units or health care facilities electronically. Thanks to some special software, images can be zoomed in, zoomed out, have their contrast adjusted, and viewed in soft or hard tissue mode, and accurate measurements can be made. Examinations can be saved on external data carriers (in CD, DVD and other formats). Visual diagnostics images can be printed in high quality in different sizes and types, on photo paper or films, and images from several diagnostic examinations can be combined in one printout from a laser printer. Remote diagnostics are also offered, when the best specialists in the area, diagnostic radiologists, receive visual diagnostic (MRI and CT) examinations from other health care facilities, process information, and are able to reach the required conclusions. Such types of IT solutions are perfect for medical patients from other countries who want to gain a second opinion.
