REG of vessels of the brain( rheoencephalography)
- 10 Sep 00:30
In everyday life of a person, it is not always time to monitor his health and understand that something wrong with the body. Our health varies with each passing day, depending on the type of activity. After all, everything in our body is interconnected: if one of the organs starts to fail, another time will be switched off after it.
If we are constantly in a sedentary position, blood circulation in the regions of the back, neck and brain is eventually violated, which leads to certain complications. All this leads to the development of headaches and we traditionally drink a pill or go for a survey. About one of such surveys - rheoencephalography, we will now talk.

REG - What Is It?
Rheoencephalography, or as its abbreviated name, REG is a professional medical version of the assessment and analysis of blood circulation within the human brain. REG allows you to get plenty of information about human health, as well as the state of the brain both at the sites and the entire brain as a whole.
With the help of rheoencephalography, any qualified medical worker will be able to obtain detailed information on vascular tone in a specific area of the brain, as well as the general state of blood flow to the brain. In addition, it is this procedure performed on the vessels of the brain that allows you to check and evaluate:
- quality and viscosity of the blood;
- speed and propagation level of such element as pulse wave;
- to estimate the course and flow velocity of the bloodstream;
- is the degree of expressiveness of vascular reactions at the regional level.
The reoencephalography of vessels located in the brain is carried out using a special recording device called the reographer. In order to carry out the procedure, a person is first put on his back, asking him to relax and close his eyes. After that, a qualified medical worker applies special metal electrodes to certain areas of the body. The electrodes are fixed directly on the head with the help of fastening rubber years.
How do you do the procedure? In order to maximize the sensitivity of the nature and as a result, to obtain more accurate data, the electrodes before application apply a special lubricated conductive gel lubricant. It should be noted that beforehand, those areas of the skin, which will be imposed electrodes, need to be carefully treated with alcohol to degrease.
In the case when the procedure chooses the largest and most widely distributed phantomastoidal radionuclide REG, one contact electrode is located directly on the apical appendage, while the other is superimposed directly above the eyebrow. After the procedure of fixing through all the electrodes passes a small, weak current discharge, and just because of this small current discharge and fix all the necessary conditions for further work of the vessels in particular and the whole brain as a whole.
The most basic, basic method of cerebral regurgitation is the difference between the electrical conductivity of such elements of the human body as blood and skin. As a result, a small discharge of current, harmless to humans, causes the corresponding pulse fluctuations in the region of the investigated area.
Rheoencephalography is a non-invasive procedure. Non-invasive procedures are procedures in which the human skin does not have any, even minimal, effects on surgical instruments at all. In other words, nobody discovers a patient, and even nobody will take blood from a finger or from a vein to an analysis.
In which cases is REG assigned?
Rheoencephalography is prescribed only in cases where it is required:
- is a qualitative operative diagnosis of vascular damage located in the field of the brain;
- precise control of circulatory processes after operations or injuries;
- Evaluation Hypertension;
- evaluation of brain health at such moments as pituitary adenoma, encephalopathy;
- brain evaluation after a stroke or after a person suffering from ischemia;
- search for causes for the emergence and formation of a SVD or VSD.
Since in the process of reoencephalography in relation to a patient-person there is no action, related or reminiscent of injury, it is the REG-procedure is by far the most harmless and sensitive procedure for diagnostics of the vessels of the brain.
Such a diagnostic medical procedure as reoencephalography, may be designed not only for diagnostic purposes, but also for preventive purposes, because this procedure will not bring any harm to a person.
This procedure is especially needed for representatives of the old or the elderly, as the characteristics of the vessels deteriorate at a time warp. In the end, the characteristics may deteriorate to the degree of pathology education, and this is best known in advance.
Due to this, qualified medical personnel can prescribe man's indications for reoencephalography:
- headache pain or severe dizziness attacks of the most diverse nature;
- CHMT, as well as different degrees of severity of injury in the region of the cervical spine;
- is a hereditary predisposition, that is, the presence of relatives with vascular lesions;
- suspected of vegetative-vascular dystonia;
- is not groundbreaking reduction of memory, hearing or vision.
Results and Decoding of
There are several characteristics on the basis of which decoding of the received data takes place. This is the shape of the wave, the amplitude and its magnitude, as well as the location and origin of the main wave. The combined combination of all these data will help to ascertain with maximum precision the natural, organic changes in the brain from processes of negative nature. In addition, it allows you to know the location of the lesion center without surgical intervention in the cranial box.
The wave may be either a catastrophic or an anticoagulous phase, that is, in fact, either a canopy or a steep descending wave. Also, the catastrophe has a specialized, that is, a dicrotic tooth, which in most cases is located right in the middle of the cataract.
It should be noted that various pictures, shown through the reoencephalogram, can be characteristic of a wide variety of human diseases, among which can be noted:
- cerebral atherosclerosis, which clearly shows a smoothed wave with a flattened vertex. No extra waves;
- atherosclerosis, at which the waves are similar to domes or arches;
- is a decreased arterial tone, which shows an over-inflated amplitude, as well as a short ankle and its increased steepness. Discotary tooth is displaced and has large dimensions;
- is an elevated arterial tone, in which a small amplitude is already visible, the ankle's steepness is very small, but the size is very elongated;
- vascular dystonia, in which additional waves are visible in the area of the cataract and there is one or more floating teeth;
- hypertension, in which the amplitudes and shape of the curves are strongly different from each other.
Also, with the help of rheoencephalography, a qualified specialist can establish some effects of a stroke, as well as establish a person's pre-dilation state, migraine and various kinds of hematoma.
The benefits of redocephalography of the
REG of vessels of the brain are completely safe for human health, so that this procedure can be sent to a person even if he is completely healthy, that is purely for the sake of prophylactic purposes. Of course, this survey method is used for so long that it can already be considered somewhat morally obsolete method, but the effectiveness of its conduct is still not refuted.
In order to conduct a reoencephalography study, there is no need to create any special laboratory area. In addition, this method does not require high costs both from the side of money and from time. The procedure, together with functional devices, removes detailed evidence of both the work of the veins and the work of the arteries, and separately. This greatly simplifies further diagnostics in the treatment of diseases.
It should be noted that this procedure is not contraindicated by minors. Today, rheoencephalography is used both for the primary, initial examination of newly born infants, and for the examination of children, adolescents and adults throughout their lives.
As for some other drug treatments, among which are the CT and, of course, tomography, magnetic resonance classification, these procedures can give a more complete picture of the disease or general condition of the human body.
But the whole problem of these procedures and treatments with ultrasound Doppler, is that these procedures today are not equally shared. As a result, the queue of those who need this procedure remains quite large.
But there is still a category of patients who need this kind of study to be regular. For example, this procedure is necessary in the postoperative period. So skilled medical workers also resort to reoencephalography. Contraindications
By itself, such a method of procedure as rheoencephalography practically has no restrictions, so the process does not involve a violation of medical skin.
Of course, in some cases, spasms of the vessels of the brain may occur, but this occurs more because of stress, and not through the procedure itself. In addition, the effect of these spasms in the brain is short-lived, not long-lasting.
That's why reoencephalography is not recommended for overly nervous people or people with unbalanced psyche. Of course, the patient must be reassured immediately before the procedure is performed. In the other there are no contraindications to this procedure.
