The Medical – Diagnostic Center “ASKLIPIOS DIAGNOSIS” plays a leading part in the private sector of health services in Crete since 2008.
With its complete and comprehensive staffing by a reliable team of specialized doctors and with the aid of cutting-edge technologies both in the domain of medical imaging, as in the laboratory sector and giving emphasis to continuous upgrading, training and updating, the center has as unique goal people themselves, with absolute respect to their needs. For almost 10 years, it remains consistent to its commitment to provide high quality and innovative health services, investing, above all, in their human dimension.
It is located on the ground floor of a modern and functional building, at the “HANDAX” hall, at the corner of 10, Mahis Kritis street, and Efodou street, with an easy and comfortable access, as well as a comfortable underground parking.
The center was proved to be a “catalyst” in the developments in the Healthcare sector – both at a regional and a wider level.
It is equipped with an innovative, unique in Greece, medical equipment, such as the ultramodern SOMATOM DEFINITION FLASH CT-scanner, made by Siemens. A system of 256 sections of cutting edge technology, with the uniquely high scanning speed of 0.28 seconds and of a large Gantry 78 cm diameter that transforms even the most difficult examinations to routine ones. Allowing not only for the shorter duration of the examination, but also a reduction of radiation of more than 50% compared to the other CT-scanning systems. Coronary angiographic examinations are performed in less than 1 second, while the scan of the entire human body does not last more than 5 seconds!
Being in tune with the needs of the population, we have created the first Oncology, Diabetology and Cardiology department in the private sector. The innovative departments of “ASKLIPIOS DIAGNOSIS”, of Oncology, as well as Diabetology and Cardiology contribute reliably, being targeted at the containment of these chronic diseases, effectively combining clinical practice with proper and early diagnosis, which are necessary for the most effective treatment.
