Clinical Services Available:
A range of screening, diagnostic and interventional procedures are performed. A highly trained and professional radiology team performs and interprets these imaging tests.
CT Scan Machine: Computed Tomography (CT) is a method of body imaging in which a thin X-ray beam rotates around the patient. Small detectors interpret the X-rays that make it through the patient or a particular area of interest. A computer analyzes the data to construct a cross-sectional image. These images can be stored, viewed on a monitor, or printed on film. Siemens 32 slice scanner is installed which scans the patient in minimum time and with minimum radiation dose. The system is equipped with multi-projection volume reconstruction, 3D software- surface, and volumetric renderings. The following CT studies are performed.
- Head. Noncontrast and contrast-enhanced scans are done. Also, perfusion studies are done to assess the flow in diseased and normal brain tissue.
- Multiphasic studies of liver
- Bones & joints
- Soft tissues
- Coronary Angiography
- Angiography –cerebral, thoracic & abdominal aorta, Renal, Carotid, upper and lower limb arteries, etc.
- Virtual bronchoscopy, colonoscopy, endoscopy, etc
- Thin 0.8 mm slices for the inner ear with excellent 3D reconstructions.
- 3D of bones and joints etc.
- CT Guided Biopsy of lung mass, liver mass, renal mass, bone tumors, and other lesions.
CR Radiography plus Fluoroscopy System: Real-time dynamic imaging using x-rays (for the purpose of procedural guidance) is referred to as “fluoroscopy”. A User-friendly, high- performance, CR-based x-ray system is available in the department capable of producing good-quality x-ray images with reasonable use of radiation dose. Such imaging techniques
are commonly associated with contrast medium-aided examinations of the gastrointestinal tract.
Following X-ray Special procedures are performed in the department:
- Barium Procedures like Ba Swallow, Ba Meal, Ba Meal FT and Ba Enema
Ultrasound and Color Doppler:
The Department of Radiology is equipped with the following Ultrasound machines which contribute to the high level of confidence of the Radiologist for evaluation of the lesions and serve as excellent guiding tools for the various Diagnostic and Therapeutic procedures.
Ultrasound Machines in the Department of Radiology
1. Voluson 6E
2. Siemens NX2
3. Siemens ACUSON-X 300 (Installed in ICU)
4. GE Logic 100 (Portable)
These machines are used for diagnostic purposes to carry out various ultrasound
examinations of the abdomen, pelvis, and small parts, as well as intracavitary (transrectal and transvaginal) examinations, antenatal scans, foetal doppler, and anomaly scans. The department has an advanced USG scanner with 3D and 4D applications.
The tissue Harmonics helps for high resolution at depth. The 3D/4D Application further helps to understand better the relations of the lesion with organs in the vicinity. The Color Doppler scanners are extensively used to assess the vascularity of the tumors. The arterial and venous Doppler examinations are carried out for the evaluation of patients with associated peripheral Vascular Diseases and screening as well as diagnosis of Deep Venous Thrombosis.
The portable Ultrasound unit delivers conveniences and versatility with its application in:
1. The ICU for Emergency Scanning of ICU patients
2. Bedside Drainage procedures like
– Pleural & Peritoneal Tapping
– Abscess Aspiration
– Indwelling Pigtail Drainage
3. Nerve Block
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
MRI MACHINE: Magnetic resonance imaging, or MRI, is a non-invasive medical imaging test that produces detailed images of almost every internal structure in the human body, including the organs, bones, muscles and blood vessels. MRI scanners create images of the body using a large magnet and radio waves. No radiation is produced during an MRI exam, unlike X-rays. These images give your physician important information in diagnosing your medical condition and planning a course of treatment.
uMR -570 is designed with a short 150cm magnet, 70cm wide bore,48RF receiver channels, 550 lbs. table weight capacity & 50x50x50 cm field of view. It achieves a new standard in magnet field homogeneity at 1.5 T to help ensure high resolution and image quality. High-performance gradients,uCS 2.0 platform, advanced neurology, advanced cardiology, MSK coils, and more are included.
The following MRI studies are performed.
1. Routine MRI examination
