    • MRI
    • CT 16Slices etc.

    DIGITAL X RAY:

    One of the most common investigation performed in practice of modern medicine in order to diagnose conditions in the chest, bone, sinuses, skull, or spine. It is the oldest and most frequently used initial form of medical imaging. X-ray is the fastest and easiest way for a physician to view and assess broken bones. It can also be used to diagnose and monitor the progression of diseases.

    ULTRASONOGRAPHY:

  • An ultrasound produces sound waves that pass into the body and sends echoes back to produce images of the internal structures of the body. These sound waves are not harmful to the body or a fetus.
  • Ultrasound can also show internal motion such as blood flowing through the veins, arteries and the beating heart. The sound waves are produced from a microphone like device that the Radiologist moves over the area to be examine
  • Ultrasound is used to create images of soft tissue structures, such as the gall bladder, liver, heart, kidney, female reproductive organs
  • Ultrasound can also detect blockages in the blood vessels. This helps the physician to find out the reasons for pain, swelling or any kind of infection in the body.
  • Transvaginal Ultrasound
  • Ultrasound can also detect blockages in the blood vessels. This helps the physician to find out the reasons for pain, swelling or any kind of infection in the body.
  • Doppler ultrasonography helps to detect moving blood cells or other moving structures and measure their speed and direction of movement. It helps in evaluating blood flow through the major arteries and veins of the arms, legs and neck.
  • CT:

  • CT stands for Computed Tomography.
  • CT gives detailed information of the body by taking cross-sectional images on a multi detector computed tomography.
  • Like conventional x-ray, CT scan uses X- Ray radiation
  • The scanner is particularly good at testing for bleeding in the brain, for aneurysms (when the wall of an artery swells up), brain tumors and brain damage. It can also find tumors and abscesses throughout the body and is used to assess types of lung disease.
  • addition, the CT scanner is used to look at internal injuries such as a torn kidney, spleen or liver; or bony injury, particularly in the spine
  • Multi Detector CT includes whole body scan with coronary, peripheral, abdominal, thoracic, head and neck angiography along with
  • guided biopsy/ FNAC/
  • Drainage
  • CT cisternography
  • CT enterography / Enteroclysis.


  • Depending on the type of exam your physician orders, you may have to drink a flavored liquid/ water before your examination (oral contrast), sometimes liquid has to be inserted per rectally along with intravenous injection of contrast material. Contrast allows for better visualization of  organs within the body.

    A normal kidney function is necessary for the contrast to be removed from the body; therefore the radiologist will check your creatinine levels to ascertain your kidney function before administering the intra venous contrast

    Mammography:

  • Mammography is a specific type of imaging that uses a low-dose x-ray system for examination of the breasts.
  • It plays a central part in early detection of breast cancers because it can show changes in the breast up to two years before a patient or physician can feel them.
  • Current guidelines from various medical agencies and associations recommend screening mammography every year for women, beginning at age 40.


  • MRI:

  • MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It is a diagnostic imaging test that uses strong magnet and radiofrequency waves to produce images of internal organs and structures.
  • MRI is a non invasive procedure, however, your Physician/ Radiologist may request a contrast agent be used to better visualize organs or structures.
  • With 16 times faster imaging, the MRI room transforms itself into a patient-friendly ambience with patient's choice of animations, synchronized soothing music and room lighting.
  • It exemplifies the patient centric nature of the MRI with great imaging technology at its heart. It overcomes patient unfriendly aspects while giving the doctors images that are more precise and more informative.
  • It is essential that the patient alert the technologist if they have a pacemaker, surgical clips, metal objects, or prosthesis. The technologist will determine with the help of the radiologist if the examination should be performed. MR imaging includes whole body study with MR mammography, MRCP, MR angiography, MR Arthogram, Functional MRI & Diffusion Tensor imaging (DTI) etc


  • INTERVENTIONAL PROCEDURES :

  • Interventional procedures include routine biopsy, FNAC, aspiration, tubal recanalisation along with hepatic and renal interventions.
  • In addition interventional procedures include digital subtraction angiography (DSA) with stenting, thrombolysis, venous sampling, chemoport and central line insertions.
  • Hepatic intervention includes such as TIPS, PTC ,biliary dilatation & stenting and tumor embolisation including non hepatic regions.
  • Renal intervention includes PCN and renal artery embolisation. Skeletal intervention includes bone biopsy vertebroplasty and intervertebral discogram.
