Various diagnostic radiological modalities including:
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): Two 1.5 Tesla MRI
- Computed Tomography (CT): 64 and 160 slice CTs
- Digital X-rays including mobile unit
- Bone densitometer
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
MRI is a high-resolution imaging technique that gives detailed picture of different organs of the body including the brain, spinal cord, muscles, joints, bone marrow etc. It uses strong magnets, radio frequency waves (which is a harmless wave) and computers to generate high quality pictures of the body. We have two 1.5 Tesla MRI which helps us reduce patient waiting times.
CT is another high-resolution imaging technique for assessing different structure of the human body including bones, brain, chest, abdomen etc. It uses x-rays and computer to generate 2D and 3D pictures of various human body parts. We have two CT; 64 slice and 160 slice. The 160 slice helps in imaging fast moving structure like the heart. It helps to provide detailed pictures of the blood vessels.
Fluoroscopy is very useful in getting motion picture-like images of body structures. It helps us look at the bowel using special dyes. It is also useful in looking at urinary system for blockages. In women with infertility, it also assists in looking at the uterus and fallopian tubes to assess for any structural or obstructive problems.
Various disease conditions and ageing leads to weakening of our bones. Bone densitometer is used for assessing the quality of bone which helps to guide effective treatment.
Our hospital is well-equipped with the diagnostic tool needed for imaging the breast. Our digital X-ray mammography machine is well suited for both screening and diagnosis of breast conditions. We also have compatible MRI coils used for high-resolution MRI breast imaging as well as high frequency ultrasound probes for breast ultrasound. These three modalities give comprehensive breast examination.
