The department consists of a team of highly trained and certified radiologist who are expertise in diagnosing various health conditions. The major goal of the department is to provide high- quality images and medical reports to the patients within a short span of time. The radiological services include;
- Computed Tomography (CT Scan)
- Dental X-ray
CT scan: Computed Tomography Imaging which is also known as CAT Scanning( Computerized Axial Tomography), provides a wide form of imaging called cross-sectioning imaging used for a variety of diagnostics and therapeutic purposes like detecting tumours and any other deformities in the body.
X-ray: X-ray is one of the simple and widely used non-invasive imaging technique which uses the electromagnetic energy to capture the image of the internal body parts. It is basically done to detect the cracks or fractures on the bone. X-rays are also used to spot pneumonia, kidney stone, gallstones, bowel obstruction etc.
Mammography: Mammography is a non-invasive imaging technique which uses low-dose x-rays to examine human breast that helps in the early detection of breast cancer. It is a diagnostic and also a screening tool. The main purpose this is to evaluate a woman who has the symptoms of breast cancer.
Ultrasound: Ultrasound, which is also known as Sonography uses non-invasive high-frequency sound waves to capture the live movements of the internal organs. It is mainly used in the field of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. It can provide a view of the bladder, brain (in infants), eyes, gall bladder, kidneys, liver, ovaries, pancreases, spleen, thyroid, testicles, uterus and blood vessels.
Fluoroscopy: Fluoroscopy is an imaging technique to obtain real-time still images and motion of the internal organ system including skeletal, urinary, respiratory, digestive and reproductive systems using X-rays. They are used to position orthopedics implants during the surgery, catheters, pacemakers and movement of contrast agents.
Dental X-ray: The Intraoral x-rays is a common test done in Dentistry to capture the image of the teeth, bones and soft tissues in the mouth to find the problem within the mouth and teeth, like cavities, hidden dental structure, status of developing tooth, bone loss and to diagnose periodontal disease.
