Radiology and Imaging

Department Overview


Department of Radiology and imaging use the most advanced imaging modalities to deliver fast and accurate diagnostic solutions.

We use the first 3 Tesla MRI in Malabar region, High speed 128 slice CT scan. Advanced ultrasound machine with elastography and filmless radiology. We also have an integrated network PACS system which allows clinicians to view images immediately after the procedure.

Facilities

We do all MR imaging studies including MR spectroscopy, MR angiography, MR Venography, MR perfusion studies, MR neurography and cardiac MRI.

CT coronary angiogram, Aortography and peripheral angiography. CT guided interventional procedures.

Ultrasound guided interventional procedures. Ultrasound elastography

s Our department shows its commitment in protecting the environment by using filmless radiography and paperless reporting.

TREATMENTS AND SERVICES

  • 3 Tesla MRI (MAGNATOM- Skyra)

    Our MRI is one of the most advanced equipment available and it provides superior quality images in a very short time thus making it more comfortable for the patient. The machine has a wide bore, which reduces the claustrophobia and produces minimal noise. It also helps in early stroke detection as well as in cardiac imaging, cerebral and peripheral angiographies. Other facilities include MR spectroscopy, tractography, gastrointestinal imaging, hepatobiliary and Genito-Urinary imaging. The High field strength of our MRI also enhances the musculoskeletal imaging.

  • CT Scan (SOMATOM – Perspective 128 slice)

    The CT SCAN with its advanced software is capable of Ultra-Fast scanning with a low radiation exposure, which is required for cardiac imaging, CT coronary angiography, cerebral and peripheral angiographies. This machine uses dual energy and with the special software available, produces less artefacts due to metallic implants.

  • PACS

    We are equipped with PACS which is a hospital wide picture archiving and communicating system for fast delivery of reports and images, that too, without use of paper.

  • Ultrasound Machines (Siemens)

    Acuson 2000 and NX 3 with elastography, 3D and 4D imaging.

  • Digital Radiography

    Filmless with faster work flow.

    Color Doppler.

    Portable USG and X-Rays.

  • Other Facilities

    Interventional radiology

    Equipped with high end cath labs, Artis Zeego and Artis Zee

    Image guided interventional procedures

    Barium studies, IVU, RGU
