In Radiology all forms of diagnostic and interventional radiological procedures including sophisticated vascular and neuro interventional procedures are performed such as

  • Body Imaging (conventional x-ray, mammography, ultrasound, MRI and CT)
  • Interventional Radiology (biopsy, minimally invasive therapy, angiography)
  • Neuroradiology (CT and MRI studies of the neurologic system)
  • Nuclear Medicine (SPECT, PET/CT, radionuclide imaging)

Currently, Radiology and Imaging Sciences are operating with

3 Tesla MRI equipment :

Neuro-Imaging ; High end neuro-imaging packages such as Diffusion, Perfusion Scan, Spectroscopy ( CSI & SVS) white matter fibre tracking functional MRI. MR Venogram, MR Angiogram.

64 Slice CT scan

  • For Coronary Angiogram
  • Peripheral Angiogram
  • Abdominal, Neck Angiogram, Renal Angiogram
  • Volumetric liver study for pre and post liver transplant patients.
  • Triple phase liver scans for early detection of liver lesion.
  • Dedicated pancreatic protocol.
  • Cochlear transplant protocol.
  • 3 -D reconstruction.
  • Virtual Bronchoscopy and Colonoscopy.

Digital Mammography with stereotactic Platform : for stereotactic Biopsies, Stereotactic 'J' wire localization of micro-calcification. Digital Mammography is the latest advancement in X-ray Mammography. Digital mammography uses essentially the same mammography system as conventional mammography, but the system is equipped with a digital receptor and a computer instead of film cassette.

4- D ultrasounds : 

Four-dimensional (4D) ultrasound is 3D ultrasound in motion. Doppler ultra sound is a special ultrasound technique that evaluates blood as it flows through a blood vessel, including the body's major arteries and veins in abdomen, arms, legs and neck. Doppler ultrasound images help the physician to see and evaluate:

  • Blockages in blood flow ( such as clots)
  • Narrowing of vessels ( which may be caused by plaque)
  • Tumors and congenital malformations.
