Diagnostic Imaging Services

General Radiography

A basic radiological imaging procedure on body parts upon clinician request


Mammography

Mammography is the process of using low-energy-X-rays (usually around 30 kVp) to examine the human breast and is used as a diagnostic and a screening tool.

The goal of mammography is the

  • Early detection of breast cancer
  • Typically through detection of characteristic masses
  • Detection of microcalcifications


Ultrasonography

A technique of using ultrasound modality to produce images within the body to diagnose and high frequency of sound wave is use instead of radiation.

Utrasound Examination

Ultrasound images help in the diagnosis of a wide range of diseases and conditions, including stomach problems. During an ultrasound test, high-frequency sound waves, inaudible to the human ear, are transmitted through body tissues using an instrument called a transducer, which transmits the information to a computer that displays the information on a monitor.

It is used to create images of soft tissue structures, such as the gallbladder, liver, heart, kidneys, pancreas, bladder, thyroid gland, prostate, female reproductive organs, and even of babies in the uterus.

Ultrasound can also measure the flow of blood in the arteries to detect blockages.

Types of ultrasound examination:

  • Abdomen
  • Pelvic region
  • Liver, gall bladder and pancreas
  • Thyroid
  • Breast

MRI

Also known as magnetic resonance imaging, is a pain-free non-invasive test used to produce two dimensional images of body structures by using intense magnetic fields on to patient body.

Common MRI investigation
  • Brain - Lesion , bleed or looking for early detection of infarct
  • Extremities and joints
  • Spines and spinal cord
  • MR angio

How to get our service

Request for x-ray examination must be referred by consultants and general practitioner via
  • Request form
  • Appointment via phone (need referral letter upon arrival)
  • On line request (available within hospital premises)
  • Memmo instruction by authorized qualified medical personnel.

CT Scanning

Computed tomography or CT scan (previously known as CAT scan, the "A" standing for "axial") uses a high amount of ionizing radiation (in the form of X-rays) in conjunction with a computer to create images of both soft and hard tissues.

These images look as though the patient was sliced like bread (thus, "tomography" - "tomo" means "slice"). The machine looks similar to an MRI machine, but is not related.

The exams are generally short, most lasting only as long as a breath-hold.

A CT scan can be used to study all parts of your body, such as the brain,chest, abdomen, pelvis, or an arm or leg. It can take pictures of body organs, such as the liver,pancreas, intestines, kidneys, bladder, adrenal glands, lungs, and heart. It also can study blood vessels, bones, and the spinal cord.

It combines many x-ray images with the aid of a computer to generate cross-sectional views and, if needed, three-dimensional images of the internal organs and structures of the body. A CT scan is used to define normal and abnormal structures in the body with high resolution images.

Our advanced facility

64 Multislices CT ( MDCT):
What is an advantages of 64 multi slice CT or (64MDCT)

What you need to do for CT examination.

  • Patient must be in the department 15 minute earlier.
  • Patient with medication must inform the radiographer on duty.
  • Radio opaque should be removed.

Fluoroscopy

An Imaging procedure for dynamic study which specialization examination area examined by doctors.

Fluorocopy (Special Examination)

Special examination is an imaging procedure involving difference of positive contrast (Barium sulphate solvent or organic iodine suspension). The contrast media is given to the patient through tube, injection or oral.

Types of examination & the contrast used

Dissolved Barium sulphate

  • Barium swallow
  • Barium meal
  • Barium enema

Urinary System

Organic iodine suspension

  • IVU (Intravenous Urogram)
  • MCU (Mict. CystoUrethrogram)

Nerve System

Myelogram - organic Iodnie Suspension

Vascular System

Venogram Arteriogram

  • Organic Iodine suspension

Others

  • HSG (Hysterosalphingogram)
  • T-Tube
  • Sialogram
  • Sinogram

(Please inform the nurse or radiographer if you are allergic to any drugs before examination on during the booking of appointment).
