Diagnostic facilities

PACS
Picture Archive Communication System is an advanced imaging and information system that provides clinicians with on-demand access to patient images on computer workstations, at the hospital, offices and even at their homes, via a secure web connection. This technology helps reduce the time needed to develop diagnoses, plan patient treatments and improve patient care.
MRI
The Achieva, Phillips 1.5 Tesla closed high-field MRI creates clear, concise images of almost any part of the body, at any angle, without X-Rays. These precise images can lead to early detection and treatment of disease, especially brain and nervous system disorders, cancer, musculoskeletal problems and vascular disease.
CT
The department is equipped with most advanced 256 slice multidetector CT scanner (Philips, Brilliance iCT) capable of providing very high quality images in a very short period of time with less radiation dose technique especially required for cerebral , pulmonary, upper and lower limb ,Cardiac and coronary CT angiography examination and pediatric imaging apart from routine CT studies.
Ultrasound
We use both traditional and 4D ultrasound technology with Color Doppler facility to study the arteries and veins especially in the neck and extremities.
Digital Mammography
Full-field digital mammography system designed to provide physicians with clear and precise all-digital images rather than X-Ray film. The system offers better visibility of the breast, particularly near the skin line, the chest wall, and in women with dense breast tissue. Examination time is reduced by half of the traditional film-based mammograms.
Bone Densitometry
An advanced, fully digitalized tool to investigate patients with suspected osteoporosis (fragile bones).
