The Department offers comprehensive services in all the fields of Radiodiagnosis. A full range of diagnostic and interventional procedures on state-of-the-art equipment are performed by an experienced team of Radiologists and is the main strength of this department.
procedures are performed on two 1000 mA X-ray systems with Image Intensifier TV control for special procedures and a ceiling mounted tube for all trauma patients. These units are supported by a fully automated dark room for instant viewing of films. This is especially helpful in monitoring of special procedures like Barium studies and Intra Venous Pyelograms. Film quality standards are uniformly high and closely monitored by senior faculty members.
There are two Color Doppler Ultrasound
Units, which cover the complete spectrum of investigations. The Logic 700 from GE Medical systems is the most advanced Color Doppler system available today. Its excellent color Doppler and tissue harmonics permit all examinations with very high quality images. One US system is dedicated to portable examinations in the wards and ICU for patients who are difficult to transport. The US units are linked to a Dry imager for instant filming. A new 3D/4D Ultrasound Machine Voluson 730 expert has been added to the department. For three dimensional images and real time 4D evaluation with facility for real time 4D evaluation with facility for real time 4D Biopsies.64 Slice CT Scanner
Light Speed VCT from GE Medical Systems has been installed for Coronary Artery Angiography. It can complete a cardiac study including an angiogram in just five heart beats. It is ideally suited for evaluation of a typical chest pain. A single examination can eliminate or detect abnormality in coronary artery, pulmonary embolism or aortic dissection. Other clinical applications include angiograms of the Renal, Mesenteric and Neck Vessels. It has a major role in diagnosing congenital heart diseases within seconds by simple I.V. injection. Aortic dissections and aneurysm can be diagnosed within seconds.
The Scanner is designed for quick evaluation of trauma patients as a whole body scan can be completed in just 10 seconds.
This department is a referral centre for the investigation of a wide variety of chest disease especially CT guided interventional and biopsy procedures. The high-resolution images of the lungs are rated as the very best. A 1.5 Tesla MRI scanner
with 33 mT gradients offers a complete spectrum of advanced applications, which includes 3D TOF sequences for angiograms of the intracranial and neck vessels. Contrast enhanced MRA of the Aorta and renal vessels. Bolus chase angiograms of the peripheral vessels of the lower limbs.
Interactive imaging or MR fluoroscopy is a remarkable new feature on this system which permits real time imaging of the targeted area. Other recent advances are Diffusion and Perfusion imaging both SSFSE is a unique sequence for MRCP and produces exceptional quality images of the biliary tree and lends valuable support to ERCP.
unit is dedicated to screening of Breast Cancer and follow up of those already under treatment and at high risk.Interventional Radiology
is a specially strong area of this Dept. with all types of drainage and biopsy procedures performed under Fluoroscopic, US or CT guidance. The Dept. specializes in obtaining CT guided biopsies from most difficult sites normally not undertaken at other institutions.
The systems listed are stretched to the limit of their capabilities by highly experienced and dedicated team of consultants and residents providing routine and round the clock emergency services.
