Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
Our 1.5 Tesla Siemens MAGNETOM AERA MRI system is among the most advanced equipment in the state
Capabilities include diffusion imaging for hyperacute stroke detection, proton spectroscopy for tumor evaluation, MRCP for non-invasive liver, gallbladder and pancreatic imaging, diffusion tensor imaging for fibre tracking, functional MRI studies for brain mapping and epilepsy localization, breast MRI and cardiac MRI, opening a new horizon in MR imaging in the state.
Ultrasonography and Color Doppler
We have 5 advanced ultrasound scanners with color doppler offering intricate studies of internal structures and blood vessels including carotids, peripheral vessels, abdominal and renal vessels. The possibility of elastography adds another edge.
GEVoluson E8 Ultrasound System
One of Our Best…
From superb 2D images to new 3D/4D imaging technologies, the department today offers the latest in ultrasound technology
Our CT Scanner,Siemens Somatom Spirit,is a spiral scanner which provides high resolution imaging
Commonly known as “CAT scans”, this technique takes multiple, “cross-sectional” images of the body, which can then be reconstructed and displayed as three-dimensional images by a computer.
X-Ray, Mammography& Special Procedures
With 4 computed radiographic systems we render round the clock X-Ray service in our hospital. We do screening as well as diagnostic mammography, thereby providing a unique women’s health solution. Conventional special radiographic procedures are also dealt with utmost care and passion.
