An X-ray is a test that uses radiation to picture the structures like the chest, lungs, the
heart, bones and abdomen. A beam of radiation is used which helps to develop a black and
white picture. X-ray is an excellent screening test for lungs and bone diseases. X-ray
helps to spot the various abnormalities and in some treatment aspects.
X-rays are commonly used for
In these procedures x-ray resistant barium solution or contrast is given through specified
route and images are taken.
Procedures are like
Ultrasound machines use technology of sound to give real time pictures. Inaudible Sound
waves are passed through the body and the echoes are converted into images or video. It is
used to examine liver, pancreas,spleen, gall bladder, uterus kidneys , their shape, size
and position. The bladder may be assessed to know the reason for unexplained blood in the
urine or to search for a kidney or bladder stone.
Ultrasound is routinely used in
Doppler is a part and one of the functions of ultrasound machine only. Even this technology
uses ultrasound waves to give pictures of blood vessels. Vessels are seen as colourfull
blue and red tubes.
It is used in
CT (Computed tomography) has become a routine and essential basic diagnostic tool. CT scan
machine uses x-rays to image the entire body and give pictures of all organs like brain,
lungs, liver, kidneys, blood vessels, pelvis and limbs. In some conditions CT is done after
contrast injection in the veins. It will give additional and reliable information regarding
the organs and diseases. It is also used to do biopsy and certain treatment procedures.
CT is commonly used for
CT Angiography is used to obtain 3D pictures of the blood vessels of the brain, chest, abdomen and limbs with the help of X-ray scanner and computed analysis. CT Angiography delivers your doctors with more exact pictures of your arteries veins in comparison to MRI or Doppler.
These machines are also used in certain treatment procedures or invasive diagnostic tests like
Diagnose first ! Treatment next …
Radiology and imaging is a branch of medicine that uses imaging technology such as X-Ray,
Ultrasound to diagnose and treat disease. Radiology is the basic and most essential department
of a hospital because treatment of any disease or problem is only possible after correct and
confirmatory diagnosis. Radiology is part of diagnosis, follow up and certain treatment
Our hospital is equipped with state of art diagnostic machines.
