Radiologists are the behind-the-scenes force harnessing the power of advanced imaging to help shape healthcare decisions that profoundly affect medical treatment. Advances in imaging technology enable the early detection of disease that can lead to improved treatment options and outcomes. We at Vydehi Hospital are dedicated to the safe and efficient use of advanced imaging to help improve the health of the patients we serve. The range of facilities, with latest state-of-the-art equipment in radiology and imaging, extends from X-ray to MRI and includes 0.2 Tesla MR, 1 to 16 slice MDCT, Ultrasound with Color Doppler and guided interventions computerized radiology and Mammography. The centre provides prompt services to the Vydehi Oncology Institute.
General Radiology and Fluoroscopy uses X-ray technology to diagnose disease and injury inside the body. X-ray is used for chest and abdomen exams, bone studies, and intravenous pyelograms (IVP). A specialized x-ray machine called a fluoroscope is used to conduct esophograms, upper GI series, barium enemas, cystograms, and hysterosalpingograms. All routine plain X-rays and special procedures, including barium studies, intravenous urography. HSG, MCU ect, are conducted using fuji CR system.
Ultrasound (or Sonography) uses high-frequency sound waves to create an image. This technique does not involve ionizing radiation. Since images are obtained real time, our radiologists are able to observe motion and consequently assess function as well as anatomy. Common examinations include evaluation of blood vessels, gallbladder, kidneys, liver, spleen, pancreas, uterus and ovaries, urinary bladder, thyroid, fetus, musculoskeletal structures, and heart.
A duplex ultrasound is a test to see how blood moves through your arteries and veins. The test combines traditional ultrasound with Doppler ultrasonography . Regular ultrasound uses sound waves that bounce of blood vessels to create pictures. Doppler looks at how sound waves reflect off moving objects, such as blood. There are different types of duplex ultrasound exams.
