Radiology

The Department of Radiology uses high-tech equipment to image the internal anatomy and help to diagnose and treat injury and illness. The images obtained are delivered over a high-speed network and stored in our patient’s personal digital file.

The imaging modalities are digitally archive and include X-rays, Ultrasound, Mammography, Bone Mineral Density Scans, Computed Tomography (CT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Our mammography machine deserves special note as it provides Full Field Digital Mammograms (FFDM) with Computer-assisted Cancer Detection, the only system of its kind locally. FFDM offer much higher accuracy over older digital mammograms while reducing radiation exposure to the patient by around 40%.

High-resolution ultrasound scanners perform normal scans of all body parts as well as complex blood flow imaging and CEUS (contrast enhanced ultrasound, a revolutionary new technology).

Digital mammograms are read by a radiologist and by specialized computer software to improve detection of any abnormalities.

A high-speed 64-Slice CT scanner performs 2D and 3D imaging of all body parts within seconds including the heart and brain blood flow.

A 1.5T MR scanner evaluates all body parts with exquisite detail.
