“Looking inside we will find darker images to find the solution”
Our service includes general radiology, covering imaging such as x-ray, and cardiothoracic radiology which deals with scans and images of the chest and heart. We also have a children’s radiology department, seeing children up to 14 years old.
Our medical services include radiology for diagnosing ailments and treating the same. Radiology department equipment is equipped with X-Ray Machine Bravo X115 & XR 6000 and GE Model 7843. This department has CT Scan and USG Sonology and state of the art MRI which is under process to scan the human body. We have qualified radiologists to work as per the timetable. We provide radiology services-24×7 and conduct diagnostic procedures on all patients. We provide a number of radiology services for women, children and elders. We follow stringent protocols to minimize any unnecessary radiation risk to any patients.

This includes x-rays, CT (computed tomography or CAT), Ultrasound, MRI and procedures such as fluoroscopy, biopsy and drainage of fluid or abscess collections. The radiology subspecialty devoted to the imaging, diagnosis and treatment of patients utilizing minimally invasive interventional techniques.
Radiologist assistants are experienced, registered radiographers who have obtained additional education and certification that qualifies them to serve as radiology extenders. They work under the supervision of a radiologist to provide patient care in the diagnostic imaging environment. Specifically, an RA takes a leading role in patient management and assessment. In addition, an RA performs selected radiology examinations and procedures under the supervision of a radiologist. The RA also may be responsible for evaluating image quality, making initial image observations and forwarding those observations to the supervising radiologist. Although RAs can perform functions beyond those of a radiologic technologist, the position holds certain limitations. An RA may make initial observations of images, but may not draft an official written interpretation.
Radiologic technologists perform diagnostic imaging examinations and perform radiation therapy treatments. Radiologic technologists who perform medical imaging examinations work closely with radiologists and are responsible for accurately positioning patients and ensuring that a quality diagnostic image is produced. Radiologic technologists work directly with patients and are responsible for explaining procedures, positioning patients on the examining table and adjusting immobilization devices to obtain optimum views of specific body areas. The technologist moves the imaging equipment into position and adjusts equipment controls based on his or her knowledge of the procedure. The technologist also is responsible for using radiation safety techniques to ensure exposures for team members and patients meet ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) standards. To prevent unnecessary radiation exposure, a technologist uses radiation protective devices like lead aprons and shields.
In addition, the technologist sets the appropriate collimation to minimize scatter radiation. Collimation is the process of adjusting the x-ray beam to the anatomic area appropriate for the procedure. The technologist also may operate mobile x-ray or ultrasound equipment to obtain images in the emergency room, operating room or at the patient’s bedside. Technologists also assist radiologists with general radiology, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound procedures. Radiologic technologists also work on the radiation oncology team.
Radiation therapists administer targeted doses of radiation to the patient’s body to treat cancer or other diseases. Radiation therapists are highly skilled medical specialists educated in physics, radiation safety, patient anatomy and patient care.
Radiation can have potentially harmful side effects, however medical experts believe the risks from being exposed to a small amount of radiation is far outweighed by the benefits of obtaining a correct diagnosis and being able to precisely target treatment and procedures.
