Diagnostic Imaging Services
Diagnostic imaging plays a critical role in the early and accurate diagnosis of various conditions in the field of Orthopaedic Surgery. 1. Radiology
- X-ray radiography remains the foundation of diagnostic imaging in the field of Orthopaedics. The age old problems of poor quality images, slow processing of films, storage space consumption and deterioration of films with time have been resolved with the introduction of digital radiography. Digital radiography, which is available in SPARSH Hospital, allows the acquisition of high resolution images that can be stored and viewed on a computer on and off-site. SPARSH Hospital has two- high quality, state-of-the-art digital radiography machines - Seimens MULTIPHOS-15 - with a Fuji FCRX CAPSULA processing machine which allows for high-speed and high resolution images. In addition, the hospital also possesses a Seimens portable radiography machine to provide imaging services for the in-patients especially in the critical care areas. 2. Ultrasonography –
The Ultrasonography suite is equipped with a Seimens - ACUSON X300PE system which is used to perform ultrasound examinations of the abdomen, Doppler studies and Echocardiogram. The Ultrasound machine is also used for interventional procedures including ultrasound guided nerve blocks.
3. CT Scan
– Computerised Tomography utilises X-rays directed from a 360º gantry to provide high resolution multi-planar images. The Wipro-GE computerised tomography machine, available in the Diagnostic Suite, is ideal for advanced orthopaedic, cranial and abdominal imaging. 4. MRI Scan
– Magnetic Resolution Imaging allows for high-resolution imaging of soft tissue structures (muscles, nerves, intervertebral discs) in the body. The MRI machine in the Narayana Health City campus provides high quality images and is backed by skilled professionals to provide interpretation and reporting services.
