RADIOLOGY

Diagnostic Radiology at Deenanath Mangeshkar hospitals offers all radiology related services under one roof. The radiology department is well supported by excellent and highly qualified doctors with technology at its best.

Technology

Nuclear Imaging

  • Single photon emission computerized tomography (SPECT) technology used in Nuclear medicine.
  • State of art facility for nuclear imaging with PET CT and Gamma Camera.
    Salient Features (PET CT & Gamma Camera)
  • Separable PET and CT gantries for imaging flexibility which allows greater patient access for IV lines and interventional procedures
  • 70 cm bore for oncology applications Perform comprehensive diagnostic and radiation therapy planning studies
  • GEMINI GXL delivers best-in-class count rate performance as measured by clinical NECR count rates, allowing exceptional image quality with 15-minute whole-body PET/CT scans
  • New GSO crystal configurability improves detection efficiency and system sensitivity
  • Excellent PET/CT image quality and data registration with less than 15-minute PET whole body scan time and minimum injected dose
  • Automatic body contouring minimises detector-to-patient distance for optimal SPECT imaging resolution.
  • Infra-red sensors automatically maintain the optimum distance from the detector to the patient.
  • Reduced scan set-up time and real-time contouring further help increase efficiency

CT Scan

  • State of Art Seimens Sensation 64 Slice CT SCAN
  • Head to toe scan in 20 Seconds – ideal for trauma patients and for metastatic screening
  • Excellent high resolution coronal and sagittal reconstructions
  • High quality 3D imaging
  • 3D , 4D reconstructed scans
  • Portable CT scan – Ceretom available

Following procedures done with high quality resolution:-

  • Virtual endoscopy
  • Dental scan
  • Cardiac CT for Coronary angiography
  • Whole body , Cerebral , Carotid , Pulmonary , Abdominal and Peripheral Angiographies
  • Stereo tactic biopsies / FNAC and other CT guided interventional procedures (Eg : Drainage, Pigtail insertion, RFA etc)

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

  • State of art Seimens 1.5 Tesla MAGNETOM MRI Scan,/
  • Total imaging Matrix technology
  • i PAT for faster imaging with high resolution

Following procedures done with high quality imaging :-

  • Stroke Screening
  • Whole Spine Imaging with screening
  • Whole body screening for metastasis
  • Perfusion study for diagnosis of brain tissue at risk in cerebral stoke / Tumor perfusion for grading cancer
  • MRI Spectroscopy
  • MRCP – Non invasive without any contrast agent, study of biliary tree
  • Musculoskeletal Imaging
  • Gynaecological Imaging
  • Breast coil – Breast Imaging
  • MRI Prostate

Ultrasonography & Color Doppler

  • High End Sonography & colour doppler Machines (Toshiba & Philips)
  • Mobile USG units for ICU Patients
  • Multifrequency dedicated Transducers and also Bipolar Transrectal transducer.

Following procedures done :-

  • Routine USG of abdomen / Pelvis , Obstetrics , KUB etc
  • Opthalmic , Scrotal , Thyroid & other small part USG
  • Musculoskeletal USG
  • Upper and lower arterial and venous dopplers , Renal & Abdominal dopplers
  • Obstetrics procedures like Amniocentesis & other fetal interventions.
  • USG guided aspirations
  • Fetal 2 D Echo studies
  • USG guided procedures :- Aspirations , FNAC , Biopsies
  • Endoscopic ultrasound :- for better evaluation of the mediastinal biliary, pancreatic and retroperitoneal masses.

Mammography

  • High end mammography machine by seimens- Mammotom 3000 Nova
  • High resolution images – finner and minute details can be visualised
  • Comprehensive diagnosis with help of USG & MRI

Indications:-

  • Screening mammography for early detection of breast malignancies
  • Diagnostic mammography with special views for discharge lumps
  • Mammographic localisation of non palpable lesions for biopsies

DR System

This unique system where an x-ray taken on normal x-ray machine is converted to a digital image and can be viewed on monitor and then images can be printed later in different formats.

Advantage of this system isimage production in ultra short time along with drastic improvement in image quality being a digital image, ability to adjust image parameters to view areas of interest in a better fashion, ability to zoom areas of interest all this in effort to give a good quality diagnostic image.

We also can transfer these images to view stations in ICU, NICU, OT etc. to facilitate quick viewing for physicians in those areas. These images can also be stored for later viewing and comparison

Bone Mineral Densitometry (BMD)

  • Assessment of Bone Mineral density in bones for early diagnosis of Osteopororsis / Osteopenia , can be done on the machine.
  • Prodigy Advance GE Machine available for BMD scan
  • The total body examination, the ultimate in skeletal assessment, provides bone density and body composition(total fat, lean and bone) in one scan
  • BMD and soft-tissue assessment provide valuable clinical information in children with growth disorders, metabolic diseases, and cachexic disorders.
