Technical advent and advancement in the technology has changed the position of Radiology tremendously . The so called “shadow chasers” of the yesteryears are one of the most indispensable people in patient management today. In last couple of decades radiology has grown by leaps and bounds with ever growing new technological innovations that have completely transformed the position of Radiology in such a way that it has become the most desired residency program across the world.
Today, the department is equipped with high end CT and MRI machines along with one of the best Sonology and Radiography equipment. Besides the patient services, best efforts have been continuing for the post graduate education and research work which is evidenced by the well groomed residents as well as the research publications from the department.
The department is ISO 9001-2001 certified and offers a wide array of radiological services encompassing both diagnostic as well as interventional aspects.
The department is equipped with Digital Radiography systems which include both Direct as well as Computed Radiography. Portable radiography machines are being routinely used for sick patients with portable C- Arm being used in Operation Theatres. The radiographic services being offered include
Computed Tomography :
Equipped with a 128 slice CT scanner which has made rapid and precise imaging possible.
Advanced applications which include 3D volume rendered and multiplanar imaging have made it possible to give the treating clinician an exact depiction of disease process .
MRI :Equipped with one of the world ‘s best Siemen’s Avanto 1.5 Tesla MRI scanner the department offers the best and most of the advanced MR imaging.
Diagnostic Neuroradiology (Including spectroscopy , perfusion imaging , volumetry and flowmetry).
MRI abdomen and Pelvis : Dedicated organ imaging with use of advanced sequences in disease detection and staging
Musculoskeletal Imaging: Extremity imaging with dedicated applications like MR arthroscopy and Cartilage imaging
Interventional Procedures: Therapeutic and diagnostic procedures under imaging guidance are a routine in department.
Non vascular Procedures:
Postgraduate teaching , interdepartmental and follow up meets are a part of departmental curriculum. The residents and faculty are guided and encouraged to pursue their research interests. The department has been responsible for laying a strong foundation stone for the resident radiologists over past twentyfive years .
B Sc Radiography course has been instituted from the year 2012.
Integrated PACS with Hospital Information system
Radiofrequency ablators for tumour therapy
High end sonography equipment with Elastography and 4D imaging
Robotic arm for CT guided procedures to improve precision
