Department of Radiology and imaging services at CHRC is a full service, academic imaging department that performs over one lakh screening, diagnostic and interventional procedures annually. The goal of the department is to provide every patient with timely access to the most sophisticated medical imaging technology in a compassionate setting and to quickly deliver accurate medical reports to referring physicians and surgeons. The Department is equipped with state of the art world-class x-ray machines, ultra-sonography machines with dedicated probes for ARFI, small joint sonography and intraoperative sonography, DEXA scan, RFA machine, 128 slice CT scan, 1.5 T MRI and PET CT scanner which are integrated with PACS to view anywhere and at any time.
Computerized radiology is the branch of radiology that uses ionizing radiation (x-rays) to visualize the bones and organs in order to provide medical information needed to diagnose a problem.
X-ray of all the parts of the body
Barium Studies (single and double-contrast)
Barium Meal Follow Through
Intravenous Pyelography (IVP)
Ascending Urethrography (AGU)/Retrograde Urethrography (RGU)
Micturating Cystourethrogram (MCU)
T Tube Cholangiography
Ultrasonography is a diagnostic medical procedure that uses sound waves to produce images on a screen, which allows medical providers to view internal structures of the body. It is not harmful to the body and fetus.
Early Anomaly Scan
Fetal Echo Scan
Musculoskeletal Sonography of Muscles and Joints
Small Joint's Sonography by Special high-frequency hockey stick probe
Breast Sonography with elastography
Acoustic Radiation Force Impulse (ARFI) for liver and spleen
Trans-rectal Prostate Sonography
Arteriovenous (Fistula) Doppler
Porto venous Doppler
Transplant Graft Doppler - Renal and Liver
US-guided RFA, FNAC, Biopsy, Drainage procedures
Computed Tomography Scan uses ionizing radiation (x-rays) and computer processing to produce three-dimensional imaging of the body. The patient may need contrast dye to improve the computed image. The patient may need to avoid eating or drinking for 4 to 6 hours before the test. We use 128 slices Siemens machine with the fastest wide gantry.
CT Coronary Angiography
CT Dental Scan - to know 3 Dimensional details of individual tooth
CT Coronary Calcium Scoring
CT guided RFA, FNAC, Biopsy, Drainage procedures
Magnetic Resonance Imaging uses a magnetic field, radio-frequency impulse and a computer to produce detailed images of body structures in multiple dimensions. We have a 3 T, wide-bore MRI machine with silent scan features (no noise gantry).
Sleep Apnoea Study
Cochlear Implant Study
Perianal and Rectovaginal Fistula Study
MRI Studies of
Liver and Cardiac Iron Quantification
Liver Fat Quantification
Pediatric imaging with or without sedation
Magnetic Resonance Cholangiopancreatography (MRCP)
Triple Phase and Multi-Phase MRI for liver
MR Contrast Angiography
MR Non- Contrast Angiography
Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry scan is a special type of x-ray that measures bone mineral density, whole-body muscle mass to give an outlook of bone strength.
Whole Body DEXA Scan
Regional DEXA Scan
Interventional radiology is a new sub-specialty of radiology providing minimally invasive image-guided treatment of many diseases.
Fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAC)
Inferior Vena Cava Filter
Percutaneous biliary drainage(PTBD)
PTBD with Internalisation
Trans-jugular Intra-hepatic Portosystemic Shunt (TIPS)
Direct intra-hepatic portocaval shunt (DIPS)

Venous Thrombolysis for DVT
Uterine Artery Embolisation
Bronchial Artery Embolisation
Renal Artery Stenting
Peripheral angiography and angioplasty
Radio-Frequency Ablation of varicose veins
The term molecular imaging can be broadly defined as the in vivo characterization and measurement of biologic processes at the cellular and molecular level.
Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and Computed Tomography (CT) Scan
