Radiology

OVERVIEW

Department of Radiology and imaging services at CHRC is a full services, 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 intra-operative 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 anytime.

    • T Tube Cholangiography 

    • Fistulogram 

    • Sinogram 

  • Ultrasonography

  • 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 foetus.
