Radiology

Overview

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.

Services

Computerized Radiography

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 Swallow
  • Barium Meal
  • Barium Meal Follow Through 3)Barium Enema
  • Gastrographin Studies
  • Loopogram

Computed Tomography Scan (CT)

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.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)

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).
