"Radiology is the science which deals with the use of radiant energy for the diagnosis and treatment of a disease. A minimally invasive form of medicare, it allows the doctor to study a patient's internal system, without making any cuts on the body".
Our team of radiologists and expert technologists provide the best service possible with the latest advances available within the field. We offer exceptional diagnostic and interventional radiology services in a patient-friendly environment. We have several advanced types of equipment and dedicated staff working for the diagnostic and therapeutic services. It is also equipped with 2 ultrasound machine Wipro GE P7 & Portable Versana Active, Digital X-Rays machines & Portable X-ray machines and Skanray Fluoroscopy with DSA.
Image quality plays an important root in of high-level diagnosis. Direct digital allows instant display of images, while the lack of artifacts and image loss allows radiologists to make quick and confident diagnoses. Patient X-ray doses are reduced, and retakes are eliminated."The time saved by the immediate availability and the image quality is reinvested into patient support."
The test is performed in radiology department by an X-Ray technologist. The positioning of the patient, X-ray machine, and film depends on the type of study and area of interest. Multiple individual views may be requested. Much like conventional photography, motion causes blurry images on radiographs, and thus, patients may be asked to hold their breath or not move during the brief exposure (about 1 second).
Prior to the examination, inform the health care provider if you are pregnant, may be pregnant, If abdominal studies are planned and you have had a barium contrast study (such as a barium enema, upper GI series, or barium swallow) in the last 4 days, the test may be delayed until the contrast has fully passed. You will came to remove all jewelery and wear a hospital gown during the X-ray examination because metal and certain clothing can obscure the images and require repeat studies.
4D ultrasound – volume-imaging produces a dynamic, real time look that virtually eliminates any questions about missed information. It sees things in ways we have never seen before with ultrasound. Finding the exact location of pathology and viewing it in relation to other anatomy. Listing you have all the information you need for definitive answers. As much as the machine the man behind the machine is also important. Together, our department has transformed patient care using ultrasound in brand new ways.
The ultrasound system is designed to keep pace with busy practices as high-volume practices require image quality and efficiency and conducts routine scanning to complex assessments. The department offers the latest in ultrasound technology with intervention ultrasound study for diagnosing liver diseases.
Advanced Color Doppler Ultrasound scanners studies of the carotids, peripheral vessels, abdominal and renal vessels. These scans of the body’s blood vessels are essential in investigations of patients with blood vessel related problems.
The Department of Interventional Radiology at Goalbert Diagnostics is a radiology that uses image-guided, minimally invasive techniques for both diagnosis and therapy. In other words, it is a medical procedure performed by Interventional radiologist using x-ray fluoroscopy or ultrasound.Interventional radiology, however, is both a diagnostic and therapeutic discipline, where operations are performed using the normal highway system of the body, the network of veins and arteries, through a puncture the size of a pinhole.
The purpose of using Interventional radiology is to diagnose and treat patients using the least invasive techniques to reduce the risk and improve the overall health of the patients. The range of Interventional radiology techniques is divided into two main types of procedures such as diagnostic and therapeutic.
Diagnostic procedures help to obtain precise anatomical images such as of a cancerous tumor or insert a radio-opaque dye for viewing inside of a hollow structure such as a vein, artery, or canal. It includes angiography, biopsy, and cholangiography.
Therapeutic procedure specifically direct treatments to an abnormality, such as stents, laser treatment or clotting agents.
Diagnostic interventional radiology:
The procedures of diagnostic IR include Angiography, Cholangiography, FNAC and Biopsy.
Therapeutic interventional radiology:
The procedures of Therapeutic IR include Balloon angioplasty, Endovascular aneurysm repair, Embolization, Thrombolysis, IVC filters, TIPS, Endovenous laser treatment, Catheter placement, Embolization and Percutaneous nephrostomy. The range of conditions which can be treated by Interventional radiology is vast and constantly expanding. While technology advances and the availability of high-quality imaging equipment grows, interventional radiology will bring a host of new treatment options to patients and referral specialists.
The benefits of Interventional radiology are:
