Modern technologies

Some of the cutting-edge technologies available under this department include:

Our Latest Diagnostic Services:

Computed tomography- To provide scanned images of internal organs, blood vessels, and soft tissues.

Nuclear imaging- To provide images of the internal body system by detecting the radiations passed by the radioactive tracers present in different parts of the body to be visualized.

Holter test and Electrocardiography (ECG)- To check the electrical activity of the heart and its rhythm).

Ultrasound and Venous Doppler- To make use of ultrasound waves and produce the images inside of the body. Venous Doppler is specialized in creating images of blood vessels to get insight into the blood flow.

Echocardiography- To produce real-time pictures of the heart using sound waves.

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)- To make a detailed study of the entire body system using a magnetic field and radio waves generated by computers.

Video bronchoscopy- To assess lung problems and reason for breathing difficulties.

Bronchoalveolar Lavage- To take lung sample for testing.

Electroencephalogram - To measure brain activity.
