Radiology is a crucial medical specialty that utilizes advanced imaging technologies to aid in the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of various ailments and conditions. At SIDS Hospital, our Radiology Department plays a vital role in providing comprehensive and accurate imaging services to support patient care.
The Radiology Department is an integral part of a hospital as it offers essential diagnostic and interventional services. Our team of skilled radiologists and technologists work closely with other healthcare professionals to provide timely and accurate imaging results, enabling precise diagnoses and effective treatment planning.
At SIDS Hospital, we use a wide range of imaging modalities to cater to diverse patient needs such as:
- X-ray: X-ray imaging is a commonly used technique that produces images of bones, organs, and tissues. It helps in the diagnosis of fractures, lung infections, digestive disorders, and many other conditions.
- Computed Tomography (CT): CT scans utilize advanced X-ray technology to produce detailed cross-sectional images of the body. It aids in the diagnosis of various conditions, including cancers, cardiovascular diseases, brain disorders, and traumatic injuries.
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): MRI uses a powerful magnetic field and radio waves to generate detailed images of organs and soft tissues. It is particularly useful in assessing brain and spinal cord abnormalities, joint injuries, abdominal conditions, and tumours.
- Ultrasound: Ultrasound imaging uses high-frequency sound waves to produce real-time images of the body’s structures. It is commonly used for examining organs such as the heart, liver, kidneys, and reproductive system. It is also invaluable during pregnancy for monitoring foetal development.
The Radiology Department at SIDS Hospital plays a critical role in the diagnosis and treatment of various ailments and conditions. Our imaging services aid in the detection and characterization of diseases, enabling early intervention and improved patient outcomes.
Radiological imaging is vital in diagnosing and monitoring a wide range of conditions, including:
– Cancers: Radiology helps in the early detection and staging of cancers, guiding treatment decisions and monitoring response to therapy.
– Traumatic Injuries: Imaging techniques such as X-ray, CT, and MRI assist in identifying fractures, dislocations, internal injuries, and brain trauma.
– Neurological Disorders: Advanced imaging techniques help in the diagnosis and management of brain tumours, stroke, multiple sclerosis, and other neurological conditions.
– Musculoskeletal Disorders: Radiology aids in evaluating joint diseases, bone fractures, arthritis, and spinal conditions, helping in treatment planning and monitoring.
– Abdominal Conditions: Imaging techniques provide valuable information on conditions affecting the abdomen, including liver diseases, gastrointestinal disorders, and kidney abnormalities.
Our Radiology Department also plays a crucial role in minimally invasive procedures, known as interventional radiology. These procedures utilize imaging guidance for biopsies, drainages, tumour ablations, and the placement of stents and catheters, reducing the need for more invasive surgical interventions.
