The Diagnostics Department at Apollo Bramwell Hospital is fully equipped with the latest diagnostic equipment and skilled technicians. This includes: computerized tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), angiography, ultrasound investigations, x-ray and fluoroscopy, OPG dental x-ray, 64-slice dual head CT scan, 1.5 Tesla MRI, and mammography.
PACS technology, now used by most of the leading hospitals in the world, is an electronic and filmless information system for acquiring, sorting, transporting, storing and displaying all types of medical images including x-rays, MRI and endoscopy. With the introduction of hospital wide PACS, Apollo Bramwell Hospital proposes to deliver the highest standards of quality and care. PACS enables immediate transmission of images to doctors in critical areas thereby reducing delays in diagnosis.
EMR refers to electronically maintained online medical records which replace the heavy and cumbersome physical files of the past which were restricted in accessibility. EMR can be accessed at multiple locations by multiple users reducing errors in medication and delays in monitoring patients.
Our dual source CT scanner is an important advance in diagnostic cardiology, as the technology is twice as fast compared to other 64 slice CT machines and captures high resolution images of a beating heart in seconds without the need for heart slowing medications. For example, chest examinations now only require a scan time of 0.6 seconds.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging with Achieva 1.5T SE provides uncompromised quality in challenging applications like large field-of-view for abdominal and breast imaging, uniform fat suppression in all anatomies, and consistent off-center imaging, across patients of all heights and body weight.
Whole Body MRI is effective for evaluating the entire skeleton in patients with suspected bone metastasis (cancer that spread to the bone from other parts of the body) in a single imaging scan - and it only takes between 15 and 19 minutes. Besides its accuracy and quickness, the fact that it’s an MRI scan means it’s non-invasive and there is no radiation risk to the patient. Whole Body MRI can also detect metastases in other parts of the body besides the bones, such as in the brain, lung or liver.
With a full range of diagnostic imaging, we routinely perform a large number of interventional procedures – both diagnostic and therapeutic encompassing indications across specialties like pulmonology, oncology, gastroenterology,neurology, etc.
