The Centre is equipped with 500MA Siemens X-Ray machine supported by Fuji Digital CR system
What is Digital X-Ray?
An X-ray examination is a painless way for clinicians to diagnose and monitor many health conditions. X-rays are a type of radiation called electromagnetic waves and it produces images of bones and certain tissues within the body.
In this, digital X-ray sensors are used for imaging instead of traditional photography film.
Advantage of Digital X-Ray
The advantages of capturing and storing X-Ray Images digitally rather than on film are overwhelming. Digital x-ray imaging has many advantages:
- The images can be stored in a very compact manner without risk of loss or deterioration in quality.
- The images can be easily enlarged and “suspicious” areas of an image can be more easily studied.
- The images can be easily retrieved, and can be transmitted electronically to an expert or to another medical practitioner in the same hospital or to an insurance company for reimbursement purposes.
- Enhanced images
- No radiation used to produce an image
- Time efficiency
- Immediate availability of the image to preview
Special X-ray Investigations:
Almost all special x-ray investigations are done in the centre such as IVU (Intra-venous urography), Barium swallow, Barium meal upper GIT, Double and single contrast barium enema, HSG ( Hystero-salpingography), OCG, Sinogram etc are done in the centre. Charges for special investigations include the standard cost of non-ionic contrast unlike other centres which charge it separately or ask you to bring the contrast.
