DEPARTMENT OF RADIOLOGY AND IMAGING BHARATHIRAJAA SEPCIALITY HOSPITAL

ABOUT US : IMAGING PROCEDURES RADIOLOGISITS
The department of Radiology and Imaging is the heart of the hospital. It has the latest most advanced equipments capable of handling most of the imaging needs of the Hospital.

The department is equipped with the following imaging modalities.

1. 1.5 T HIGH DEFINITION MRI.
2. SPIRAL CT (DUAL SLICE).
3. 3D AND 4D ULTRASOUND AND DOPPLER
4. MAMMOGRAPHY
5. COMPUTED RADIOGRAPHY.

The department functions 24 x 7 with radiographer and technologist available round the clock for any emergency.

RADIOLOGIST

1. DR.VEENA NORONHA – DMRD DNB (MUMBAI UNIVERSITY)
FULL TIME SENIOR CONSULTANT SPECIALIZED IN CT AND MRI.
2. DR.S.SIVA SUNDAR – DMRD, DNB

1.5T MRI HDx (16 Channel)

It is the latest MRI from GE healthcare. It is capable of all high end applications and total body imaging.

The whole abdomen in one breath-hold. “Can’t miss” vascular scans.

LAVA-HD, The applications:

1. NEURO IMAGING

ROUTINE IMAGING
MR SPECTROSCOPY
DIFFUSION AND PERFUSION IMAGING
FUNCTIONAL MRI (F MRI)
ANGIOGRAPHY – CONTRAST ENHANCED
FIESTA FOR CRANIAL NERVE IMAGING

A modular Signa HD high-density Head-Neck_Spine Array. With a full suite of brain and spine imaging applications. PROPELLER”- HD – Software which allows Clear brain images on a moving patient.

2. VASCULAR IMAGING

TRICKS (Time Resolved Imaging of Contrast KineticS) is a CEMRA multi-phase, single station, acquisition technique to visualize dynamic processes, such as the passage of blood with contrast agent through the vascular system. It eliminates the need for a timed or automatic triggering of contrast. TRICKS is typically used in third station run-offs (calf and foot) and brain imaging of AVMs and aneurysms.

3. ADOMINAL IMAGING

ADVANCED STUDIESMRCP – 2D AND 3DRENAL AND ABDOMINAL AORTAIn addition to LAVA-XV demonstrating superior anatomical imaging. It also plays an important role in providing useful pre-surgical information regarding vascular structures.

4. CARDIAC AND CHEST IMAGING

MYOCARDIAL VIABILITY.

CartiGram provides a non-invasive assessment of articular cartilage disease and automatically generates color-coded maps.

5. MUSCULOSKELETAL IMAGING HIGH DEFINITION COILS FOR EXTREMITY IMAGING.

CARTILAGE MAPPING

T2 Map is used to image cartilage. Healthy collagen, which has a short T2 relaxation time, is a highly-organized, anisotropic structure that restricts the flow of water. The body uses this cushion of water to absorb shock. The T2 relaxation time of articular cartilage is a function of the water content of the tissue. An increase in T2 relaxation times within cartilage has been associated with matrix damage, especially loss of collagen matrix. The T2 Map and the parametric images produce visible image contrast changes (T1 and T2 alterations) in early stages of cartilage degeneration, such as osteoarthritis.

ULTRASOUND – WITH 3D AND 4D IMAGING

GEs Volusion 730 is the worlds first ultrasound system capable of true volume Ultrasound. Enables real-time techniques for acquiring, navigating and analyzing volumetric images so that you can make clinical decisions with unprecedented confidence.

The system allows you to explore images in any plane to reveal the smallest details with stunning clarity and apply sophisticated analytical tools to answer virtually any of your clinical questions.

Ist trimester Obstetrics:

The industry leading 4D endo-vaginal transducer technology allows you to quickly acquire volumes of the first trimester fetus and easily perform the required analysis.

2nd / 3rd trimester Obstetrics:

Within seconds, using the industrys lightest 4D abdominal transducer and GEs STIC technology, you can perform a comprehensive standard ultrasound exam including fetal heart outflow tracts and save the volume for further analysis either on the Volusion, or offline with 4D View PC software and View Point.

Gynecology :

From pelvic pain to incontinence and infertility, utilizing the 4D endo-vaginal transducer, you can quickly perform your sonohysterography procedures, obtaining the necessary volumes in seconds and analyzing the data after the acquisition.

Pediatrics :

In an environment where stability is critical, GEs exclusive 4D transducer technology allows for quick volume scans on neonates. Whether you are imaging the brain or abdomen, you can dramatically reduce environment distress.

Breast : The Volusons multi-planar and RealTime 4D biopsy capabilities provide additional confidence in guidance procedures. In addition, with GEs exclusive 4D linear transducer, you can conduct a comprehensive breast ultrasound exam in minutes, yielding high-quality images critical for the dense-breast for high-risk patient.
