Radiology

Paras Institute of Radiology is committed to provide state of the art diagnostic services to our patients and referring physicians. It is located in the ground floor of the hospital’s sprawling complex. Be it MRI, CT scan, Ultrasound or General Radiology, each unit in the department is self contained with a separate reception, waiting area, examination and equipment room. In addition, there is a local network connecting CT and MRI to a common workstation facilitating faster and more efficient reporting. This department has drastically changed the way patients receive Healthcare.

Electromyography, or EMG , involves testing the electrical activity of muscles. Often, EMG testing is performed with another test that measures the conducting function of nerves. This is called a nerve conduction study. Because both tests are often performed at the same office visit and by the same personnel, the risks and procedures generally apply to both tests. People usually have a small amount of discomfort during EMG testing because of pin insertion. Disposable needles are used so there is no risk of infection. During nerve conduction studies, small electrodes are taped to the skin or placed around fingers.

Paras Institute of Radiology is equipped with state of the art EMG equipments and technicians who administers the test Often muscle activity is monitored through a speaker during the test, which may make a popping or soft roaring noise. The EMG technician will be looking at an oscilloscope, which looks like a small TV set during the procedure.

An electroencephalogram (EEG) is a test that measures and records the electrical activity of your brain by using sensors electrodes attached to your head and connected by wires to a computer. The computer records your brain’s electrical activity on the screen or on paper as wavy lines. Certain conditions, such as seizures , can be detected by observing changes in the normal pattern of the brain’s electrical activity.

At Paras Institute of Radiology, our neurodiagnostic testing capabilities are state-of-the-art.There are special facilities for bedside EEG recording. Bedside EEG facilities have been extended to critical patients in ICU, CCU, pediatric ICU

Mammography is a screening tool, searching for cancer when there are no symptoms of anything being wrong. A mammogram detects lumps, changes in breast tissue or calcification when they’re too small to be found in a physical exam.

We have specially trained radiology technologists who perform the mammogram by positioning the breast tissue in the screening equipment.

The results of your mammogram are given to your before you leave the hospital to reduce any anxiety you may have about the screening. We give you a letter outlining the results and any recommendations, if needed. A copy of the report is also provided to your primary care physician or the doctor who ordered the test.

Bone Density scanning, also called bone densitometry is an enhanced form of x-ray technology that can diagnose bone loss early enough to be treated. Bone densitometry is most often used to diagnose osteoporosis , Osteoporosis is a very common condition that mostly affects women, men can be affected by it too, though less frequently. Osteoporosis involves a gradual loss of calcium, causing the bones to become thinner, more fragile and more likely to break.

Paras Institute of Radiology is equipped with a densitometry machine that can calculate the density of bone and creates a chart that compares the patient’s density to what the density should be. Density is the amount of calcium found in bone. The higher the density, the stronger the bone is. Depending on the density levels found, our doctor may decide that the patient has normal bone density, a somewhat decreased bone density, or osteoporosis. Bone density readings help doctors devise a plan to prevent or treat osteoporosis. A bone density test can be repeated every few years to check whether bones are the same or worsening.

Endoscopy is a process that allows physicians to better examine the body’s passageways, including the esophagus, stomach, colon, etc. Through a piece of equipment known as an endoscope, the doctor can directly look at specific areas to better evaluate and detect problems.

We at Paras Institute of Radiology have a full range of diagnostic and therapeutic Endoscopic procedures using video system is available. The procedures include bronchoscopy, gastroscopy, colonoscopy, endoscopic ultrasound and Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio-Pancreatography (ERCP).

Both in-patient and out-patient services are available for patients.

GE’s Voluson® 730 is the world’s first ultrasound system capable of true Volume Ultrasound. It’s a powerful system that enables real-time techniques for acquiring, navigating and analyzing volumetric images so that you can make clinical decisions with unprecedented confidence. Voluson 730, can now acquire and construct volumetric images in real time – up to 40 volumes per second.

The system allows 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. Volume Ultrasound not only improves your 3D/4D capabilities, it enhances your 2D imaging as well, for even greater diagnostic confidence in your obstetrical, gynecologic, breast and general imaging studies. Through the combination of Voluson and ViewPoint with 4D View, you can extend and expand your diagnostic capabilities while streamlining your practice workflow and increasing diagnostic confidence.

Paras Institute of Radiology is equipped with GE CT scanner. It ensures minimum possible radiation exposure with maximum acquisition efficiency, optimized application protocols and real time tube current modulation. It has a workstation enabling 3D applications like Real-time MPR, SSD and Volume Measurement and CT angiography .

Multi-Slice CT Scan

Paras Institute of Radiology is equipped with GE CT scanner. It ensures minimum possible radiation exposure with maximum acquisition efficiency, optimized application protocols and real time tube current modulation. It has a workstation enabling 3D applications like Real-time MPR, SSD and Volume Measurement and CT angiography .

Provides speed, resolution, image quality, reduced dose, and coverage. Faster acquisitions at reduced dose help enable a wider array of advanced applications.

Provides clinicians with the speed to perform more aggressive protocols for CTA studies – lower limbs can be scanned in the arterial phase. And a lung scan can be performed in a single breath hold. Multi-phase studies of the liver and pancrease also benefit from the increased speed.

CT/e Dual’s sub-millimeter acquisition (with no post-patient collimation) provides the high spatial resolution required for the visualization of small anatomy, such as the auditory ossicles and the fine detail of the knee, wrist or ankle. Outstanding IQ can be generated for studies of the posterior fossa.

Utilizing Design for Six Sigma methodologies, GE CT Scanner built a user interface that provides fast, accurate exams, as well as improves patient throughput and staff productivity.
