The Department of Radiodiagnosis and Imaging at AIMSR has adopted the worlds latest developments in diagnostic equipments and will keep pace with fast-changing technology for quick and accurate results. We are committed to offer the best care and technology to our patients and referring doctors. The Department of Radiology and Imaging is open round the clock for the benefit of patients.
The Department boasts of high-quality patient care with world class equipment and highly trained specialists. The department plays a key role in advancing the state of the art imaging technologies including CT (computed tomography), MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), X-Ray (radiography) and ultrasound as well as invasive, image-guided interventional procedures. Hence, there is ample opportunity for growth in clinico-radiological work, teaching and research activities.
Department of Radiology has certified radiologists specializing in various kinds of imaging modalities. We provide excellent-quality, radiation safe and cost effective care to patients through medical imaging. The department integrates imaging with research for further advancement of technology and improved clinical benefits. We maintain highest quality of care in clinical work, procedures and teaching.
The diagnostic division comprises of four sections: conventional radiography and procedures, ultrasound, computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
The Department is equipped with Digital Radiography system- Computed Radiography. There are multiple X-ray units including X-ray units with IITVs. There are portable X-ray machines which are being routinely used for admitted patients in emergency and wards. There is portable C- Arm being used in Operation Theatres.
